Especially, it is required to develop navigation navigation equipment that can prevent collision or stranding accident in case of watch failure due to agricultural work, etc.

Radar beacons are used as navigation navigation equipment. Generally, a radar beacon emits a response radio wave automatically when a radio wave radiated from a radar mounted on a ship or the like arrives. Then, the response propagating from the radar beacon is displayed as a Morse signal as a bright line spectrum on the radar screen of the ship.

Generally, there are 5 ~ 6 types of widely used radar beacons. The radar beacons are requested to purchase by designating a firing code when requesting an order, or some makers adjust Morse code and firing cycle through a separate radar beacon controller, There is a problem that it can not be applied to other manufacturers' products. Conventionally, there is an inconvenience that a method of confirming whether the radar beacon is operated by activating the radar of the ship to confirm whether or not the radar beacon is normally operating is used.
