Armadillo Portable
                    Airfield Lighting

The CALZONI ARMADILLO is an LED-based Portable Lighting System for airfields. It is a flexible system that provides different incremental levels of flight support capability, ranging from temporary emergency airfield to a full operational international airfield. Additionally, it can be used as a supplementary system for a local airport. ARMADILLO meets all relevant international standards for portable airfield lighting.

ARMADILLO supports aircraft during VFR conditions. The set consists of 66 modular lights. The base configuration mainly consists of runway lights (white), threshold lights (green), and runway end lights (red). The color of the light is can be customized and can be easily changed.

                          Omnidirectional LightEach light uses an LED lighting source (high flux type) which ensures long life, low power consumption, and minimal maintenance costs when compared to traditional incandescent lamps. The base system is also compatible with all night vision devices and can be remotely controlled by a portable Remote Control Unit (RCU). The lights (L-863) are FAA certified according to FAA 150/5345-50B, while the Remote Control Unit (L-854) is designed according to FAA 150/5345-49A. ARMADILLO is designed to be highly portable,
durable, and maintenance free.

The compact and rugged trailer is more than just a simple storage trailer. It can be transported by air, and is designed to allow fast loading and unloading along with charging the batteries while they are in storage. The doors can be secured in an open position and the cabinets are built to allow the operator to pull the lights out and drop them in place while the trailer is being towed down the runway. The ability to charge the lights in the trailer, with a drop-in system requiring no cables, ensures that each placed light is fully charged and ready to go.

Each light unit is powered by internal batteries. The system is lightweight, durable and user-friendly. The intuitive interface means that even inexperienced operators can set up and operate the system. ARMADILLO can truly be placed and operated under any meteorological conditions!
