The Nighthawk is a rugged, simple, and affordable UAV system that allows an operator with minimal training to conduct intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions.
Constructed of carbon fiber, a robust, yet flexible material,
Nighthawk air vehicles are stored fully assembled and ready to
launch in 6” diameter tubes attached to an assault pack. The outer
pockets of the assault pack hold a rugged laptop computer, the
ground control station, and antenna assembly, leaving the
large inner compartment of the pack for other
Waypoint navigation, touch screen controls, and automated
take off, flight, and landing modes make Nighthawk one of
the simplest UAV systems to fly. Automated modes include
waypoint navigation, rally, loiter, follow, home, and altitude hold.
Use loiter mode to circle over a target under surveillance, follow mode to have Nighthawk provide reconnaissance at a fixed distance ahead of a moving vehicle or convoy, and rally mode to collect the Nighthawk at an alternate location when home location is no longer accessible.
Operator-definable failsafe modes provide the ability to land the Nighthawk in a pre-selected location in the event of loss of communications or GPS. In addition to fully automated flight modes, the Nighthawk system offers semi-manual and manual flight modes via an industry standard game-pad as well.
