RUAG Aerospace teamed-up with Flight Components, Switzerland (an EMTEQ Company) for new external light products. This represents a major step forward in the company's continuing efforts to provide helicopter customers with advanced technology for a safer operation.

RUAG Aerospace successfully completed the trials of its upgrade for Ecureuil helicopters with new navigation and high intensity Anti Collision Lights based on state-of-the-art LED technology and has recently obtained EASA approval.

The new product line represents an operation friendly modification for direct replacement of the existing light units using incandescent or halogen lamps. All products are 100% NVG friendly and the power consumption is lower than for the existing units.

Product features:
- less EMI noise
- resistant to vibration failures
- extended life cycle

LED technology on rotorcraft generates a milestone for better visibility and mission survivability in the air
