BAE Systems Signs an Agreement to Sell Lighting and Control Device for Fighting Vehicles

Category: Defence Industry

BAE Systems signed an agreement with ELTAM, a leading developer and manufacturer of intelligent Light Emitting Diode (LED) based light and control systems, to promote and sell its LED-based products for military vehicles. The first product of this family is the LED-based Light, Emergency Light, Battery Status Indicator (LEBSI).

The LEBSI is a combat-proven direct plug-and-play replacement for the old single function incandescent dome light. The main features of the LEBSI include a dome light, an emergency light with an independent back-up power source providing light for up to two hours, a vehicle battery monitor that includes a visual alert in the event of low voltage, and better distribution of white and blue light. The battery status indicator is especially critical for the survivability of the crew and the vehicle because it provides the crew with an alert during silent watch missions when battery power is getting low, which allows the crew to start the vehicle, move and recharge. This system uses less power than the old dome lights, but the intensity output and light distribution are higher.

BAE Systems has installed the product on several platforms and received positive feedback from troops in the field. The product has shown to improve soldiers' mission effectiveness and reduce long-term maintenance costs. LEBSI unit can be installed in minutes by the end-user without any additional tools or training.
