LED Smart is proud to supply the ancillary tactical LED Lighting and Power Distribution System to the Canadian Forces for their new Headquarters Shelter Systems (HQSS) project. Weatherhaven Global Resources Ltd. utilized the HTL LED Lighting System to provide specialized tactical lighting systems in the new shelters.
The HTL Lighting System, comprising of rapidly deployable LED Lighting and the shelters' power grid, uses high tech LED lighting. The Canadian Forces is one of the first to adopt some of the world's best new technologies. These include the wide-spread area coverage uses covert NVIS Green A as the secondary light source and the use of automated self-detecting capacitive back up for emergency power to reduce the reliance on batteries.
The system is designed to be modular and expandable. Controlling up to 100 lights with just one smart switch. Additionally, the lighting system being modular allows for deployment in any country, with changeable power cords.
The HQSS program will require a minimum of 8,500 tactical lighting kits, 2,125 switch kits, and 2,125 power distribution kits as firm contracted items. In addition, there is a potential for 20 years of in-service support in a series of four, 5-year optional contracts.
Universal Ground Control Shelters
Adapted for AAI/Textron in 2007, according to their requirements, the Mini Light has had continued success in the implementation and use in the Ground Control Shelters.
The product is low profile and dimmable. Allowing the operator to dim the white light also available in NVIS blue light. This product is in continual production for AAI and other contract manufacturers, such as Lockheed Martin Unmanned Integrated Systems.
MSVS Task Lighting
LED SMART designed and manufactured the LED lighting for the task lighting for the MSVS Shelter systems from Dew Engineering.
Project required an extremely bright light to be mounting under the cabinetry for desk and task lighting. With only 20" of space the desired lux were achieved, reaching upwards of 1075 lux on the work space. These lights achieve an impressive 123 Im/w, working with the MSVS 28V system.
MSVS Interior Lighting system
Lighting supplier for the MSVS project to Dew Engineering. Project required a bright white LED for main lighting operations, with the optional NVIS Red for blackout mode. These lights are mounted into an IP65 fixture, and operate at the required 28VDC input.
Tested for operation from -40°C ~ 60°C. Additional MIL-STD-461 certification required for use in the military shelter lighting system.
US Coast Guard
Lighting supplier for Berg Manufacturing, project: US Coast Guard’s onboard “People Pod”. Project required a bright white LED for main lighting in crew barracks, with the optional NVIS Blue for blackout mode. These lights are specially designed to allow for maximum head room in the very tight quarters. The operation with dual light colors within the smallest fixture possible was a distinct advantage for the LED Smart CWL-C series light.
Available in lengths of 12” - 48”, the CWL-C series can be applied to areas with small profiles and tight restrictions.
