The Civilian LED Airfield Lighting Kit (CALKIT) is a purpose-designed, battery-powered runway LED lighting system specifically designed for airports, airfields or heliports use. Designed, tested and fielded to FAA, ICAO and NATO international standards for portable, primary or emergency runway and helipad lighting operations, the CALKIT is suitable for use with both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

- Optional LED approach lighting system, LED REILs, LED PAPIs, LED obstruction lights, LED taxiway lights & LED wind cones
The CALKIT is the most installed, versatile and proven, battery powered LED runway lighting system for civil, defense and humanitarian aid operations. The road going trailer stores, charges and transports all required lighting for runways up to 3000 meters or heliports of multiple helipads. The CALKIT is designed to be rapidly deployed in emergency situations, and is easily transported when intended for use at more than one location. When operating at FAA non-precision MIRLs (medium intensity runway lighting system) intensities (125cd), the LED runway edge and LED threshold lights provide 40 hours of light output (280 hours* at ICAO 50cd) before charging is necessary. Recharging of the LED airfield or helipad light is achieved in 8 hours or less ensuring operational readiness on consecutive nights for weeks, months or years on end. As the most fielded portable LED airfield lighting and heliport lighting system in the world with more than 50 years of global installations operating on all major continents, industries most demanding customers continue to rely on the CALKIT LED portable airfield and heliport lighting system as their emergency, temporary and sustaining aviation lighting system for year round, reliable, safe airport operations.
