Airbus Helicopters Approves Trakka A800 Searchlight
Airbus Helicopters Germany has granted serial production qualification for Trakkacorp’s A800 helicopter searchlight. The TrakkaBeam A800 searchlight, which has already been certified on the EC155, EC225, and is STC’d on the AS350, will be type certified for the EC135, EC145 and EC175.
Its internally integrated filter wheel enables the installation of a range of spectral light filters including infrared, visible red and amber. This creates visibility and mission capability during night-time operations, in moist or foggy conditions, and during NVG operations. Users of the searchlight include ground and airborne law enforcement, security forces, as well as search and rescue agencies.
