L3 CALZONI PORTABLE GLIDE PATH INDICATOR

                                                Compliance:


NATO Stanag 1236



                                                Applications:



The Portable Lighting System is designed to provide visual landing aids during severe operational conditions of aircraft and helicopter without the use of on-ground equipment.

The system is composed by portable lights, to be used as perimeter or approach lights, and a Portable Glide Path Indicator (PGPI).




The PGPI (compliant to the NATO STANAG 1236) is a 3 colored beam (red, green, amber) that is a standard for
military ground and naval operation.

Usually it is positioned in the direction of landing, opposite to the aircraft arrival, and it is adjusted to have a vertical beam angle depending on obstructions or operational requirements.

The PGPI is composed of a projector (12° horizontal beam, 5° red, 2° green, 5° amber vertical beam, 30° azimuth adjustment) installed on a 3 legged platform to allow easy and fast positioning of the beam. It is powered through a rechargeable battery. The PGPI is supplied in a IP67 plastic box to facilitate transport operations.




                                                                             Photometric Characteristics:


  Horizontal Beam: 28°.

  Vertical Beam: 5° Yellow, 2° Green, 5° Red.

  Intensity: 260 cd Yellow, 150 cd Green, 100 cd Red.

  Elevation Angle: From 0° to 30°.

  Visibility: More than 10 km (VMC).

  In NVG Mode: Upper Sector 1Hz, Central Sector Fixed, Lower Sector 3Hz.



 
                                                                                           How To Use:

  Install and fix the projector on the platform.

  Install the 3 legs on the platform.

  Position the system on the ground and set the ZERO position acting on the 3 legs through the spirit device.

  Tight the nuts on the legs as to strengthen the platform.

  Set the azimuth angle of the PGPI acting on the lateral adjustment and visual indication depending on the obstacles or the operational requirements. Tighten the lateral adjustment at the end.

  Connect the PGPI to the battery box.

  If necessary fix the system to the ground using the lateral holes on the platform.



                                                                               Technical Characteristics:
