Simrad Announces New HALO20+, HALO20

Offering boaters the ultimate picture from our smallest dome yet.

NEW HALO Dome Radars
Egersund, Norway – Announcing the launch of SIMRAD® HALO20+ and HALO20 Radars, a pair of compact, pulse compression radar units, perfectly designed for smaller sportfishing and cruising vessels.
“We are excited to extend the reach of our revolutionary HALO Radar technology to smaller sportfishing and cruising boats,” said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico Group. “At their core, HALO20+ and HALO20 Radars make navigation safer and easier, but have distinct feature sets that cater to both the boater that craves top-end features, and those looking for high-performance radar at a more affordable price.



Already available in a 24-inch dome, the new SIMRAD® HALO20+ radar is our smallest Pulse Compression Dome Radar yet. The new 20-inch dome packs in the same great features so there is no need to compromise. Delivering a full 360-degree sweep every second, at ranges up to 1.5 nautical miles, these ultra-fast updates give boaters an almost real-time view at close range, offering the ultimate view for collision avoidance of stationary and fast-moving targets.

Ideal for a wide range of coastal bay boats, HALO20+ comes in a compact dome antenna and delivers high-quality short, mid and long-range detection (up to 36 nautical miles). Boaters can monitor two distance ranges at once in Dual Range mode allowing them to keep an eye on distant weather cells, while watching for collision hazards nearby. HALO20+ radar’s pulse compression technology means no compromises in detection at either selected range, while beam sharpening provides enhanced separation between small or distant targets.

With SIMRAD® HALO20+, boaters can identify hazards quickly with VelocityTrack™ Doppler technology, which delivers instant feedback on whether targets are coming towards you or moving away. Simple colour coding highlights potential hazards, improving situational awareness and further reducing the risk of a collision. HALO20+ Radar automatically checks every target in range, so there’s no need to manually select individual targets, and no limit to the number of targets on screen at one time.

The new SIMRAD® HALO20 Radar model is a cost-effective solution for boaters to increase situational awareness and collision avoidance. Detecting collision hazards and other targets nearby and up to 24 nautical miles away. With its small footprint and low profile, HALO20 is the perfect radar solution for budget-conscious boaters with small sportfishing vessels and dayboats.

HALO20 also delivers a comprehensive range of features to enhance your situational awareness and on-water safety. Boaters can monitor selected collision hazards with MARPA target tracking, tracking up to 10 targets. Whether navigating through crowded waterways or contending with poor visibility, HALO20 Radar cuts through the clutter to give boaters a clear and current picture of their surroundings.

Both SIMRAD® HALO20+ and HALO20 radars offer MARPA Target Tracking, InstantOn™ technology and Harbour, Offshore and Weather modes that tune the radar’s advanced signal processing to help ensure that targets can be seen vividly – even in the toughest environmental conditions.
