The HAWK system provides defense against enemy air attack.
The system detects targets via acquisition radars, which are capable of detecting aircraft at sufficient range to support the maximum missile intercept capabilities.
Volume coverage is provided by the "PIPAR", which is capable to detect up to a 100km range.
Low altitude coverage is provided by the "PICWAR" which is capable to detect up to a 70km range and at altitudes of up to 3km.
Identification of friend or FOE is provided by the "IFF".
Digital information from the radars is sent to the improved coordination center, "ICC" and processed. Targets are evaluated and receive priority according to the threat they impose.
After detection, identification and classification by the "ICC" have been completed, the system acquires lock on the target via the improved high power illumination, "IHIPIR" which illuminates the assigned target and provides a reference signal for the hawk missile.
When all criteria for launching a missile have met the designated "ILCHR" activates, aims and launches the missile at the optimum position for target intercept.
