TowerHawk

SDL designed and developed the TowerHawk lightweight weapons platform with active inertial stabilization. TowerHawk was developed in cooperation with the Army’s Aviation Applied Technology Directorate (AATD). Due to its small size and light weight, TowerHawk can be operated from an aircraft, a vehicle, or other tactical position. It provides overwatch, overmatch, and target ISR capability for mission battle networks.
