Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of another emulation product to our family of Radar Emulators. BCG has completed an emulation of the Furuno™ FAR21X7 radar – we are calling PC21X7. PC21X7 utilizes the same simulation engine as the rest of BCG’s radar simulation products, which results in a powerful training tool used to familiarize a student with the use of the FAR-21X7 or SPS-50 radar for ship navigation and collision avoidance training. The radar image incorporates realistic simulation of landmass, targets, precipitation returns, sea clutter and other effects seen on a real radar.

Some unique simulation features that are incorporated into PC21X7 are the zoom window that allows the user to zoom in and see a specific area of their radar screen in a separate window and the ability to send and receive AIS text messages in the same manner as with the real radar. The other software features include full Automated Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA), dual Electronic Bearing Lines & Variable Range Markers (EBL & VRM), video controls, multiple presentation modes, graphics capabilities, Automated Information System (AIS) functionality, and range scaling. For ARPA support, PC21X7 provides target acquisition & tracking, leading vectors & history trails, and trial maneuvers.
