JRC's new IMO approved JMA-9172-SA, S-band Solid State radar, represents a new generation of marine radars, utilizing advanced signal processing technology to display targets with high accuracy while using a stabilized high-power solid state transceiver. The advanced radar functions and operation are based on JRC's successful JMA-9100 radar series.


Advanced signal processing

JRC's new solid state architecture integrates an advanced signal processing technology that detects and displays information at a new level.

These dedicated signal processing circuits are producing higher capability than a magnetron radar, and greatly exceeding detection performance.

The solid state has a (peak) power of 250 W, superseding a typical marine radar in which the magnetron has a 30kW power output.

Moving target detection

This solid state radar will easily detect moving targets in clutter compared to conventional radars. A new Doppler filter at the heart of the solid state radar not only detects moving targets in clutter, but also determines and clearly displays them on the screen.

Long range target detection

Advanced pulse compression with the 250 W solid state transceiver not only improves short range performance, but dramatically improves long range target detection while using only 1/100 of the power of a conventional radar.

Low maintenance transceiver

The radar integrates a highly reliable solid state transceiver in place of a life limited magnetron. The solid state radar provides higher reliability and performance and will keep maintenance costs to a minimum.

No tuning and pre-heating

The transceiver, by virtue of its solid state design, requires no tuning and pre-heating. Transmission is available immediately after the power is turned on.
