SLX-SuperHawk is a Medium Wave Infra-Red (MWIR) thermal imaging camera employing the latest focal plane array technology to meet long-range surveillance and target identification requirements. It provides a wider Field of View (FoV) for greater Situational Awareness, whilst delivering a narrower IFoV for longer range target identification and engagement.

It is available in two variants both incorporating a high definition (HD) 1280×1024 resolution focal plane array detector.

SLX-Superhawk S

SLX-SuperHawk S incorporates an integrated detector
cooler assembly (IDCA) providing a compact high
performance capability.

SLX-Superhawk L

SLX-SuperHawk incorporates a 40,000 hour long life split linear cooler offering the same high performance but with extended maintenance free operation and low
cost of ownership.
