New Radars for Fast Ferry

Irish Ferries first fast ferry, the newly built "Jonathan Swift", entered service 15th June 1999 on the Dublin-Holyhead route. The 86m (eighty six metre) Auto Express catamaran is fitted with two Nucleus2 6000 ARPA radar systems, with S and X band antenna and a Nucleus2 5000 ECDIS with "dual fuel" ENC and raster chart display capability.

The high speed scanner fitted to the vessel rotates at 40 revolutions per minute ensuring a high screen refresh rate and enhanced clarity, essential for the busy shipping lanes of the Irish Sea. An interswitch unit, combined with left and right handed Ergo Pods mounted on the navigator's chairs, allow for the quick and easy manipulation of the information on the radar and ECDIS displays.
