The Tactical Airfield Lighting Kit (TALKIT) is a versatile man-portable landing light system that allows fixed and rotary wing aircraft to identify landing areas and drop zones at night at distances of up to 5kms. The system contains up to 8 landing lights and is able to support non-overt and covert operations. Weighing less than 1 kg, the system can be controlled manually or by radio.
The light source is provided by six stacked LED arrays that provide both visual and IR light output in a range of intensities and as a steady, flashing, or rotating signal.
Visible colors include white, red, and green.
Power is supplied by a rechargeable, high-density lithium-ion battery packs that allow the system to be used over a broad range of temperatures, typically between -40°C and +50°C.
The tactical landing light system is recharged via the drop-in charger cradle located in the lid of the carrying case, which accepts either AC or DC input. Alternatively, DC power can be supplied directly to individual landing lights via a connector at the base of each light unit. As emergency back up, the lights can also be powered by a primary cell attached to the base of each light using an external connector.
The TALKIT is available in a choice of carrying options and the system is suitable for a range of applications. These include portable landing zones or airstrips, at refueling or rearming areas, during search and rescue missions, as drop zone markers, or as route marker or field marker lights.
