Hawkeye 2000 Series

Selia H2000

The Hawkeye Survey Platform is the most complete and advanced data collection system in the industry today. Hawkeye has been built through 50 years of steady research and development investments and continues to be refined as technology evolves.

Hawkeye is a modular survey system which enables complete scalability and customized functionality, whilst still delivering consistent and integrated data outputs. This allows systems to range from portable compliance profilers, to fully automated network survey vehicles, to continuous friction and deflection measuring devices.

Using the same system architecture across the Hawkeye range allows equipment to be supplementary and also interchangeable to suit client’s project needs and deliver optimal project outcomes at maximum efficiency. It also allows simultaneous and synchronized collection of complementary data such as Retro reflectivity, LiDAR, GPR, continuous skid resistance data and other attributes.

Hawkeye 2000 Series Brochure

Hawkeye 2000 packages are installed on a dedicated Network Survey Vehicle, allowing for safe and efficient data collection of multiple network parameters. Due to its limited requirement for computer hardware, the Hawkeye 2000 series can be installed on a wide variety of vehicles.

Once your requirements are established, simply customise the Hawkeye 2000 packages to meet your needs. The modular design enables the Hawkeye 2000 system to be configured to the client’s current requirements and ensures it is completely flexible and scalable to meet future demands.

The Hawkeye Automatic Crack Detection (ACD) system is the most advanced cracking system available in the market. Utilizing two high performance 3D laser units fitted to the rear of the vehicle, the ACD is fully integrated into the Hawkeye platform, meaning outputs are precisely aligned, both linearly and spatially, with the measurements from other sensors.

ARRB Systems has undertaken years of development and testing of the ACD, which has allowed us to develop customized crack reporting formats to meet the needs of our clients. The Hawkeye software is capable of producing multiple cracking reports and has the ability to analyse the ‘crack maps’ using our own proprietary software. These algorithms also include proprietary software code to detect and remove False Positives and other Non-crack features.

The newly released GIPSI-Trac2 is the next generation GNSS + INS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems + Inertial Navigation System) geometry module. The GIPSI-Trac2 utilizes dead-reckoning sensors and dual GNSS antennas to collect position and road geometry information with sub-metre accuracy.

This combined system provides a far greater update rate and supports more satellite systems than previous GNSS offerings, including SBAS and Omnistar. It boasts real-time fused GNSS/INS outputs in all survey conditions, including periods of GNSS outage. Built-in dead-reckoning allows for position data to be recorded when in tunnels, under bridges and locations with little or no GNSS coverage.


  • Uses an integrated GNSS receiver and dead-reckoning inertial sensors
  • 200Hz fused data output
  • Typical mapping accuracy of 1.2 m
  • Exports to CSV and point or polyline shapefiles
  • Readily interfaces with a number of GIS packages
  • Has fully customisable GPS projection methods (Lat, Long, Easting, Northing and a range of datums)

  • Road geometry and complex position for 3D mapping
  • Operates in all locations: Inside tunnels, Under bridges, Highly vegetated or mountainous regions
  • Estimate speed and travel times
  • Locate potential sites for rainfall ponding
  • Conformance to design specifications

  • Grade
  • Cross slope
  • Horizontal and vertical curvature
  • Inertially corrected GNSS position
  • Distance
