Category: Tags: ,



The new JMA-1030 radar series is JRC’s very first touch operated radar with new dome scanners that provide you with highly accurate target clarity and ease of mind of your surroundings during night or intense fog.

7-inch color touch operation

The high definition 7-inch wide display has allowed JRC engineers to develop an exciting new software approach that offers an incredibly easy-to-use icon based navigation experience with simple menus and dedicated functions.

The set of icons has been carefully designed. We brought the elements and visual style of our commercial class Multi Function Display (MFD) to our most compact series of radars. Built with the proven quality you expect from us.

System-on-Chip technology

JRC engineers custom designed the System-on-Chip (SoC) inside the new JMA-1030 series to be an extremely powerful tool and at the same time makes the display compact and very power efficient.

AIS and MARPA™ standard

The new radar has the ability to display 50 AIS*1 symbols, and 10 MARPA™*2 tracking targets as standard. The high quality of the display provides outstanding target definition and discrimination.

Man overboard

A slippery deck or unexpected movement of the ship are situations in which a person may possibly fall overboard. The JMA-1030 integrates a single press MOB*3 button which instantly displays a dedicated symbol and remembers latitude and longitude to enable accurate search and rescue efforts.

*1 AIS requires ship’s heading, position and AIS info

*2 MARPA™ requires ship’s heading info

*3 MOB requires ship’s position info



The JMA-1030 has a 3 channel NMEA signal input allowing connections to navigation equipment such as GPS; for own position, waypoints and speed for MARPA tracking. It also allows a GPS compass connection for your heading (and MARPA tracking) and/or AIS for displaying targets.

Multi speed scanners

With this new radar, JRC introduces two new small and light weight 4kW multi-speed scanners available in a 1.5ft (450mm) and 2ft (620mm) radome. The supplied 10m*1 cable allows you to install the dome on a mast, radar arch, or mounting on a pole. The scanners features a new high rate PRF*2, which allows for a highly accurate short range detection.

Depending on vessel operations and user preferences, magnetron life can be extended by lowering the output power with the economy mode and/or user selectable transmitting intervals with the timed TX mode*3.
