Expect realization of safe and environmentally-friendly operations Department of Maritime Systems Engineering, Division of Marine Technology,
The J-Marine GIS contributes to Safety of Navigation, Energy Efficiency and Verification of Accidents.
We exhibited at "SEA JAPAN 2022" held at Tokyo Big Sight for three days from April 20 (Wed.) to 22 (Fri.), 2022. We introduced the latest marine electronics, services, and applications centered on the "JRC Smart Ship Concept," which aims to realize automated ship operations in the near future.
JRC's vision of a land-based support center that remotely supports future automated vessels was introduced through VR contents.
Visitors were fitted with VR goggles and used controllers to move around the VR space and experience the display screens and explanations of each piece of equipment.
On video, we introduced the development project of the “Integrated Ship Operator Support System” for the accurate operation judgement by using the latest technologies such as AI towards the realization of the automatically operated ship.
JRC participated in the DFFAS consortium in the unmanned ship project “MEGURI2040” and was in charge of the development of the “Land Support Center”. In the JRC booth, we showed the operation status of the unmanned ship on the display of the system and introduced the actual “Land Support Center”, where a captain and a chief engineer monitor from the land in remote mode as operators.
We introduced X-band solid state radar that complies with the domestic laws and regulations and IMO.
The solid-state radar contributes to the cost reduction as it does not require magnetron replacement and also to the improvement of detection performance for its signal processing unique to the solid state feature.
We introduced the antenna lineup that supports Inmarsat Fleet Xpress (FX).
FX (Fleet Xpress) that realizes high speed and stable communication is a system that switches seamlessly between GX (Global Xpress), which provides high-speed communication, and FB (FleetBroadband), which ensures stable communication without the influence of rain, according to the situation.
We introduced a new echo sounder, JFE-400/700, which realizes high-accuracy and high-reliability sounding performance. JFE-400/700 is equipped with a high-visibility color touch-panel LCD complying with the IMO Resolution MSC.74 (69) Annex 4 and records and outputs depth data of the past 48 hours.
Autopilot “AlphaPilot” and a berthing system, “AlphaMINDS”, which are manufactured by Alphatron, a subsidiary of JRC, were exhibited for the first time in this country.
We introduced an appealing smart bridge system of high operability and convenience. This system contributes to the reduction of environmental loads by functionally arranging a radar, radio equipment, and a joystick for steering on the bridge console of the one-man steering specification with the European design incorporated.
