JRC Debuts New Radar Series

Monday, August 30, 2004
JRC introduced the JMA-5300 series radars; the first of a new line of high performance radars built around a new proprietary JRC ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) architecture. These new systems use processors that are specifically designed to enable parallel processing using multiple ASIC’s for lightning fast operation of every feature. The JMA-5300 series will be available in five power outputs; 10kW, 25kW, 50kW X-Band plus 30kW and 60kW S-band, with antenna arrays of 6ft, 7ft or 9ft for X-Band and 8ft or 12ft for S-Band.

Complimenting the available choices in output power, the JMA-5300 series has a long list of options that allows these systems to be configured to meet the exact needs of every application. Some of the exclusive features include:

§ Constaview – A display enhancement that refreshes the radar picture every 16ms giving the radar operator a real-time presentation instead of the more common updated picture synced to the antenna rotation. Switching from one view to another, i.e. North-up to Heads-up, instantly produces a new complete radar image.

§ TEF – A multi-level Target Enhancement Feature that analyzes each echo and enhances the visual presentation of the target increasing discrimination between targets also reducing target fading and loss of ARPA target tracking.

§ TrueTrails – Presents target trails instantly in a true representation of the targets’ movements in any screen presentation or orientation.
