Navico releases breakthrough radar

ADVERTISEMENT

Auckland-based Navico has develop Simrad’s Halo Radar, which delivers accurate, high-definition surface mapping for navigation, weather forecasting and bird spotting, which helps fishermen find fish. It detects objects at long and short range using pulse compression technology, offers precise target definition, and has low clutter.

It is the world’s first dual-range pulse compression radar, meaning it can function as two radar systems in one – monitoring two distance ranges simultaneously with independent displays without compromising resolution, said Navico Chief Operating Officer John Scott.

“It’s the closest we’ve had to a paradigm shift in the industry in a long time,” he said.

The Halo gave off a lower amount of radio frequency emissions compared to other radars. It sells for $10,000 and Scott expects to sell up to 3,000 over the next three years.
