H5000 Pilot vendee h5.png The IMOCA 60s rely on the expertise of the H5000 Pilot, steering reliably day and night and in everything from flat calms to Southern Ocean storms.
HALO20+ Radar halo24@crop.png The HALO20+ Pulse-compression radar allows the skippers to see through fog, rain and driving spray. In remote waters it can be set to 'sweep and sleep' and perform a 360 degree sweep every 10 minutes or so, alerting skippers to hazards while saving power.
WS700 Wind Sensor ws700_head_crop.png The WS700 Vertical Wind Sensor delivers the most accurate wind data possible to the boat's autopilot and instruments.
WTP3 WTP3-Base_1980.png The WTP3 and associated modules along with motion sensor and barometric pressure sensor are installed close to the nav station. The WTP3 is the heart of the system – it provides the best sailing data available, stabilised to remove the effects of boat movement, ensuring the autopilot can steer to its full potential.
