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-2000. 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.
