JRC Delivers 15,000th Tornado Radar

(Press Release)
Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC) delivered its 15,000th Tornado radar from the Mitaka factory in Tokyo, Japan. Found in the JMA-5200 through to the JMA-9100 series, this new capability allowed the radars to perform the complex tasks associated with the company’s other in-house developed technologies, Constaview and Target Enhancement Function (TEF).
JRC’s Constaview allows full processing of data within milliseconds, generating a smooth and continuous (radar) image rotation. TEF allows target enhancement relative to the target size, resulting in a proportional enhancement where the relative enhancement of smaller targets is greater than applied to larger targets.
Since the first JMA-5300 Tornado radar was shipped in 2004, JRC has delivered an average of six per day to reach this 15,000 milestone.
