Simrad Yachting, a member of the Navico family, has introduced SIMRAD HALO20+ and HALO20 Radars, a pair of compact, pulse compression radar units, designed for smaller sport-fishing and cruising vessels.

Already available in a 24-inch dome, the new HALO20+ radar is its smallest Pulse Compression Dome Radar yet, said the global manufacturer of Marine Chartplotters, Autopilots & Entertainment for sports fishing boats, motor boats & luxury cruisers.

The new 20-inch dome packs in the same features. Delivering a full 360-degree sweep every second, at ranges up to 1.5 nautical miles, these updates give boaters an almost real-time view at close range, offering the ultimate view for collision avoidance of stationary and fast-moving targets.

“We are excited to extend the reach of our revolutionary HALO Radar technology to smaller sport-fishing 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.

Ideal for a wide range of coastal bay boats, HALO20+ comes in a compact dome antenna and delivers 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.
