Navi-Radar 3000

PC-based Radar System with Advanced ARPA

The Navi-Radar 3000 is a new generation PC-based Radar System with advanced ARPA and Chart facilities and extended integration capabilities.   Navi-Radar performs such vital functions as scanner control, formation of the radar image for display in combination with an electronic chart; as well as automatic detection, acquisition and tracking of targets, in full compliance with IMO and IEC requirements.

Navi-Radar is of special interest to retrofit and repaired ships, mega yachts, SAR vessels, Coast Guard and patrol boats.

Key benefits of Navi-Radar 3000:

  • PC-based solution with flexible hardware options
  • Intelligent integration with other navigational products from Transas
  • Interfacing to multiple radar scanner types with or without control functions
  • Use of the world's electronic chart collection in Transas TX-97 vector format
  • Performance of radar functions as required by IEC 60936-1
  • Performance of ARPA functions as required by IEC 60872-1

Radar functions, performed in full compliance with EIC 60936-1

  • Video Signal Processing
  • Receipt of a video signal and its digital processing
  • Clutter filtering
  • Receipt of synchronising pulses, information on the antenna turn angle in the form of succession of pulses, as well as in the form of synchro or resolver voltage. Receipt of the bearing pulse, video signal and start pulses in the form of a composite signal is provided.
