JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to announce the first sea trial in Spain with the JRC bird radar JMR-5460-8S. The sea trial was done on the fishing vessel Pedro Jose Berria which is a 34 length meter vessel that mainly catches anchovy, mackerel, and bonito in the Gulf of Biscay as far as Ireland.
The JRC bird scanner utilizes a high output S-band scanner allowing for exceptional discrimination. The radar can detect a flock of just tens of birds at a low altitude near the vessel or a flock of a higher number of birds at a higher altitude at the open sea. When the sea is empty of sonar targets fishermen only have birds as the first step in setting the next fishing waypoint. Such a system is extremely useful for fishing vessels, providing better potential for a more profitable catch.
During the trial, our JMR-5460-8S radar exceeded the expectations of the customer. The radar was able to detect and track single birds in a flat sea in good conditions. After the sea trial, the owner of the vessel Pedro Jose Berria confirmed the order to Ipar-Tronic, a dealer of JRC Iberia based in Hondarribia in charge of the installation.

His experience of similar training a few years ago left a lot to be desired: tedious and dull. However, within a couple of minutes of a warm welcome at Alphatron’s headquarters in Rotterdam, he soon became convinced that he was in the right place this time around.Lees verder
