Remote, Retractable Spike Strip With NightHawk®
When your mission is to immobilize a wide range of vehicles, NightHawk provides a safe, cost-effective, reliable and proven option. Our remote spike strip is portable, lightweight and safely keeps officers out of harms way.
How NightHawk Works
The NightHawk® enables law enforcement officers to launch and retract spike strips using a wireless hand-held remote control, up to 100 feet away from the “danger zone”. NightHawk utilizes a gas generator cartridge similar to the ones used in automotive safety restraint systems. The gas generator cartridge is contained in the launch tube assembly that propels a weighted sack (called a Drogue) across the roadway. As the Drogue is launched, it pulls a Nylon sleeve containing 10 “STOP STICKs® each Stop Stick is 15” in length, onto the roadway and the path of an oncoming target vehicle. The deployment action is accomplished in less than two seconds. After the suspect vehicle has passed, the hand-held remote button is activated, causing a small electrically powered winch to pull the spike strip out of the roadway, in less than two seconds*.
Nighthawk offers law enforcement or other agencies the ability to remotely deploy and retract spike strips, providing additional security and safety. The Nighthawk provides the ability for an officer to retreat to a safe distance and remotely launch the spike strip across the roadway to engage the target vehicle while also providing the ability to remotely retract the spike strip to ensure the pursuing vehicle will pass safely.
Where PacSci EMC NightHawk Can Be Found
NightHawk is currently being used by law enforcement agencies across the country, from Police to Sheriff departments. The spike strips in the NightHawk device are a standard Law Enforcement issued product that have been tried and tested in the field for over 20 years. These spike strips have been proven to be a successful tool during Law Enforcement pursuits and very effective in deflating tires of target vehicles.
