UK MOD TAKES HALO MARK 2 INTO SERVICE WITH THE BRITISH ARMY

HALO Mark 2, BAE SYSTEMS new advanced Hostile Artillery Location system, has been taken into service by the Ministry of Defence as part of the British Army’s Advanced Sound ranging Programme (ASP) capability. This follows the completion of an intensive programme of trials conducted by the MOD.

HALO detects and pinpoints the position of enemy guns, in both urban and mountainous environments. HALO Mark 2 is more accurate than the earlier version which has been extensively and successfully used by the British Army in Balkans operations. Many years of privately funded research by BAE SYSTEMS into acoustic location systems has now enabled the company to develop this service-proven system still further.

The incremental nature of HALO as part of the solution to the ASP requirement will ensure that the British Army continues to deploy the world’s most advanced and rugged artillery location system, which has been rigorously tested in a variety of terrains and environmental conditions around the world.

Key benefits of the new HALO Mark 2 are its high levels of availability, passive operation and accuracy in both urban and mountainous terrain. Advanced sensors and innovative computing processes have been combined with open systems architecture to provide the potential for further cost-effective enhancements in the future. The BAE SYSTEMS solution also includes training and equipment support.
