Lake Express gets new JRC radar

JRC reports that it has installed the world’s smallest IMO compliant Solid State S-band radar with 8-ft antenna for the high speed car/passenger ferry Lake Express.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The dual X- and S-band radar installation features magnetron-free Solid State technology to reduce service costs, equipment which has now been implemented on more than 700 vessels to date.

“In researching the options for this project, JRC’s offerings stood out and the finished install has exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with the ease of use and performance of the new equipment and we look forward to the advanced features of this navigation suite serving us for years to come,” said John Rogers, Lake Express.

The Lake Express bridge upgrade included the interswitched radar and chart radar as well as a new ECDIS, all equipped with 26-inch monitors. Also installed were a GPS navigator, AIS, GPS compass and AlphaLine repeater for use as a heading and Rate-of-Turn indicator.{/mprestriction}
