The CALZONI Portable Light System is designed as a lighting system for helipad and Minimum Operating Strips (MOS) airfields.

The system is constituted of a transport suitcase that includes a set of light units and other equipments to support the landing. FAA rules are applied.

Different configurations of light units are available with aeronautical colours and infrared (IR). Light units fulfil the runway (white), approach (white), threshold (green) and runway end lights (red). The system is modular and can consist of any type of the above lights, in variable quantity, depending on the operative POL Light Unit configuration.

Two types of remote controller are available: the “ground to ground” wireless remote controller allows to manage the system from remote; the optional “air to ground” remote control unit, built according to FAA regulations, allow to receive
on/off command from an aircraft.

Each light uses LED lighting source (high flux type) and dedicated lenses, as to increase the photometric characteristics and the life, reducing the power consumption and the maintenance costs against the traditional incandescent lamps. With the LED source the system becomes NVG compatible and with LED IR the system becomes conform for “covert” operations.

Portable lights are supplied by rechargeable batteries. The charger is in the transport container. It is not required to remove batteries from light. The container has to be powered by main line at 110, 240Vac. It is available an optional external battery charger.

Lights are designed to be easily and quickly utilized also from not trained operators. The system is supplied in special anti-shock plastic containers to facilitate transport operations via aircraft or military vehicles.

                                                                                           Main Features:

  LED light for a long range visibility, extremely high reliability, high service life (more than 80.000 hours), reduced maintenance.

  “Ground to ground ” and “Air to ground” optional remote controls for system managing from ground and from aircraft.

  Transport container with trolley.
