Surveillance, tracking and gunfire control specialist Chess Dynamics has announced the launch of the Hawkeye Modular Mission POD (MMP).
The Hawkeye MMP builds on the combat-proven Hawkeye Vehicle Systems for long range detection and 24-hour target observation. It is the latest electro-optical solution in the land domain from Chess Dynamics and is part of the wider high-accuracy servo-stabilised solutions portfolio.
A highly stabilised, plug-and-play solution the Hawkeye MMP is a long-range surveillance device that can track targets accurately even in challenging environmental conditions. The system is highly reconfigurable due to its modular, open architecture and a range of configurations that can be rapidly adapted to many tactical situations are easily achievable.
Future-proofed, Robust, Modular Architecture System
Designed for easy installation, the Hawkeye MMP combines a fully modular and reconfigurable system with payload options for surveillance, targeting and C-UAS scenarios. It also includes a proven, easy to use and intuitive visual interface, which presents clear images of objects of interest.
The modular, open architecture of the Hawkeye MMP solution enables rapid interchangeability for multi-role missions and provides significant cost-saving opportunities for future mission module changes and the facilitation of sensor refresh programmes.
The flexibility of using modular surveillance, targeting and C-UAS pods removes the need to hold dedicated vehicles for those specified roles. The system uses ‘a single head’ with rapid removal and rapid replacement of the quick fit Pods for mission role changes. This results in it being interchangeable between platforms, easily integrated onto many tracked or wheeled vehicles and suitable for fixed or mobile installation.
Hawkeye MMP can also be connected to a BMS to hand off and receive targets very quickly and effectively, considerably enhancing mission performance. In addition, the modular approach enables defence forces to be agile and responsive and gives a future proof system for the life of the vehicle.
“We are proud to expand our combat-proven Vehicle Systems portfolio for long range detection and 24-hour target observation with the Hawkeye MMP. It has a proven capability in meeting customers’ vehicle surveillance requirements for accuracy, full integration and interoperability, and is testament to the innovative engineering capabilities of our team.” David Tuddenham, Group Managing Director of Chess Technologies.
