“Are you dreaming about having a real time wind indication in your glider? Do you feel sometimes in the Alps that wind suddenly changes?”

Get real-time wind with HAWK

Real-time wind indication – 3D wind. HAWK option enables instantaneous wind readings on all 3 axes.

HAWK in action

Measurement.

HAWK uses sensor fusion and advanced digital signal processing to estimate the air mass movement.

3-dimensional wind triangle.

HAWK applies an “extended Kalman filter” (EKF) algorithm that jointly estimates all three dimensions of the air mass movement.

Wind visualization

Instant results.

EKF estimates the wind direction and velocity instantaneously (horizontal and vertical). No more waiting!

No compensation, no compromise.

No compensation needed, since it uses no law of energy conservation. More accurate netto vario readings independent of glider speed.

No false thermals due to wind gusts = No more “stick” lift.

HAWK by Customer

HAWK works very good by the way, good hints to get the thermals centered better. Really impressive tool! Feels almost like being a bird!

Thanks for your efforts (to the whole LXNAV team) to make our sport much more joyable with these super systems!

A red and blue vario needles at the same time. Red shows the value of computations of the TEK while light blue shows the value of the EKF.

The results of the attitude estimate of the EKF can also be displayed as an artificial horizon.

AVAILABILITY AND SUPPORTED HARDWARE.

The HAWK option is presently available for GEN4 or newer navigation systems (LX80xx, LX90xx) with V8 or V80 variometer. HAWK compatibility depends on specific device configuration and can be checked in the About dialogue on the navigational device (application version 8.03i or newer). For S10 and S100 is avaible as a software option.

HAWK has been developed by Heinrich Meyr and Peng Huang and is licensed to LXNAV
