Meet JRC | Alphatron Marine at SMM 2022

Press releases

After a period of restrictions due to Covid-19 and cancellation of many exhibitions, JRC | Alphatron Marine is once again proud to present her leading products, innovations and solutions at SMM, one of the world’s largest exhibitions. At the 30th edition of this exhibition we will show a total package with professional deepsea and inland equipment, demonstrate our new modular consoles and introduce the new AlphaRiverPilot MFS.

At SMM we will present our latest innovation with regards to system integration, our modular console. This modular console is a unique and new bridge console concept, which is fully functional and invites you to try it out. The main components of the console are made of lightweight aluminium. The top cover, hatches and optional sides are made of recycled ABS, primarily to save weight, but an additional benefit is that it is a sustainable product and therefore environmentally friendly. Also, the delivery time is significantly reduced because we have all parts in stock. In addition to familiar components, the bridge will include several new features. Two complete MFD systems and the AlphaMINDS/Conning & Docking application will be shown on three 46" AlphaScreens. Our new autopilot AlphaPilot MFM is also included as well as our joystick system DynaPilot, a motion control system that allows the helmsmen to move the whole ship in any desired direction with only one joystick.

JRC | Alphatron Marine will showcase our new river autopilot, the AlphaRiverPilot MFS with optional trackpilot capabilities. This is the successor to the AlphaPilot MF that has been used by our customers on a huge number of inland vessels for many years. The AlphaRiverPilot MFS will be obtainable in two different versions, a desk mount and a flush mount version. The new control units have the same dimensions as our existing MFS repeater line and are equipped with a 5-inch color touch screen, providing a great and simple user experience. The new AlphaRiverPilot MFS is easy to install and also very accessible for updates. In addition, this river pilot can be linked to multiple devices, for example the AlphaRiverTrackPilot and compass.

On the show we also have the JMR-611 river radar, the next generation in sensor technology. This radar characterizes itself by an excellent suppression of unwanted reflections from waves on wide water. In addition, this radar uses an aerodynamic scanner and an associated modified motor. This makes this radar extremely suitable for the most extreme weather conditions. The JMR-611 is the first river radar with an extreme low reflection on the monitor, according to the new regulations. With our JMR-611 river radar you are prepared for the future.

We also present the JMR-5400 radar for CAT1 and CAT2 vessels, a high performance sensor technology. This radar significantly improves short range detection and target discrimination on high-brightness displays with intuitive icon-based operation. The system runs on the latest signal processing technology designed by JRC, allowing radar images to effortlessly run faster and more efficiently than ever before. With this fully in-house developed radar, we can guarantee a clear radar image with clear targets even during rain and rough sea. By adding the proprietary optimization technology to the automatic clutter removal function, image discrimination at close range has reached a whole new level.

We would like to invite you to visit our stand. On Wednesday 7 th September at 16.00 hrs you are invited to join us for a drink and learn more about what we have to offer.
