Newly developed antennas with enhanced high durability and reliability
▶ Newly designed antenna scanners to suppress the aerodynamic drag and
prevent a spike in temperature
▶ Less maintenance required through use of the DC brushless motor
▶ Ethernet network link between antenna unit
and below deck processor unit
The analog signals are converted into
the digital signals within the antenna unit and sent to the below deck
processor unit via Ethernet network. This network technology eliminates loss
of signal gain between antenna unit and processor unit that may be seen in
conventional Radar system.
▶ Optional LAN Signal Converter enables users to extend the cable
between antenna unit and processor unit or to utilize the existing cables
Solid State transceiver available
▶ Less noise and much clearer targets
FURUNO’s Solid State Radar technology generates clearer echo images,
which allows users to obtain clearer picture of what are around their
vessel, including weak targets from small craft.
The newly developed Power Amplifier generates properly modulated radio
frequency to the targets around the vessels. Also, the receiver catches
the weak signals, which are processed inside the Power Amplifier module to
reduce the clutters.
▶ Fan-less antenna design requires less maintenance
▶ Lower maintenance hours and costs compared
to Magnetron radar
No need to replace the Magnetron
▶ Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function provides clear echoes
Users can quickly adjust the radar image with a single action. When
Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function is activated, the system
automatically adjusts the clutter reduction filter and gain control
according to the sea and weather conditions selected (Calm/Rough Sea/Hard
Our advanced echo averaging architecture is also incorporated into Automatic
Clutter Elimination (ACE) function. Users can avoid complicated adjustment
processes, resulting in clear echo images.
▶ Improved Target Tracking (TT) function
Target acquisition takes only a few seconds
- ● Acquired target does not jump to adjacent target
- ● Reliable and stable tracking of high-speed and rapidly maneuvering
▶ Advanced Interference Reduction (IR)
Target Echo does not become smaller
even with IR on
▶ 26” Wide LCD monitor compatibility
▶ Complies with the following regulations:
- ● IEC62388 Ed. 2.0
- ● IEC61174 Ed. 3.0
- ● IEC62288
- ● IEC61162-1 Ed. 4.0
- ● IEC61162-2
Multifunction display (MFD) capability*
FURUNO offers workstations that combine flexibility and redundancy. Users
may easily select ECDIS, Chart Radar, Conning display or Alert Management
System at any multi-function display. Navigators will enjoy reduced workload
and significant freedom to move about the bridge. All necessary information
is available on a variety of displays and at locations that may be altered
*MFD capability is to be implemented as software update

▶ Common sensor adaptor makes installation and maintenance easy
The Sensor Adapter acts as a central medium to gather all of the sensor
data and collectively feed it to all FAR-3000 Chart Radar and
FMD-3200/3300 ECDIS in the network. Since the sensor adapter can be
extended to interface with all the sensors within the network, individual
cable connections in the sensor-to-Chart Radar/ECDIS interface can be
Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the
processor’s 8 serial I/0 ports.
Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions
- ● The sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked Chart
Radar and ECDIS systems,
- ● The number of sensors interfaced is more than the number of the
ports the processor has (8 serial I/O ports, 1 digital IN and 6
digital OUT), and/or
- ● The networked sensors include analog sensors.
In order to integrate onboard sensors into the navigation network, the
sensor adapter may be interfaced with the switching hub HUB-100 from which
distribution of the sensor data throughout the network is possible.
Alternatively, multiple sensor adapters may be interfaced via Ethernet to
integrate onboard sensors for use in the shipboard network.
FURUNO’s new user interface delivers straightforward operation
Unique & smart operation tool – “Status bar” and “InstantAccess bar”
The user interface of the Radar utilizes carefully organized operational
tools: The Status bar and The InstantAccess bar.
These operational tools deliver straightforward, task-based operation by
which the operator can quickly perform tasks without having to navigate an
intricate menu tree.
Stress-free operation with the well-designed control unit
All operations can be controlled with the trackball.
The context menu contains all the available actions related to the
selected icon or area, it provides quick access to tasks.
