Boeing’s Spectrolab has introduced new high-intensity LED searchlights for use on military rotorcraft, Spectrolab announced on 5 March.

Both the Nightsun XPM and SLL 46-200 LED searchlights meet current military specification (MIL-SPEC) guidelines for both the visible and infrared light spectrums. The Nightsun XPM has been tested aboard a Boeing Chinook helicopter.

Both searchlight products use additive manufacturing for reduced part count and improved maintainability.They will also be available to the commercial market.

Tony Mueller, president of Spectrolab, said: ‘These are powerful examples of Spectrolab innovation in airborne lighting that often exceeds rigorous requirements in MIL-SPEC applications. As new searchlight technology, they expand on our 50-year history of providing advanced lighting for rotorcraft platforms.’
