For Immediate Release
30 September, 2010 --/ Avlite Systems has delivered a radio controlled solar LED obstruction lighting system to Claiborne Range for US Air Force training operations. The AV425 will provide pilots and ground crew the ability to mark and illuminate strategic points within the flying range for both visible and infrared LED lighting requirements. Using a 2.4 GHz encrypted mesh network, the AV425 can be activated from the ground, air traffic control tower or cockpit of an aircraft via VHF radio signal. With a custom designed omni-directional lens to FAA and ICAO photometric requirements, pilots can clearly identify lighting points on approach, from directly above or when circling due to the lack of solar panel on top of the fixture head. In addition, Avlite’s AV MESH Network allows all lights to communicate via a command and receive redundant network providing fail-safe, self-healing and self-realizing wireless communications.
In coordination with Aviation Renewables, a consultant based organization specializing in renewable power and lighting solutions, the US Air Force required a solution that provided exceptional lighting and control capabilities for pilots training in all types of simulated environments. The only available solar LED radio controlled aviation light capable of meeting the performance, operational, safety and cost objectives for the training range was the AV425 with its corresponding 2.4 GHz hand held controller. As providers of proven, tested and custom solutions for both defense and civilian operations, Avlite Systems and Aviation Renewables continue to support the industry’s most demanding aircraft and challenging operating environments.
