LockheedLogoNorthrop Grumman has unveiled an upgrade to its high-resolution sensors for the hawk air defense missile system, according to a company statement.

The fourth generation tracking adjunct sensor helps the Hawk in spotting and tracking low targets even in low light conditions through a charged-coupled camera.

“We continue to invest in sensors for the Hawk and will support our customers worldwide with these upgrades to help them maintain their national security,” said Jim Mocarski, vice president of airborne tactical sensors at Northrop Grumman.

This latest upgrade to the company's electro-optical/infrared sensors is meant to detect threats beyond visual range and provide real-time situational data.

4G TAS comes with a 640 x 480 pixel infrared sensor, twice as high as the current resolution.

Northrop said current TAS, improved TAS and advanced infrared TAS systems can scale up to the 4G TAS configuration.
