NXT series, the NXT chapter in Radar technology

With Target Analyzer, hazardous targets are displayed in red

Solid-State Radars with pulse compression, Target Analyzer™ and Fast Target Tracking™ utilizing Doppler technology.Combined with FURUNO's exclusive RezBoost™ technology for echo sharpening. The DRS4D-NXT and DRS6A-NXT offer unrivaled performance in detecting hazardous echoes that might harm your boat.

* DRS6A-NXT compatibility Software Version, 5.0.1 or later
* DRS4D-NXT compatibility Software Version, 4.2.1 or later

Doppler, Target Analyzer™

Fast Target Tracking™ and Auto Target Acquire function

Approaching vessel with target vector

With Fast Target Tracking™ activated, it only takes a few seconds for a vector to be displayed once the target is selected, manually or automatically with the Auto Target Acquire function.

When the Auto Target Acquire function is on, approaching targets within 3NM range from own ship, which are potentially hazardous, are automatically acquired by Doppler calculation and will trigger an alarm*.

Together, Up to 100 targets can be acquired simultaneously, increasing considerably the safety and simplifying estimation of other vessel’s course and speed.

* TCPA setting required

X-Class series a whole new class of Radar

Pushing the boundaries of what is possible with conventional Radar technology, X-Class series mark yet another leap forward for FURUNO. Improved in almost all aspects, X-Class Radar features improved short range detection as well as an impressive long range detection of up to 96 nautical miles. And that's not all, the new "Bird Mode" gives you incredible bird detection performance.

*1 TZtouch version 4.21 or later is required.
*2 Bird mode is also available with DRS4D-NXT.

The radar detects and distinguishes several small yatchs with high accuracy.

Bird Mode*

  • Bird mode and navigation mode can both be displayed via a simultaneous dual mode scanning.
    Possibility to track the birds while navigating safely

Real-time Dual Range Radar presentation with Dual Progressive Scan

NavNet TZtouch's simultaneous scanning technology allows dual progressive scan to display and update two radar pictures, both long and short range, at the same time as opposed to alternate update methods of typical conventional dual range radar. Autonomous control over gain and anticlutter can be performed on each radar presentation.

Radar-Chart overlay

A Radar image of spot on accuracy can be overlaid onto a chart screen. Not only is it done with the conventional 2D chart format, but also it can be projected onto a 3D chart presentation. Radar range scales in the radar chart overlay entirely depend on the range scales in the chart presentation, allowing you to view the radar image on the chart information in whatever magnification level you desire. (An appropriate heading sensor is required.)

Target Tracking/AIS

Automatic radar plotting utility is one of the standard features of the NavNet TZtouch radar. Up to 30 targets can be simultaneously acquired and tracked for heading and speed. AIS target tracking is accomplished when interfaced with a FA-30/50/170 AIS unit.


Real-Time Digital Auto Gain/Sea Controls

NavNet TZtouch employs revolutionary real-time digital auto Gain/Sea controls to deliver a crystal clear radar presentation. With this new technology, NavNet TZtouch computes and applies an adaptive omni-directional anti-clutter filter with variable intensity depending on bearing.
