Simrad: watch from far and near

The radar allows you to navigate safely in crowded waters or low visibility conditions, keeping an eye out for distant storm cells and even detecting flocks of birds that indicate the best spots to fish. That’s why Simrad‘s revolutionary HALO20 and HALO20 pulse compression dome radars, specially designed for small sport fishing and cruising boats offer 360-degree close-range scanning every second to best avoid collisions with stationary or fast-moving targets.

With excellent target detection at short, medium and long distances, these dome antennas are full-featured and provide a crisp view of targets even in the harshest environmental conditions.

Both the HALO20 radar and HALO20 make the easier and safer navigation, but each has distinct features that meet the needs of both those who want high-end features and those who are looking for a high-performance radar at a more affordable price.”


Already available in a 24-inch dome version, the new SIMRAD® HALO20 radar is the smallest pulse compression radome ever. The new 20-inch dome packs come with the same outstanding features, so you don’t have to compromise. With a full 360-degree scan every second at distances up to 1.5 nautical miles, these ultra-fast updates give boaters a near real-time view at close range, providing the best image to avoid collisions with stationary and fast-moving targets.

Take advantage of dual range mode

Ideal for a wide range of small vessels sailing along the coast, HALO20 comes with acompact radome antenna capable of providing high-quality short, medium and long-range detection. Mariners can monitor two distances at the same time in the Dual Range mode to keep an eye on storm cells in the distance and monitor close collision hazards.

The pulse compression technology of the HALO20 radar is perfect for target detection at any selected distance, and beam narrowing provides better separation between distant or small targets.

With SIMRAD® HALO20 , boaters can quickly identify hazards with integrated VelocityTrack™ Doppler technology, which provides immediate feedback on approaching or receding targets. Simple color coding highlights potential hazards and risks for enhanced situational awareness and to further reduce the risk of collision.

The HALO20 radar automatically monitors every target within its range, without having to manually select individual targets and without any restriction on the number of targets that can be simultaneously displayed on the screen.

The new model of SIMRAD® HALO20 radar provides a cost-effective solution for those who want to increase awareness when navigating and thus avoid hazards by detecting collision hazards and other targets nearby and up to a maximum distance of 24 nautical miles. With its small footprint and low-profile design, HALO20 is the perfect radar solution for those with a limited budget and a small recreational or sport fishing boat.

Detects up to 10 targets

The HALO20 radar also offers a full range of functions to improve knowledge of the surrounding environment and safety at sea. Sailors can monitor selected collision hazards with MARPA target detection (up to 10 targets). Whether navigating in busy waters or in low visibility conditions, the HALO20 radar eliminates noise to provide a sharp and up-to-date image of the surrounding environment.

Both SIMRAD® HALO20 and HALO20 radars offer MARPA target detection, InstantOn™ technology, and Port, Open Sea, and Weather modes, which fine-tune advanced radar signal processing to ensure that targets are clearly visible, even in the harshest environmental conditions.

Turn your display into a fishfinder

You can choose from a wide range of fishfinding sonar options to fit your boat, from CHIRP transducers or traditional sonar for classic fishfinding visualization or combine all fishfinding sonars into one transducer with Active Imaging™ 3-in-1. Active Imaging provides the maximum clarity and target separation of a CHIRP sonar, as well as incredible detail of coral reefs, sheer walls, and wrecks from SideScan and DownScan Imaging™.

Active Imaging

With the 3-in-1 Active Imaging™ sonar featuring CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan technology with FishReveal™ functionality, fishermen can visualize structure and covered area with a new level of detail accuracy, within a range never before achieved by other structure imaging technologies. The high sharpness, target separation, and detail accuracy offered by Active Imaging allow more fish to be detected by easier and faster identification of structures containing schools of fish, such as piles of boulders or rocks, vertical logs, beds of algae or weeds, pits, and submerged reefs, all at a greater distance from the boat. Anglers can get the best of CHIRP and DownScan sonar technology in one screen with the unique FishReveal™ intelligent target display, which allows fish to be clearly distinguished from structure and area covered on highly detailed DownScan images.

HDI Skimmer® transducer locates fish and detects depth

A transom-mounted HDI Skimmer® transducer provides fish-finding sonar to recreational anglers and power boaters offers an easy way to keep an eye on depth. CHIRP technology enables clear detection of fish in the water column, while DownScan Imaging™ sonar creates a photo-like visualization of the structures where fish are stationed under the boat. FishReveal™ technology combines these two specialized views into a single crystal-clear image of fish and structure.

TotalScan™ transducers

Add the TotalScan transducer to the XSE GO system and get all your sonar technology in one package. TotalScan matches demonstrated Broadband Sounder ™ and CHIRP sonar with SideScan and DownScan Imaging ™ technology, which enables fish-addressing and fish-holding structure searching with the same transducer.
