BAE Systems Hawk
The BAE Systems Hawk is an Advanced Jet Trainer available in a multitude of configurations, ranging from pure training aircraft to the single-seat fighter/ground attack Mk200-series. Over 900 Hawk aircraft have been delivered to air forces around the world.
Harmolign boresight/harmonization solutions have been adapted to a total of 8 marks of the Hawk, and is or will shortly be in operational use with 7 air forces around the globe – the oldest system since 2006. The Hawk family of aircraft has clearly demonstrated the adaptability of the Harmolign technology – adapting to new marks has been unproblematic, and many of the systems handle multiple marks of Hawk. In the latest example, a customer replacing older aircraft with a brand new current-specification AJT version just needed a simple software modification to support the new aircraft as well.
From desert heat to northern rain and ice, the Hawk users have proven the laboratory-tested reliability and ruggedness of the Harmolign systems in real life – without a single pattern failure since the original delivery.
