NavNet 3D MFD12 with TimeZero ©



Overview
NavNet 3D utilises Ethernet, NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 to network the chart plotter, radar sensor, fish finder, AIS, autopilot and many other onboard components to build up an integrated onboard navigation system. This onboard networking and data sharing is quite commonplace for current onboard navigation systems available globally. However, one has to be aware that the core components of NavNet 3D, the chart plotter, radar and fish finder, are fully loaded with a variety of groundbreaking, new features, including TimeZero™ technology and UHD™ and FDF™ advanced digital signal processing. These new features will make one instantly grasp how completely unique this innovative system is compared to the competition.

TimeZero™ Technology
Working in perfect harmony with its native 3D chart environment, the NavNet 3D’s high-speed processor delivers TimeZero™ technology*. This enables instant, real-seamless chart redraw and chart handling with no waiting. The chart can be zoomed seamlessly and continuously in and out to whatever chart scale desired (TimeZero™ Zoom), instead of limiting the chart scaling options of conventional chart plotters. The chart can be smoothly panned to allow observation, with greater intensity, the area away from own vessel such as area ahead, destination and other points of navigational interest (TimeZero™ Scroll). TimeZero™ technology redefines the meaning of stress-free operation by smoothing out all the chart handling actions, and it is available in any chart presentation options, including 2D/3D chart, Satellite PhotoFusion™ chart, bathymetric chart, and even in NavNet 3D radar-chart overlay.
*TimeZero™ technology is designed and developed by MaxSea International.

NavNet 3D Chart Plotter
The NavNet 3D chart plotter utilises the leading 3D Mapmedia charting architecture to bring a full time 3-dimensional presentation, unlike conventional chart plotters that utilise 2D charts that require special effects to appear 3D. On top of the 3D chart presentation, the NavNet 3D’s powerful graphic engine has delivered the Satellite PhotoFusion™, total fusion of high-resolution satellite imagery and critical raster or vector chart data. In this presentation option, land areas (zero depth) are shown with completely opaque, high-resolution satellite photos.

NavNet 3D Digital Sensors
Another striking feature of NavNet 3D is its use of new FURUNO Digital Sensors. NavNet 3D integrates highly sensitive Ultra High Definition (UHD™) digital radar and FURUNO Digital Filter (FDF™) fish finder.

UHD™ digital radar delivers crystal clear, noise-free target presentation with automatic real-time digital auto controls. The NavNet 3D’s dual progressive scan transmission drives powerful real-time dual-range radar. Each radar presentation acts autonomously, allowing for manipulation of individual gain and clutter controls. Commercial-grade radar performance is now available in the ultimate Multi-Function Display navigation suite. The NavNet 3D radar sensor incorporates an NMEA 2000 port to which NMEA 2000 sensors can be directly connected. Power for these networked NMEA 2000 sensors is supplied from the radar sensor. NMEA 2000 data can be converted and distributed through the Ethernet network.

FURUNO Digital Filter (FDF™) technology is featured in FURUNO’s DFF1, the new digital Network Sounder. It can turn any NavNet display into a powerful, dual frequency digital fish finder. Surface clutter, mainly caused by your craft’s propeller can be greatly suppressed by the digital filter, resulting in exceptional shallow water detection. This makes it easier to spot fish targets that are close to surface. This digital filter also optimizes gain to obtain highly defined images of underwater conditions to show fish targets close to the seabed. The digital filter also eliminates noise to deliver sharp and detailed echo presentation, achieving detection of fishing reefs and individual fish with absolute clarity.

TimeZero


NavNet 3D uses a new cutting-edge technology called “TimeZero®”. It facilitates seamless chart redraw, allowing zooming, chart panning, changing chart display modes and other chart handling functions without limited range presets. TimeZero® brings you a truly seamless navigation environment you have to see to believe. For the ultimate in flexibility and the fastest NavNet 3D redraw, look to the Black Box series (MFDBB), which features asuper-charged graphics processor.

TimeZero® is a registered trademark of MaxSea International S.A.S.


NavNet 3D incorporates a whole new dimension into chart presentation with full time 3D chart rendering. You can choose a 2D top-down view of the navigation chart for a look and feel that duplicates a traditional chart plotting presentation. Or, you can choose to pan and zoom the chart to any angle at any range scale you choose instantly. There is no “3D mode” to change into and no waiting, because NavNet 3D operates in the true 3D environment full time. Plus it is pre-loaded with full-scale, complete NOAA raster and vector chart libraries for the entire U.S. coastline, including Alaska and Hawaii! To top it off, you can combine them with new Satellite PhotoFusion™ charts. This variety of chart presentations helps to improve your situational awareness by giving you unprecedented control over your charting environment.
