LED-based medium intensity red beacon
The first product of its kind incorporating both red and IR LEDs in a single unit, Vigilant L-864 has been FAA certified to 150/5345-43F. The IR integration ensures better visibility for aircraft pilots using Night Vision Goggles and Aviator's Night Vision Imaging Systems. NVGs and ANVIS typically employ Class A, B and C filters that can reduce visibility of LED light sources. The Vigilant IR beacon incorporates night-vision-friendly IR LEDs and red LEDs in the same unit, making a small and lightweight flash head. This smaller footprint significantly reduces wind load.
