Solid-State with Pulse Compression Technology
Simrad Halo Radar is the world's first high performance, solid-state radar with pulse compression technology designed specifically for recreational mariners. Unlike traditional pulse radar, Halo Radar isn't reliant on a high-powered magnetron (vacuum tube) to transmit. Instead, Halo Radar uses solid-state electronics and low-power 25W pulsed, frequency-swept transmission bursts to deliver pulse radar-like range and resolution, without the associated warm-up time, power consumption, or electromagnetic emissions.

64nm Range
Halo Radar delivers a maximum range comparable to traditional 6kW pulse radar, at up to 64nm with the HALO-4 Radar's 4' open array antenna. It offers unprecedented 10M (30') minimum range, peering into that pulse-radar blind spot where once only FMCW (3G/4G) Broadband Radar could operate.

Beam Sharpening
Whether you're looking at a flock of birds or a string of channel markers, separating one radar target from another is key. Beam Sharpening with Target Separation Control provides unmatched target resolution, granting the Halo Pulse Compression Radar's 4' open array antenna the same effective target resolution as a 4' array without beam sharpening.

Dual Range Operation
With Dual Range, Halo Radar functions like two arrays in one - monitor two distance ranges simultaneously with independent displays, controls, and totally independent MARPA target tracking. Take full advantage of Halo Radar's combination of short-, mid-, and long-range performance to keep an eye on faraway weather cells, while monitoring channel markers and high speed watercraft up close. Dual Range operation is available with Simrad NSS and NSO multifunction display systems.

Target Detection
The HALO-3 Radar offers excellent target detection for its compact 3' open array. For enhanced target detection in line with tough IEC 62388 Annex D specifications, consider our larger HALO-4 Radar or HALO-6 Radar arrays.

ARPA Target Tracking
Automatically track up to 10 user-selected radar targets, displaying CPA (closest point of approach) and TCPA (time to closest point of approach). Up to 20 different targets can be tracked in Dual Range mode, with 10 targets per screen. MARPA functionality requires a heading sensor and GPS.

Advanced Signal Processing
Halo Radar employs advanced signal processing for digital azimuth and range sidelobe reduction, enhancing discrimination of small targets such as channel markers from larger adjacent targets such as ships and bridges. In addition, Directional Sea Clutter Rejection dynamically changes gain in the sweep to allow smaller targets to be seen in the leeward. Sector Blanking eliminates unwanted reflections, for less clutter on screen.

8 Usage Modes with Automatic Harbour/Offshore Selection
Harbour, Offshore, Weather, and Bird modes tune Halo Radar's advanced signal =processing to help ensure the targets you're interested in can be seen vividly - even in the toughest environmental conditions. Automatic selection of Harbour and Offshore modes configures your Halo Radar to suit your surroundings, while a 'Custom' mode enables easy manual tuning to suit any purpose or condition
High Speed Mode Halo Pulse Compression Radar provides rapid position updates, with high speed operation up to 48RPM (mode and range dependent). Simrad quality construction and Halo Radar's brushless motor with advanced helical geartrain design ensure exceptionally quiet operation, especially at 48RPM.

InstantOn™
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 power-on to fully-operational. 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.

High Reliability
Halo Radar is built to last, with its solid-state transceiver meaning no magnetron to replace, and no manual tuning required as the magnetron heats up or ages. Similarly, a solid-state brushless motor driver means no motor brushes to wear out and replace. Be confident that Halo Radar will operate at high speed in winds up to 70 knots, year after year.

Low Electromagnetic Emissions
Unlike traditional pulse radar, Halo Radar's low-power pulsed transmissions meet upcoming Low Emission standards. This makes Halo Radar safe to run in anchorages and marinas, providing enhanced radar coverage at the very start and end of each journey.

Low Power Consumption
Halo Radar uses 40W average with no wind, and no more than 200W at maximum wind velocity. Experience even greater power savings in standby with just 7W power usage, versus 10/15W for pulse radar. With its low power consumption and support for 12/24 volt DC systems, Halo Radar is ideal for small to mid-sized powerboats.

Ethernet Connectivity
Simrad Halo Pulse Compression Radar connects to any Simrad NSS or NSO multifunction display system via Ethernet, with a bulkhead-mounted interface box below deck. Antenna installation is simple and elegant, with the same thin cable and small-diameter connectors as our 3G/4G Broadband radars.

Uncompromising Aesthetics
Bringing the range and reliability of Halo Pulse Compression Radar to your boat doesn't mean compromising on aesthetics. Halo Radar's sleek open-array antenna sits atop a uniquely curved pedestal, a departure from traditional boxy and utilitarian radar designs. Display your Halo Radar on the water with soft-glow, dual-beam Blue LED accent lighting, integrated into the pedestal and customizable with 4-level brightness control.

*Halo™ Pulse Compression Radar's blue 4 level static accent pedestal lighting may not be approved for use in your boating location. Please check your local boating regulations before turning the blue accent lights ON.

An Unassuming Aquatic Weed Could Be the Answer to Contaminant Removal

The most elegant solutions to even the most knotty problems are often those devised by nature. An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Upper Big Sioux River Watershed Project (UBS) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) have been developing one of nature's solutions into a workable remover of contaminants such as nitrates, nitrites, phosphorus, and even heavy metals from slow-moving waters such as lakes and ponds: a small, unassuming aquatic plant called duckweed. Roger Foote, project coordinator of UBS, describes how the team decided to explore what duckweed might be capable of after his efforts to use algae to remove phosphorus from water were thwarted unexpectedly.

White River Monitoring Backs Work to Boost River’s Civic Profile

The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.

Baking in the Sun: How Groundwater Recharge is Likely to Change as the Climate Does

Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.
