This article is about the second replacement Halo ring. For the original Alpha Halo, whose location this ring was deployed to, see Installation 04. For the first replacement ring built, see Installation 08.

“I've discovered [that] the Ark keeps an almost finished ring in its central forges at all times. It's an emergency replacement in case one of the other rings breaks down.”
— Professor Anders informing Captain Cutter and Isabel of the ring's existence.

Installation 09,[1] sometimes referred to as Anders' Halo, was a Halo ring, created by Installation 00 after the destruction of Installation 08. The installation was intended as a potential replacement ring, should any of the remaining Halo rings be damaged or destroyed. It was discovered by Professor Ellen Anders as she searched for a way to contact the UNSC during the Battle of Installation 00.
