|FURUNO ARPA Radar FAR-28x7 series and FAR-21x7 series fully meet the latest performance standards of IMO
and IEC for all ships and for ships under 10,000 GT, respectively. It is designed to meet the demands of today's maritime industry.
The FAR-21x7/28x7 series radar has DVI (Digital Video Interface) facility integrated to deliver crisp and clear radar images.
Target detection is enhanced by sophisticated signal processing techniques featuring superb short range detection.
AIS information scheme can be incorporated when AIS transponder/receiver is interfaced, thereby further enhancing
situation awareness of the operators. FURUNO ARPA Radar FAR-21x7/28x7 series brings greater bridge performance and
enhanced navigation accuracy, increasing both operating efficiency and safety level at sea.

|▶ 100 Base-TX Ethernet Network System
The 100 Base-TX Ethernet is utilized to network up to four sets of FAR-21x7/28x7 series radar with ECDIS FEA-2107/2807.
This Ethernet data link gives high-speed and stable navigational data sharing amongst the equipment networked within
the system. This network capability gives options to choose from a single station system configuration to complete
Integrated Navigation System (INS).
▶ Target Tracking(TT: ARPA)/AIS
The FAR-21x7/28x7 series radar delivers full TT functionality and can plot up to 100 targets.
In addition, this radar series is displaying up to 1,000 targets received from the AIS transponder system.
Detailed information about the targets can be shown in data cells on right hand side of the screen.
TT/AIS information Scheme gives the operator full control over dense traffic. The type of AIS Symbol shows if
it is a sleeping target, a normal target, a selected target, a dangerous target or a lost target.
▶ AIS Symbols
COG/SOG vector changes its length with speed. ROT mark is viewable at the COG/SOG vector tip when a target has
FURUNO Satellite Compass SC-50/110 or gyrocompass, which deal ROT serial sentence, installed.
▶ Guard Zones
▶ Automatic Acquisition Zones
Two automatic acquisition zones can be set in a sector or in any form. These zone act as suppression zones,
avoiding unnecessary overloading to the processor and clutter by disabling automatic acquisition and tracking
outside them. Targets in an automatic acquisition zone are shown with an inverse triangle. The operator can
manually acquire important targets without restriction, an essential aid and source of information on assessing
▶ Guard Zones and Anchor Watch Zone
Guard Zones generate visual and audible alarms when targets entered the operator-set zones. One of the Guard Zones
can be used as an anchor watch to alert the operator when own ship or targets drift away from the set zone.
▶ CPA Alarm
The target tracking symbol changes to a triangle when its predicted course violates the operator-set CPA/TCPA so
that the operator may be notified of the approaching targets to the own ship for collision avoidance.
The operator can readily change the vector lengths to evaluate the target movement trend.
|▶ Target Trails
Target trail feature generates a monotone or gradual
shading afterglow on all objects on the display in
order to help clarify traffic situation.
Echo trails can be displayed in either true or relative
motion (only true trail on TM). Relative trails show
relative movements between targets and own ship.
True motion trails require a gyrocompass signal and own
ship speed input to cancel own ship's movement and present
true target movements in accordance with their
over-the-ground speeds and courses.

|▶ Stress-free Operation through Ergonomically-designed Control Unit
The control head has logically arranged operation Scheme through a combination of push keys and a trackball.
Well-organized menus ensure that all operations can be performed with a trackball.

to be placed close to captain chair for remote operation.
|▶ Expandability - Ice/Oil detection Radar
FAR-2xx7 series X-band radar can be used as an ice/oil detection radar by connecting a dedicated processor unit.
Ice Radar is suitable for all sizes of
vessels in icy conditions.
Oil Radar detects oil at sea, for use in
recovery operations during oil spills.
