Wireless control units for traffic management systems.

Nighthawk Systems : 31 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Nighthawk to supply ATS with power controllers for wireless traffic control systems for toll enforcement and traffic camera systems.
Nighthawk Systems has received an initial order from American Traffic Solutions, a preferred provider of photo traffic and electronic toll enforcement programs. The initial order of 600 Nighthawk wireless control units is expected to begin shipment this month with final delivery to be received by May 2008. Nighthawk Systems has already been notified to expect significant follow-on orders.

On September 25, 2007, ATS was granted the exclusive right to sell or resell Nighthawk's wireless power control system for specific use in automated photo traffic enforcement and electronic toll and traffic management devices.

Nighthawk designed and built a customised product to be integrated into the industry leading ATS solution. As such, the specialty product generates a higher return per unit to Nighthawk than other standard products, yet offers more functionality and a quicker return on investment to ATS than previously-used technologies.

ATS manufactures and markets vehicle traffic enforcement equipment and systems. Privately held and headquartered in Arizona, ATS has been rapidly growing over the past year as more city budgets have tightened, increasing the need for tools beyond the patrol car to help with traffic management and as the public has increasingly shown support for the use of cameras as a safety precaution to crack down on speeders and red-light runners. ATS has added over 200 employees in the past year and is currently deploying product into 16 states. At the core of ATS mission is its dedication to evolutionary technology. By adding the Nighthawk wireless control system, the ATS system has the ability to wirelessly access and control power to equipment at each site independently and simultaneously from a central source.

Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk's CEO, stated, "The sequential improvement in our revenues each quarter over the past two years was dominated by our success in the electric utility industry. With today's announcement, we are establishing a new product line, a fault-tolerant control system that provides secure and reliable access in mission-critical and emergency situations. This product carries higher returns than our current business and has applications in numerous industries beyond the photo enforcement market. There is a growing need for this product at ATS and within other communication networks that require reliable, remote access to ensure that critical equipment is working properly.

Many internal and external factors within a network can cause network components and digital equipment to lockup or go down completely. Nighthawk is the only provider that offers a wireless, out-of-band solution that enables on-demand access to those critical components, ensuring that equipment is operating when it needs to be. We look forward doing a great job addressing this new opportunity."
