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 when retrofitting
NEW Solid State transceiver available
  • A complete Solid-State and Magnetron-free X-band / S-band Radar Solution
  • With X-band models added to the Solid-State FAR-3000 NXT Series, Furuno is able to provide commercial vessels with a Magnetron-free solution for both X-band and S-band Radars.

    * X-band Solid-State Chart Radar: Available in summer 2020

  • 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.


  • Lower maintenance hours and costs compared to Magnetron radar
  • No need to replace the Magnetron

  • Fan-less antenna design requires less maintenance (S-band only)
Features
  • 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 Rain).

    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.


    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.


  • Improved Target Tracking (TT) function
    1. Target acquisition takes only a few seconds
    2. Acquired target does not jump to adjacent target
    3. Reliable and stable tracking of high-speed and rapidly maneuvering vessels
  • Advanced Interference Reduction (IR) function
  • Target Echo does not become smaller even with IR on

  • 26” Wide LCD monitor compatibility
  • Complies with the following regulations:
    1. IEC62388 Ed. 2.0
    2. IEC61162-1 Ed. 4.0
    3. IEC61174 Ed. 3.0
    4. IEC61162-2
    5. IEC62288
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 as required.

*MFD capability is to be implemented as software update

Sensor Adapter
  • 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 greatly reduced.

    Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the processor’s 8 serial I/0 ports. Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions

    1. The sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked Chart Radar and ECDIS systems,
    2. 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
    3. 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


  • Intuitive operation
  • All operations can be controlled with the trackball.

    Contextual menu
    The context menu contains all the available actions related to the selected icon or area, it provides quick access to tasks.
Expandability - Ice/Oil detection Radar

FAR-3000 series X-band radar can be used as an ice/oil detection radar by connecting a dedicated processor unit.

Ice Radar


Ice Radar is suitable for all sizes of vessels in icy conditions.

Oil Radar


Oil Radar detects oil at sea, for use in recovery operations during oil spills.
