HEL-STAR 6® is a multi-function 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 and easy battery replacement.
The newly refined HEL-STAR 6® Gen III offers a sleek design, integrated tie downs, battery changes without tools, and advanced electronics, including a field re-reprogramming option.
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® Gen III exceeds the FAA’s 3 statute mile visibility requirement and is shock and vibration resistant, dustproof, and open sea waterproof to 130 fsw (laboratory 300+ feet).
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® continues to evolve with changing user needs.
