Japan Radio Co., Ltd., Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, President: Mr Yorihisa Suwa, has developed and received certification for three series of marine radars comprising 24 models complying with the new IMO radar performance standard MSC.192 (79) which will be implemented for radars installed on or after 1st July, 2008. The European MED approval certification acquired by Japan Radio Company Limited from EU Notified Body QinetiQ is the first in the World for radars complying with these new IMO requirements.

The new IMO radar performance standard IEC 62388:2008 has the following improvements and additional functionality compared to the current requirements:

  • Improved radar target detection performance in rain and sea clutter.
  • Additional changes in the basic requirements for radar performance
  • ITU-R Conformity to the frequency band spurious emissions.
  • Conformity to IMO performance standards on navigation presentation MSC.191(79)
  • Radar image display and measurement by Consistent Common Reference Position (CCRP).

In addition, JRC has integrated the latest leading technologies, such as "ConstaviewTM", which rotates and displays the radar images in real time with an interface for future systematization of the bridge system.

Radars installed on or after 1st July, 2008 are required to conform to new IMO radar performance standard MSC.192 (79).
