JRC Delivers 15,000th Tornado Radar

Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC) delivered its 15,000th Tornado radar from the Mitaka factory in Tokyo, Japan. Found in the JMA-5200 through to the JMA-9100 series, this new capability allowed the radars to perform the complex tasks associated with the company’s other in-house developed technologies, Constaview and Target Enhancement Function (TEF).
JRC’s Constaview allows full processing of data within milliseconds, generating a smooth and continuous (radar) image rotation. TEF allows target enhancement relative to the target size, resulting in a proportional enhancement where the relative enhancement of smaller targets is greater than applied to larger targets.
Since the first JMA-5300 Tornado radar was shipped in 2004, JRC has delivered an average of six per day to reach this 15,000 milestone.
