RELEASE DATE: December 2016
We are pleased to announce new software for the Halo radar pedestal. The new version is 5.3.14 and supersedes 5.2.18. This software release contains improvements for MARPA functionality.
HALO™ Radar Improvements
- Stability of target vectors has been greatly improved
- Target acquisition and retention has been improved especially around target swapping when two vessels pass close together
- Better target retention of vessels with wakes
RI-12 Software update maybe required
Some users have reported connectivity issues when using a HALO™ radar, resulting in the radar going into STBY or going offline and displaying “No Scanner” or “No Radar” messages on the multifunction display.
The software for both the RI-12 and Halo™ Radar must be upgraded as the new Halo software is not compatible with older versions of RI-12 software.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THE RI-12 HAS THE LATEST SOFTWARE BEFORE UPGRADING THE HALO PEDESTAL.
