HEL-STAR 6 is a purpose-built helmet mounted LED light designed for airborne/MFF, tactical and other military operations.
HEL-STAR 6 combines the basic features of the earlier HEL-STAR 4 & HEL-STAR 5 multi-function marker lights into a compact, integrated design with enhanced omni-directional visibility, easy battery replacement, and waterproofness to 130 fsw.
Improved sliding switches enhance tactile feel and provide positive, intuitive control between the two operating modes and four user-defined functions. Functions can be selected from virtually any combination of White, four different color options, and IR – either flashing or steady. Variable flash rates, intensities and coded signals provide expanded IFF capability.
Independent testing has confirmed that the HEL-STAR 6 exceeds the FAA’s 3 statute mile visibility requirement. HEL-STAR 6 is built on a platform that allows new technology to be incorporated as it becomes available. As mission demands shift and expand, HEL-STAR 6 can evolve with changing user needs.
