Simrad has unveiled its new Halo radar — the world’s first recreational solid-state open-array radar with pulse-compression technology — the company says. HALO combines the advantages of Simrad’s original broadband radar with traditional pulse-radar systems to offer visibility and awareness as close as 20 feet, within pulse-radar’s typical short-range blind spot, while offering long-range performance up to 72 nautical miles (depending on the array size). HALO comes with beam-sharpening and dual-range technology; it produces an image instantly from standby and in 16 to 25 seconds after powering up. Solid-state technology means compliance with low-emission standards. Available as a 3-, 4- or 6-foot array, HALO costs $4,500 to $5,500.
