Metalite’s portable lighting for the US

OREL - Afghanistan

During 2002/3 the US Air Force purchased a number of systems from Metalite to support Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom.

Products supplied included MOSKITs, SALKITs, CALKIT™ and CORELs. These are being used to mark runways and taxiways at airfields where no permanent lighting is installed and also as emergency back up to unreliable permanent airfield lighting systems.

Lighting meets NATO STANAG specifications as well as ICAO, FAA and CAA standards ensuring safe airfield operations. They can be controlled remotely from the ATC tower or from the airfield ensuring instant black out capability in emergency situations.
