From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Imber was a planet in the Salisbury system governed by the Unified Earth Government, located among the Inner Colonies.
Late in the Human-Covenant War in 2551, the Covenant attacked Imber and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers were deployed to defend it. During the battle, Spartan-II Kelly-087 was deployed to Imber as part of Operation: DEVIL FREEDOM, assisting with the evacuation of civilians from the planet and the targeting of Covenant landing craft for orbital bombardment. During the battle, Staff Sergeant Malcolm Geffen, Corporal Vasily Beloi, and Emanuel Barakat hijacked a Spirit to exfiltrate from the planet, later leaving the dropship on Criterion in the Taurus system.
Despite the efforts of the United Nations Space Command, Imber was glassed by the Covenant.

The colony was likely named after a village of the same name in the United Kingdom, used by the British Army as a training ground.
