About TAG Specialty Vehicles (TSV) The TerraHawk
Designed for ease of deployment when the mission is critical, the M.U.S.T. (Mobile Utility Surveillance Tower) patent pending technology combines the capability of rapid deployment with the mobile flexibility needed to respond to any emergency situation or surveillance requirement.
M.U.S.T. uses its own vehicle to deploy an elevated tower and climate controlled capsule to an eye level height of over 25 feet. The vehicle can be fully deployed by one person at any location in less than two minutes without leaving the vehicle. The vehicle is equipped with a 4-point automatic self-leveling hydraulic stabilization system. An on-board Programmable Logic Controller operates the scissor mechanism, the electro-hydraulic stabilizers and a series of safety and security lock-out features.
The observation capsule provides a perfect platform for a variety of surveillance devices such as recordable digital and/or thermal imaging camera systems, communication and radio equipment, and a workstation for computing. The capsule easily accommodates two persons with an elevated line of sight which facilitates improved crowd control management and acts as a ground force multiplier.
