ARRB Systems has a proud history of developing and manufacturing high quality pavement monitoring equipment and has been successfully developing commercial road survey equipment since the early 1980’s. Equipment development begun in the early years at the Australian Road Research Board, as a means of being able to test certain project theories in a practical sense. This led to the commercialisation of the equipment in the early 1990’s, and the first survey systems were sold internationally. The Hawkeye platform was released in 1994, and is now the backbone to the majority of our product and software options. The Hawkeye range is well-recognised within the industry, with over 80 systems operational around the world.


Our customers include international aid agencies, national governments, state road authorities, local governments, major construction firms, and transport and mining companies.
