SALKIT

Supplementary Airfield Lighting Kit

SALKIT - HALOGEN

Overview

A trailer mounted, portable airfield lighting system containing NVG compatible portable edge lights. Which may be used independently or to expand the capability of the MOSKIT system.

ABOUT

In situations where the minimum runway specification provided by MOSKIT is not sufficient SALKIT contains the additional edge lighting needed to expand MOSKIT’s potential by allowing:

  • Closer spacing of runway edge lights
  • Extended runways
  • The marking of taxiways and parking areas

SALKIT was designed specifically to meet a need identified by the US Marine Corps who used the system, together with MOSKIT, during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. The US Air Force used both systems in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.

Our case studies section gives in depth examples of how the MOSKIT portable airfield lighting system is currently being used to support airfield operations around the world.
