Simrad Halo Radar

See Near and Far, Simultaneously

Halo™ radar delivers an unprecedented mix of short and long range performance with its 4-foot open array, from just six metres (20 feet) to as far as 64 nautical miles. Monitor two distance ranges simultaneously in Dual Range mode, and take full advantage of Halo radar to keep an eye on faraway weather cells while monitoring channel markers and high speed watercraft up close. Pulse Compression technology means no compromises in detection at either range. Advanced digital signal processing helps to eliminate sea clutter, while Beam Sharpening technology provides enhanced separation between small or distant targets.

Safety, Weather, and Bird-Finder Radar

Halo radar delivers a comprehensive range of features to enhance your situational awareness and on-water safety. Monitor selected collision hazards with MARPA target tracking, or automatically highlight all approaching targets with the optional VelocityTrack™ Doppler motion-tracking upgrade. Keep watch on distant storm cells in Weather mode, your own real-time meteorological service. Halo radar also works as a powerful bird-finder, a must-have tool for sportfishing enthusiasts and pro anglers. Halo radar’s smart Weather and Bird modes require no manual tuning, just set the mode and go.

Ready in an Instant

Collision hazards won’t wait for your radar to start up – why should you? Halo radar’s solid-state technology is ready instantly from standby, and in just 16-25 seconds from a cold start. Avoid the 2-3 minute warm-up time associated with traditional pulse radar and trust Halo Radar to produce an immediate, accurate radar image when you need it. Halo radar’s low-power pulsed transmissions make it safe to run in anchorages and marinas, providing additional coverage in these high-collision-risk environments. Fast 48 RPM operation provides frequent position updates, while an advanced brushless motor and helical geartrain ensure quiet operation.

  • Optional VelocityTrack™ Doppler upgrade for collision avoidance

Simrad Broadband 4G™ Radar

See Near and Far

Broadband 4G™ radar relies on solid-state FMCW technology to detect targets from right off the bow out to 36 nautical miles away. See clearly at close range, where traditional radar systems can be blind to imminent collision hazards. Monitor two different range scales simultaneously in dual-range mode, and keep watch on nearby vessels while also keeping an eye on distant weather cells or landmarks. Beam Sharpening technology enhances target separation, giving you the sharpest images possible, while Harbour and Offshore modes optimise the radar image for ultimate clarity with no manual tuning required.

Designed for Situational Awareness

Great short-range performance makes Broadband 4G radar fantastic for tight manoeuvres in marinas, and for safe navigation in limited visibility such as darkness or fog. High-speed 48 RPM operation is available at ranges less than one nautical mile, delivering ultra-fast updates to maximise safety at times of high collision risk. MARPA target tracking lets you monitor up to ten selected radar targets (20 in dual-range mode), while dual guard zones automatically alert you of nearby hazards.

Perfect for Vessels of All Sizes

Low power consumption makes Broadband 4G radar ideal for boats of any size and type. InstantOn™ capability means no warm-up time from standby, giving you an immediate radar image when you need it without having to keep the system running when you don’t. A closed dome design and zero radiation hazard—with lower energy emissions than a mobile phone—make the system safe to mount almost anywhere on board. Installation is quick and easy, with no reason to open the dome and no radar-licensed technician required.

Key features

  • 0-36 NM range from one compact dome
  • Beam Sharpening for enhanced target separation
  • Simultaneous Dual Range operation
  • High speed mode (48 RPM at ranges less than 1 NM)
  • Ready instantly from standby
  • MARPA target tracking (up to 10 targets, 20 in dual range)
  • Low power consumption
  • Zero radiation hazard
  • Quick and easy installation
