In the past, skippers could choose a long-range pulse radar with power-sucking magnetrons that required minutes of warm-up time. Or they could get a solid-state, instantly on, digital radar, dubbed “Broadband Radar” by Simrad, with excellent short-range target definitions.

Thanks to Simrad’s new Halo series, there’s no longer a need to compromise. This open-array system offers spectacular target detail ranging from 20 feet to 72 nautical miles.

Halo uses pulse compression, a term describing its ability to transmit concentrated bursts of energy at long distances or define targets at close range.

Perhaps most remarkable is its ability to offer both views from the same array, on split screens or multiple displays. In addition, each view can be controlled and adjusted separately.

Adjustments are as simple or complex as you prefer. Use the automatic Harbor, Offshore, Weather and Bird modes or create custom settings to see targets your way. The radar uses only 6 watts of power and is warmed up in less than 30 seconds. Magnetron free, it is also radiation safe to all.

It’s compatible with Simrad’s NSS Evo or NSO Evo displays. Radars come in 3-, 4- and 6-foot arrays ($4,500, $5,000 and $5,500, respectively). Its brushless motor drive with helical gears is silent and durable. The sculpted base is blinged up with dimmable, internal, blue LED lighting.
