Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) has added another emulation product to its family of Radar Emulators, to cover the Furuno FAR21X7 radar.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}PC21X7 utilises the same simulation engine as the rest of BCG’s radar simulation products, to offer a tool for student’s looking to gain FAR-21X7 or SPS-50 radar experience in their ship navigation and collision avoidance training.

The radar image incorporates simulation of landmass, targets, precipitation returns, sea clutter and other effects seen on a real radar.

PC21X7 also includes a zoom window, that allows the user to zoom in and see a specific area of their radar screen in a separate window, as well as the ability to send and receive AIS text messages in the same manner as the real radar.

Other software features include a full Automated Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA), dual Electronic Bearing Lines & Variable Range Markers (EBL & VRM), multiple presentation modes, AIS functionality and range scaling. For ARPA support, PC21X7 provides target acquisition and tracking, leading vectors and history trails, and trial manoeuvres.{/mprestriction}
