JQE-103 – 406MHz Satellite EPIRB

The JQE-103, a highly reliable life-saving compact float-free satellite EPIRB incorporates new advancements in technology, enhancing search and rescue within ‘the golden day’.

To comply with GMDSS regulations vessels must carry a satellite EPIRB. During critical situations the EPIRB will be released and activated, either automatically or manually. Once activated, the EPIRB will transmit vessel specific information on 406MHz that is passed, via satellite, to the RCC. This information is used to commence SAR operations and with search aircraft monitoring the 121.5MHz transmissions enables the EPIRB to be located.

The JQE-103 is a brightly-coloured, lightweight, watertight and rugged EPIRB, allowing it to be easily mounted on a bulkhead. Additionally, if a situation occurs where it is required to throw the EPIRB overboard, the hardened outer shell will remain intact after a drop onto the water surface from a maximum 20 meter height.

JUE-85 – Inmarsat-C

The JUE-85 is a highly reliable mobile satellite message communication system, having the ability to handle commercial, operational and personal messages just as easily as distress and safety communications.

The JRC JUE-85 Inmarsat system comprises a small antenna with built-in GPS, terminal (transmitter and receiver) with distress button, messaging unit and power supply unit. Unlike a typical Inmarsat C system, JRC also includes a printer as standard, offering a total solution to the shipping industry.

JRC JUE-85 Inmarsat C is a digital satellite communication system whereby anything that can be encoded into digital format, whether text, numeric data from instruments or other information in digital format can be sent and received over the system. A simple user interface allows sending and receiving messages.

The Inmarsat C system is known as a store-and-forward messaging system. When sending a ship-to-shore message, it is edited on the terminal and then transmitted in a series of data packets to an Inmarsat C land earth station (LES). The LES acts as an interface (or gateway) between the satellite and the telecommunications network on land.

The LES stores the data packets, assembles them into a single message and forwards it (hence the term store-and-forwarding) over the telecommunication network to its addressed destination.

The JUE-95SA is a small, lightweight and highly reliable terminal, recognised for its unique role in maritime safety and plays an integral part in the safety of live at sea.

JRC has developed a compact, mobile satellite communication system. The JUE-95SA Inmarsat C SSAS utilises two-way data/messaging communications anywhere in the world. New IMO requirements state two security alarm buttons must be provided. These are located discreetly on the vessel and can be activated in case of piracy or terrorist attack. It will allow covert activation which transmits an alert signal from vessel to shore, alerting the appropriate authority that the security of the vessel is under threat or has been compromised. The SSAS system will not raise the alert onboard the vessel, nor alert any other ships.

If vessels have older Inmarsat C systems onboard, you can simply install JRC’s JUE-95SA in order to comply with current SOLAS regulations.

Ship Security Alert Systems (SSAS) is a system that contributes to the IMO’s efforts to strengthen maritime security and suppress acts of terrorism and piracy against shipping. In case of attempted piracy or terrorism, the vessel’s SSAS function can be activated and appropriate law-enforcement or military forces can be alerted.

JUE-500 – FleetBroadband 500

The JUE-500 FleetBroadband FB500, the latest-generation maritime communication solution from JRC, is compactly designed, easy to install and puts high-speed connectivity right at your fingertips.

The antenna base which is located inside dome is machined from one solid piece of aluminium, making it stable and durable. JRC adapted its proven three-axis control. The antenna size is greatly reduced by using the latest technologies.

Our company’s long experience of antenna design ensured the antenna is robust and easy to install. No gyro or GPS input is required and it benefits from having no cable under the radome, which means there is no need for ‘cable unwrap’ maneuvers to free cable that has become twisted as the device moves to locate the satellite.

These and more features make the electronics and mechanical design of the JRC JUE-500 as advanced on the inside as it is on the outside.

FleetBroadband provides simultaneous access to high quality voice and high-speed data, along with email, fax and SMS messaging. A captain can download the latest weather and navigational charts. At the same time, crew can do all the things online that they normally do at home, such as sending emails, accessing social networking sites, calling friends and family – a vital resource for maintaining morale when away at sea for potentially months on end.

Based on 3G standards, FleetBroadband will provide constant, simultaneous access to voice and high-speed data, capable of supporting always-on broadband connectivity at speeds up to 432kbps and streaming IP data rate of up to 256kbps.

JAN-701B ECDIS system


The JAN-701B is a newly developed multi-functional ECDIS. It is ergonomically designed to enhance the working environment and man/machine interfaces, providing continuous position and navigational safety information.


The JRC JAN-701B offers practical radar usage with ECDIS, more than just overlaying a rough radar image. The radar image has a high resolution when interfaced with JRC radars. The radar image does not hide the priority objects of vector charts, but overlays them on the radar image. At the same time, brilliance and clutter controls of the radar images continues to be operable.


The AIS is an important key device used to indicate AIS target symbol and information on the ECDIS. These targets are very useful, as it provides the maneuvering conditions of other ships at a glance, allowing for safe and effective navigation. The name of the vessels, and bearing, range, speed, length, heading and much more AIS target specifics from other ships are received and displayed. The AIS symbols are continuously displayed on-screen without the influence of the radar characteristics. The AIS targets are never shielded by ground, rain or cloud reflections, nor are they eliminated by adjustments of anti-sea or anti-rain clutter.

Also, it is easy to active, deactivate and switch between AIS target symbols. This simply can be done with an integrated AIS filter, prioritising the targets within a dedicated area.


Multiple and wide screen viewing is possible with the new JAN-701B. You can divide the chart screen into two sections, in which the same or different charts can be displayed, in a mixture of ways. In this field of view, it provides a ‘look-ahead’ capability, especially useful in coastal areas. With the wide screen view function, an additional screen in the display area, showing a segment of the chart, allows viewing at a glance.


You can easily connect a wide range of navigation equipment to acquire more information. The ECDIS will display exactly the info you need in a clear, uncluttered format, reducing the risk of accidents. This results in a more relaxing and secure operation. Even equipment from different manufacturers can be incorporated.
