The JMA-3300 series is JRC's newest radar, featuring a 10.4-inch ultra bright LCD, and incorporates the latest digital signal processing for excellent target identification and detection in a compact design.
The tough glass bonded LCD is backlit by white LED's giving 1000cd/m2 of brightness, making the radar image amazingly sharp. Bonding is a proceses whereby the air gap between the front glass and LCD module is filled with a special compound, significantly enhancing sunlight reflection, night vision and overheating as well as a reduction of possible condensation. This is a feature not previously found on this class of radar.
JRC engineers custom designed the System-on-Chip (SoC) inside the new JMA-3300 series to be an extremely powerful tool. With such a small chip, weighing less than a sugar cube, performance remains at our high standards. At the same time, the SoC technology makes the compact radar very power efficient.
AIS and MARPA ™
The new radar has the ability to display 50 AIS symbols, and 10 MARPA ™ tracking targets as standard. The high quality of the display provides outstanding target definition and discrimination. The (second generation) MARPA ™ continues JRC's successful MARPA ™ technology first found in the previous JMA-2300 radar series. Our engineers continued developing and improving the technology, until now, with MARPA ™, manual or automatic target tracking is even more reliable.
The new radar has an easy vessel searching function based on AIS, called DirecTrak™. This function shows the nearest 50 vessels received by the AIS. If you select a vessel on the list, then range and bearing is displayed of the selected vessel.
Based on JRC's patented technology found in the bigger radars, the new JMA-3300 integrates Semi-Constaview™. This allows fast processing of targets, showing true trails in Head-Up mode, without interference of fixed targets, such as land or mass.
With Mount Fuji in the background, JRC engineers successfully tested the new JMA-3300 radar in Suruga Bay. See on the right side actual photos results of our SoC technology. Land echoes are clearly visible and smaller echoes are far more enlarged than bigger echoes, giving a better on-screen separation and identification.
Smooth and comfortable operation is guaranteed with the solid and responsive feel of the keys. A dedicated jog-dial is conveniently integrated as well as the function keys for one-touch access to GAIN, SEA and RAIN. The JMA-3300 also incorporates 4 soft-key switches just below the display that can be assigned by the user. Here you can specify commonly used functions, making it even simpler to navigate.
Other ship's movement and speed can be monitored from length and direction of their trails, primarily serving for collision avoidance.
It integrates four different trail length modes, which will show a ship's course instantly, a unique operational feature that allows for more flexibility.
With the transparent (pop-up) windows, you can navigate through menus or view required data, such as own ship data or cursor data, without losing the complete radar image.
The JMA-3300 series allows you to switch between English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Norwegian
