The NightHawk® is a lightweight, portable vehicle arresting system deploys spike strips faster and safer than hand-thrown systems. The NightHawk is remote tire deflation device which remotely deploys and retracts stop stick vehicle arresting technology from a safe standoff distance to deflate tires and stop the vehicle safely, keeping the user out of sight from the target vehicle. NightHawk vehicle arresting device is highly effective in all chase scenarios, various terrains, and reduces the disruption of traffic flow. After a successful engagement of the target vehicle, the spike strips are retracted back into the housing allowing traffic to flow without disruption.
