The CALZONI Expeditionary Airfield Lighting is designed as a lighting system for aircraft/helicopter night operations for VMC use (Visual Meteorological Conditions) limited to VFR (Visual Flight Rules) to be used in severe conditions when standard equipment cannot be used.

Different configurations of luminous source are available: runway lights (white), threshold lights (green), end lights (red). The system is modular and can consist of any type of the above lights, in variable quantity, depending on the operative configuration.

The wireless remote controller allows to manage the system from remote. Optional “air to ground” remote control unit 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 can be supplied by rechargeable batteries and not rechargeable batteries. The charger is integrated in the transport container. It is not required to remove batteries from light. The container has to be powered by main line 230Vac. The recharge of the batteries can be performed also with the closed container or during the transport or storage.

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 Light on the stake 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.
