JRC/Alphatron Marine is committed to provide the best products, solutions and services to meet the needs of our customers. For this reason, we are pleased to announce that we have obtained an extension of the MED certificate for our successful CAT1&2 radar series JMR-5400.
The high performance JMR-5400 radar significantly improves short range detection and target discrimination on high brightness displays with intuitive icon-based operation. The system runs on the latest signal processing technology designed by JRC, allowing radar images to effortlessly run faster and more efficiently than ever before.
With this fully in-house developed radar, we can guarantee a clear radar image with clear targets even with rain and rough sea. By adding the proprietary optimization technology to the automatic clutter removal function, image discrimination at close range has reached a whole new level. The JMR-5400 radar series was already available with a wide combination of scanners, including the latest radar antenna scanner unit, bird detection antennas and solid-state radar antennas, making it already excellent for use on merchant ships, but also outstanding for use on fishing vessels, offshore ships and workboats.
Besides the fact that the MED certificate has been renewed, we also took the opportunity to add the large number of display’s with the latest technology to the certificate in order to offer our customers an even better product.
Together with our Norwegian colleagues of Pronav we have added a wide variety of display sizes, from 19-inch up to 55-inch. Due to this scalability and flexibility, this radar can be used for SOLAS category 2 but also for category 1 radars. The large 55-inch screens in particular will be used on fishing trawlers. However, customers are now free to choose and can apply a display size that is required for their vessel according to the class requirements. But this also comes with ease of use and comfort.
