B&G’s HALO series of radars now includes the HALO20+ and the HALO20, a pair of compact radomes expressly designed for use aboard smaller sailboats. The units measure 20in in diameter and weigh a mere 11lb. The HALO20+, in particular, delivers a full 360-degree sweep every second, thanks to a 60 rpm rotation speed at ranges up to 1.5 nautical miles. These ultra-fast updates give sailors an almost real-time view at close range, offering the ultimate in collision avoidance of fast-moving targets. Other features include a “Dual Range” mode for keeping an eye on distant weather cells while also watching for nearby hazards, and what B&G calls its “VelocityTrack” doppler technology, which delivers instant feedback on whether a target is coming toward you or moving away.
