Hawk-Strike® Rugged Embedded Computer

Hawk-Strike® is a fully rugged, high-performance, multi-mission C5ISR solution. It boasts a rich feature set - containing computer, video, and network capabilities - in an extreme small form factor embedded package, providing an economy of capability within a superior SWaP-C optimization effort.     

Hawk-Strike is ideal for mission-critical applications featuring multiple sensors and network interfaces. It provides up to four video inputs for real-time full-motion H.264 video with low latency and KLV/CoT metadata. Hawk-Strike is a best of breed embedded system, providing mission capability and a force-multiplier capacity in a single Line Replaceable Unit. It is the ideal solution for any number of mission-critical applications including airborne ISR, persistent surveillance, law enforcement, search and rescue, as well as land and marine-based missions.

Hawk-Strike's combination of unmatched video encoding and next-generation processing provides real-time full motion video and the ability to create intelligent products for consumption and distribution, ensuring accuracy and rapid response capability by the warfighter.

Manned Aircraft Workflow

Hawk-Strike’s quad-channel full-motion video encoder auto-senses and encodes Composite, SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI video to multiple H.264 profiles. It sends standards-compliant IP streams to the varying networks, IP radios, and other endpoints such as mobile consumers, C2, and PED within the ISR architecture.

Hawk-Strike's mission video can be outputted to dual onboard displays-ports and securely stored on a removable 1TB SSD for further review and analysis.  Real-time full motion video at consumption and distribution ensures accuracy and rapid response capability by the warfighter.

Onboard exploitation is accomplished through the latest generation of powerful processor options and can include the Intel Core i7 or Xeon CPUs allowing the user to run mission maps and other mission management software.

The combination of next-generation processing and unmatched video encoding provides the ability to make critical decisions and create intelligence products for distribution over Ethernet.
