Carmanah has received an order from the US Air National Guard for approximately $42K of its solar-powered LED airfield lights. The order consists of both its A702 IR solar LED airfield lights with infrared output as well as its new A704-5 solar LED airfield lights with centralized wireless control.

The US Air National Guard is already using Carmanah’s A702-5 airfield lights for “box-and-one” operations. This new order is scheduled for use at various bases and runways, both for overt and covert training operations.

With Carmanah’s self-contained, solar LED airfield lighting technology, US ANG personnel can install airfield lighting quickly and cost-effectively with minimal technical expertise required. As the lights are solar-powered, there is also no trenching, cabling or external power infrastructure required and they are also designed to operate for up to five years with no scheduled maintenance.

Carmanah’s next generation A704-5 solar LED airfield light features centralized wireless control. Groups of lights, or the entire solar LED airfield lighting system, can be controlled from the tower or from the air using Carmanah’s optional handheld wireless controller. The A704-5 is currently in use by the US Air Force, US ARMY, US Air National Guard, US Marine Corps as well as NATO Forces.

With more than 250,000 installations, Carmanah is a global leader in renewable and energy-efficient technologies. The Company now has more than 25,000 solar LED airfield lights in use by US Defence alone.
