NightHawk II     SWIR

NightHawk II provides affordable nighttime, wide area surveillance capability with persistent coverage of areas as large as 4 square kilometers.
  • Capability for 100% duty cycle across entire illumination spectrum

  • High sensitivity in 0.9 to 1.7um spectrum; NIR/SWIR, from 0.7 to 1.7um

  • Partial moonlight to day time imaging

  • All solid-state InGaAs imager

  • On-board, real-time non-uniformity corrections

  • Automatic Gain Control (AGC)

  • Operation from -40 to +70 degrees C

  • Tested to MIL-STD-810G fro functional shock, vibration, thermal shock, storage temperature, altitude, humidity

​The NightHawk II Wide Area Surveillance system integrates seemlessly with all HawkEye II components including Image Processor, Data Links, Image Presentation and Storage Server, and iView.


In its base form, NightHawk II provides coverage of 2 X 2 km with ground resolution of 1/2 meter thouhgout the image.


Images are processed in real-time with image stiching, geo and ortho rectification, and preparation for data communications transport to analysts on the ground.

The NightHawk / HawkEye family of  sensors bring a 24 hour monitoring capabilty to Wide Area Surveillance.


Analysts can easily switch from one sensor to another using the same tools and techniques.

NightHawk II
Multi-Spectral Capability

NightHawk II can be configured as a multi-spectral imager.   Users can opt for a system configured with EO, SWIR, and NIR capabilities.

SWIR Sensor

You'd be surprised.  Like HawkEye II, the base unit is competitively priced with camera balls.


What's better, is the base unit can be upgraded over time with out having to replace the entire unit.  That's great engineering!
