Carmanah’s A704-5 solar-powered infrared airfield lights are illuminating “small austere airfields” (SAAF) at an undisclosed US Air Force base. The solar-powered portable airfield lights are being used to enhance airfield safety during covert and overt emergency tactical operations at the remote location. Portability, field-proven reliability and infrared capabilities were all important factors in the decision to use Carmanah lights.
