HEL-STAR 5 is an expanded three function, low profile LED marker light designed specifically for snag free mounting on helmets. Used extensively throughout military freefall for HAHO/HALO; the HEL-STAR 5 has also proven valuable for other airborne and ground operations. Its conformal design allows for alternative marking applications on aerial delivery, vehicles, outerwear and equipment. Velcro interfaces make for quick installation without tools or hardware, reducing snag hazards, while providing easy detachment by users.
Detented sliding switches offer positive visual and tactile confirmation of ON/OFF status and operating mode. The three functions, currently available in any combination of White, Green, or IR � flashing or steady � are being further expanded to include multiple color options. IFF capabilities are enhanced by flexible programming, featuring unique, user-defined flash rates or codes. Field replaceable lithium C123 cells ensure long life and excellent cold temperature operation. HEL-STAR 5 eliminates the need for multiple items on the helmet by combining the capabilities of a strobe and chem-light into one fully functional device. HEL-STAR 5 was designed for easy operation with gloved hands in the blind.
