Carmanah Aviation Launches the World’s First Fully-integrated, Wireless Solar Airfield Lighting System
Carmanah Aviation is pleased to introduce the first complete alternative to conventional hard-wired airfield lighting systems. Airport operators now have access to all of the solar technology required to light a fully functional precision airfield; from approach lights to PAPI's, to runway lighting, taxiway and apron lights, directional signage and more.
US Department of Defense Chooses A650 Obstruction Lights
The US Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Carmanah a contract to supply solar powered obstruction lights to a major airfield in the Middle East. The A650 solar powered obstruction lights will increase safety for aircraft on the ground at the undisclosed forward operating base and will simultaneously support DoD energy reduction objectives in theater.
Installation of the obstruction lights is extremely quick and does not require trenching, wiring or disruptions in aviation operations.
Carmanah Offers Flexible Solution for Airfield Lights
Carmanah continues to respond to customer needs by creating accessories for their LED lighting aviation products which are highly adaptable to challenging conditions. The aviation mat matched with a Carmanah solar light is ideal for temporary hazard marking on an airfield. The lights and mats clearly delineate construction areas from aircraft operating areas.
US Air Force Museum Adds Carmanah A704-5 to Collection
The National Museum of the United States Air Force, located near Dayton, Ohio recently bestowed a great honour on Carmanah Techologies by accepting one of its products, the A704-5 to be included in their collection of air force memorabilia. This rare occurrence reflects the light’s impact during long campaigns in the Middle East supporting temporary and mobile aviation operations in many forward operating bases.
Portable Airfield Trailer and Power Supply Supports Maneuver Operations
Carmanah’s latest product line addition is designed to meet the needs of customers who require a high intensity, portable airfield lighting capability.

The functional and tough trailer ensures that the airfield lighting system can be moved quickly and efficiently to support maneuver operations.

This product is a milestone addition to the total LED airfield system offered by Carmanah Aviation.
Airfield needs differ greatly, and Carmanah’s PAPI, which satisfies ICAO and FAA requirements for light intensity, is adaptable to many scenarios.
