V650 Series Functions
The radar information from up to 3 radar stations can be integrated and tracked on the VTS screen. This function allows the seamless surveillance of a wider sea area. A shadow area which a single radar station cannot detect can also be monitored by the multi-radar integrated system.
Various Types of Antenna
Each radar antenna is selectable from a lineup of 9-foot (2-unit), 9-foot (3-unit), 18-foot (3-unit) horizontal and 18-foot(3-unit) circular types, and the X-band transmitter/ receiver system is available in the conventional magnetron type and the solid-state type, allowing the optimum system configuration to meet the purpose of use and the sea water coverage.
Solid State Transmitter Receiver (NTG-403)
Automatic Radar Tracking
The Image Server/Tracker provides high resolution radar image processing and high tracking performance. The tracking of the target echo entering in the pre-set area or crossing the line setting by the user on the Operation Display is automatically started and the tracking of only selected target echo(es) by manual is (are) also available. The stationed buoy or rocks such as not expecting vessel are able to exclude a tracking target.
This VTS system is provided with various alarm functions to prevent vessel collision accidents and keep the safety and security at sea areas.
If pre-setting alarm conditions are satisfied, the alarm sound is automatically generated and inform to the operator. Pre-setting alarms are as follows;
- Guard Zone Entry (drawn by operator)
- Guard Line Crossing
- Speed Limit (maximum speed, minimum speed)
- Leaving Anchor
- Lost Target
- System Failure, etc.
Recording and Playback Function
The information on the Operation Display and tracking target in formation are automatically recorded (recording period can be selected by the user) and are able to replay on the Operation Display with a playback software. Automatic recording is functioned during the playback operation simultaneously.
This function allows the status analysis to be made in event of accident occurrence and the sea area management system to be improved.
AIS Receiver (option) / AIS Base station(option)
AIS information can be integrated on the Operation Display. If the radar target echo and the AIS target vessel are identified, those are automatically integrated and displayed on the screen with a single symbol.
The VTS system can select the function of AIS base Station and send own station data to other stations.
CCTV Camera (option)
By integrating the radar system with a CCTV (closed circuit television) camera, the system can control the camera to direct to a target echo on the radar monitor of the Operation Display. The system can also control the CCTV camera to track a target echo based on the radar track information or to automatically track a vessel which enters a security area. Therefore, the actual movement of the vessel can be monitored on the CCTV monitor using the symbol indicated on the radar monitor.
Up to 5 Operation Displays can be installed optionally, allowing two or more VTS operators to monitor sea water areas. By selecting optional displays, up to 3 screens ca n be connected to one Operation Display Unit. The 3 display screens can present 3 different displays individually or one integrated water area as a single screen, allowing flexible screen configuration.
Network selection (option)
The network linking multiple radar stations and the surveillance center with each other can select LAN connection and the following types of link:
- Wireless LAN
- Optical fiber cable
- Microwave multiple
