FICE-100 ice detection radar is connected to standard Furuno FAR-2xx7 or FAR-3000 X-band navigation radar.
The FICE-100 removes the image noise making the fine structures of the ice more visible. Hybrid ice radar captures the raw radar signal from the ARPA processor.
The result is a stable image that includes the fine details found in the radar echoes.
By using ice radar vessels can find the old rifts, clean ice and channels made by icebreakers and other vessels. Finding and using these, the vessel consumes much less power and saves fuel and time!
Infrared cameras are challenging to maintain in icy conditions. Ice radar is a supplementary system for navigation radar to observe ice conditions using the same outdoor equipment.
