HALO-1kt is a supernova neutrino observatory which would leverage 1000 tonnes of lead from the decommissioned OPERA experiment to create a low cost and low maintenance neutrino detector. It is to be sited at LNGS, and is intended to operate as a scaled up version of the original HALO. Due to its sensitivity to $\nu_e$, it is complementary to water Cherenkov and liquid scintillator-based detectors. Design is currently in progress.
