FR8065 12.1" 6kW, 72nm UHD Radar System - Less Antenna with 20M Cable

State of the art signal processing an& UHD digital radar technology!

The 12.1" color radar FR8005 series features state of the art signal processing, which makes it easier to identify targets in heavy rain and poor visibility. The FR8005 radar can discern between rain and surface reflections, providing the ability to find and track the movement of rain clouds as well as removing unnecessary echoes. For tracking the movement of other vessels at sea, "True Motion Trails" can be displayed as well as AIS/TT target-tracking with a zoom display function. When the vessel is in motion, the radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode."

Target-Tracking Zoom Display Function
Even during rainfalls or severe weather conditions, radar echoes are clearly displayed, and unnecessary echoes can be removed instantly with ease. Compared with current radars (FR8002 series) the technology for removing sea, rain and snow clutter has been greatly enhanced utilizing FURUNO's state of the art knowledge in digital signal processing. When using the Target mode, vessels close by and vessels on intersecting courses are automatically displayed zoomed in. These targets will remain displayed for as long as they pose any concern. Target Trails are also displayed, making it easy for the user to determine the movements of individual vessels.

True Trail Mode
When using the True Trail Mode, moving objects will show up on the main screen with a colorful trail. These trails make it possible to see the movement of nearby vessels in the blink of an eye.

True View Mode
The radar echoes move smoothly on the main display thanks to the "True View Mode". The True View Mode is based on the head-up mode. During the radar sweep, the echoes move according to the heading of your ship. Since the echoes move in real-time, the discrepancy between an observed target and what is displayed on the radar screen is greatly reduced.

Full-Screen Mode & Off-Center Mode
Make use of the whole display surface with the Full-Screen mode, giving you more information when making important decisions. When combining Full-Screen mode with Off-Center mode any target or point of interest can be observed in detail. The overlay information can be turned off, to observe targets obstructed by the text as well as providing an unobstructed radar view.

Target Tracking and AIS Display
The Target Tracking (TT) feature continously tracks and provides positional information for up to ten targets. An AIS device-equipped FR8005 series radar can track target heading, name, speed and direction of movement. With AIS it is possible to identify and track the movement of other vessels in heavy fog, during nighttime and otherwise difficult conditions. Another benefit is that with AIS you can identify obscured targets that the radar signals cannot reach, giving you more time to act. AIS can display up to 100 targets simultaneously, TT can display up to 10 different targets simultaneously.

Standard Features:
  • 12.1" SVGA color LCD with echo colors of 32 levels
  • Wide viewing angle LCD for great visibility from any direction
  • One-touch auto-adjust settings for Gain/Sea clutter/Rain clutter
  • Optional 48 rpm high-speed antenna rotation displays information clearly in narrow passages and on high-speed vessels
  • Superior short range target detection capability
  • Advanced auto modes to automatically adjust gain, tuning and AC rain/sea for delivering the best available pictures
  • True motion echo trail
  • Display Modes: Head-up, Course-up, North-up, True View, True Trail
  • Up to three programmable radar settings can be selected to give the best radar performance in different sea conditions

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
