Egersund, Norway – Simrad Yachting has been awarded a 2023 Top Product Award by Boating Industry Magazine for its new HALO® 2000 and 3000 Radars. Selected by the editorial staff at Boating Industry, the Top Product Awards recognize innovative products that have been recently introduced or significantly upgraded since January 1, 2022. Winners are featured in the May 2023 issue.
“We are proud to have our new HALO open array radar recognized as a 2023 Top Product” said Kevin Steinbraker, VP and General Manager, Digital Systems for Navico Group. “Our team was dedicated to developing the best radar on the market for target detection, resolution, system reliability and ease of use for boaters of all types. Receiving this award from Boating Industry Magazine’s team of experts affirms all the hard work that was put in and shines a light on this exceptional product.”
Announced in October, the HALO 2000 and 3000 Radars feature higher power pulse compression and improved detection ranges to offer the most powerful Simrad® HALO radars on the market. Other key integrations like Bird+ Mode, available on the HALO 3000 only; ZoneTrack™, and support for Dangerous Target Alerts provide users even more technical and safety benefits. HALO 2000 comes with 50 watts of power, ensuring visibility out to 72 nautical miles, while HALO 3000, with 130 watts of power, provides visibility out to 96 nautical miles. That power is combined with world class beam sharpening for enhanced target separation that is unmatched in the marketplace.
Other technical upgrades include award-winning modes, situational awareness enhancements and ZoneTrack merged into Simrad’s decades of expertise and experience in radar. On the Halo 3000, the new Bird+ Mode activates the radar to solely focus on maximizing 130 watts of power on targeting and identifying flocks of birds at ranges of up to eight nautical miles.
This is the third award the Simrad HALO open array radar has received since its launch. Earlier this year it was awarded a 2023 Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show Innovation Award, as well as a Bonnier 2023 Best Marine Electronics Award.
