Paris. 09 June 2016. FEC Heliports Worldwide will be demonstrating the capabilities of the newly launched MIL-Star portable battery powered LED helipad lighting system in the Discovery Hall at EUROSATORY, Paris, France from the 13th to 17th June 2016.
The MIL-Star portable battery powered LED helipad lighting is designed primarily for rapid deployment and use by advancing military forces in temporary and emergency situations to provide safe and effective marking at designated or ad-hoc helicopter landing areas and for tactical airborne and air drop operations.
The MIL-Star is a versatile man portable landing light system that allows fixed and rotary wing aircraft to identify landing areas or drop zones at night at distances of up to 10 Miles (16kms).
Able to support non-overt, covert and FLIR operations, the system contains up to 8 landing lights, each weighing less than 1 kg. A fully populated case of 8 lights weighs only 10.6Kg.
MIL-Star is capable of showing, at programmable intensities, red, blue, green, white visible LED’s and infra-red or a combination of a visible colour and infra-red to support pilots wearing Night Vision Goggles (NVG’s)
The MIL-Star portable LED helipad lighting system has recently achieved FCC certification for operation in the US, and CE certification for the European Union.
