Carmanah solar LED airfield guidance signs allow for increased safety on every corner of an airfield. Used to illuminate on-airfield signage and distance-to-go markers, solar powered guidance signs increase airfield navigability and pilot comfort in night and low-visibility conditions.

Carmanah solar LED airfield lighting provides reliable dusk-to-dawn illumination for critical signage, allowing for uncompromised safety when it’s needed most.

A simple solution for airfields that experience difficulties with grid access or for those that require a quick, minimally disruptive addition to an existing airfield.

Includes an L-858Y, L-858R, L-858L, or L-858B solar-powered sign and a solar engine power supply (SEPS).

SEPS incorporates the latest technology in solar technology, hardware, and software to provide a reliable and sustainable power source

“Carmanah airfield lights saved lives in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom II at Balad Air Base. Your sturdy maintenance-free self-contained lights were deployed in one day, lighting our parking pads, refueling areas, taxiways and four landing pads for our 140 plus helicopters. They instantly made our operations safer. Great product.”

“We tested the A704 and I must say it is nice. It was on this morning when I pulled in. Yesterday we had a midday thunderstorm and it came on due to the overcast. I was surprised at how little darkness it needed to trigger operational mode.”

“We have received great feedback from our range control officers and the aircrews alike. The lights have truly lived up to and far exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend them to our fellow ranges.”
