CHART RADAR Models: FAR-3000 series
FURUNO FAR-3000 Chart Radar offers the reliable situation awareness and navigation safety
by greatly enhanced target detection.
Newly developed antennas with enhanced high durability and reliability
▶ Newly designed antenna scanners to suppress the aerodynamic drag and prevent a spike in temperature
▶ Less maintenance required through use of the DC brushless motor
▶ Ethernet network link between antenna unit and below deck processor unit
The analog signals are converted into the digital signals within the antenna unit and sent to the below
deck processor unit via Ethernet network. This network technology eliminates loss of signal gain between
antenna unit and processor unit that may be seen in conventional Radar system.
▶ Optional LAN Signal Converter enables users to extend the cable between antenna unit and processor unit
or to utilize the existing cables when retrofitting
Solid State transceiver available
▶ Less noise and much clearer targets
FURUNO’s Solid State Radar technology generates
clearer echo images, which allows users to obtain
clearer picture of what are around their vessel,
including weak targets from small craft.
The newly developed Power Amplifier generates
properly modulated radio frequency to the targets
around the vessels. Also, the receiver catches
the weak signals, which are processed inside the
Power Amplifier module to reduce the clutters.
▶ Fan-less antenna design requires less maintenance
▶ Lower maintenance hours and costs compared to Magnetron radar
No need to replace the Magnetron
▶ Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function provides clear echoes
Users can quickly adjust the radar image with a single action. When Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function
is activated, the system automatically adjusts the clutter reduction filter and gain control according to the sea
and weather conditions selected (Calm/Rough Sea/Hard Rain).
Advanced echo averaging architecture is also incorporated into Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) function.
Users can avoid complicated adjustment processes, resulting in clear echo images.

▶ Improved Target Tracking (TT) function
• Target acquisition takes only a few seconds
• Acquired target does not jump to adjacent target
• Reliable and stable tracking of high-speed and rapidly maneuvering vessels
▶ Advanced Interference Reduction (IR) function
Target Echo does not become smaller even with IR on
▶ 26” Wide LCD monitor compatibility
▶ Complies with the following regulations:
• IEC62388 Ed. 2.0 • IEC61174 Ed. 3.0 • IEC62288 • IEC61162-1 Ed. 4.0 • IEC61162-2
Multifunction display (MFD) capability*
FURUNO offers workstations that combine flexibility and redundancy. Users may easily select ECDIS, Chart Radar,
Conning display or Alert Management System at any multi-function display. Navigators will enjoy reduced workload
and significant freedom to move about the bridge. All necessary information is available on a variety of displays
and at locations that may be altered as required.
*MFD capability is to be implemented as software update

▶ Common sensor adaptor makes installation and maintenance easy
The Sensor Adapter acts as a central medium to gather all of the sensor data and collectively feed it to all FAR-3000
Chart Radar and FMD-3200/3300 ECDIS in the network. Since the sensor adapter can be extended to interface with all the
sensors within the network, individual cable connections in the sensor-to-Chart Radar/ECDIS interface can be greatly
Navigation sensors can be directly interfaced with the processor’s 8 serial I/0 ports.
Sensor adapters are required under the following conditions
• The sensor data is to be shared amongst multiple networked Chart Radar and ECDIS systems,
• The number of sensors interfaced is more than the number of the ports the processor has (8 serial I/O ports,
1 digital IN and 6 digital OUT), and/or
• The networked sensors include analog sensors.
In order to integrate onboard sensors into the navigation network, the sensor adapter may be interfaced with the
switching hub HUB-100 from which distribution of the sensor data throughout the network is possible. Alternatively,
multiple sensor adapters may be interfaced via Ethernet to integrate onboard sensors for use in the shipboard network.

FURUNO’s new user interface delivers straightforward operation
Unique & smart operation tool – “Status bar” and “InstantAccess bar™”
The user interface of the Radar utilizes carefully organized operational tools: The Status bar and The InstantAccess bar™.
These operational tools deliver straightforward, task-based operation by which the operator can quickly perform tasks
without having to navigate an intricate menu tree.
Status bar contains information about
the operation status, i.e.,MFD operating
mode,main tasks assigned to each MFD
InstantAccess bar™ contains all the tasks
(functions or actions) corresponding to
the operation mode currently selected so
that quick access to neccessary functions/
actions can be made.
Stress-free operation with the well-designed control unit
All operations can be controlled with the trackball.
The context menu contains all
the available actions related to
the selected icon or area, it
provides quick access to tasks.
Expandability - Ice/Oil detection Radar
FAR-3000 series X-band radar can be used as an ice/oil detection radar by connecting a dedicated processor unit.
Ice Radar Oil Radar
Ice Radar is suitable for all sizes Oil Radar detects oil at sea, for use
of vessels in icy conditions. in recovery operations during oil spills
