Furuno took home three Product of Excellence Awards from the National Marine Electronics Association at its 45th annual conference in Florida.

The three awards included the 2016 NMEA Technology Award for Furuno’s NXT Solid-State Doppler Radar, which comes with Target AnalyzerTM. The function instantly identifies targets approaching a vessel that are a potential threat and changes each target’s color from green to red.

Furuno also took home a Product of Excellence Award for Radar with its NXT, and a Commercial Product of Excellence Award for its FAR2117 IMO Radar.

Lifetime achievement: Furuno has won 218 NMEA awards since the competition began.
