JRC receives highest DNV GL INS type approval

(TOKYO) — Japan Radio Company (JRC) announced that it has received DNV GL Integrated Navigation System (INS) type approval for the multi-function display (MFD) which also includes the renowned network based ICS suffix. The flexible system meets and exceeds the new IMO performance standard resolution MSC.252(83) and is approved to be expanded to meet the highest class notations such as NAUT-OC/AW/OSV to ensure the safety of a vessel at sea.

The INS provides alert management for ease of situational awareness by categorizing upon priority and synchronizes radar targets within task stations, detected by advanced radar transceivers, including the solid state S-band, that keep the workload within the capacity of operators.

Within the INS, the system is composed of five multi-functional displays of the JMR-9200 and JAN-9200 series for task control between radar, ECDIS and conning displays. The MFDs are fully integrated as network based navigation systems (ICS) and are capable of managing the assigned functions simultaneously, with all functions being accessible to the navigator by a single operator action.

The JRC INS will complement the user’s capability and enhance safe navigation, as evidenced by the first contracts for more than 10 vessels with the INS solution for deliveries starting as early as summer 2016.
