Visual Guidance Remote Airport Lighting Systems
This project aims at developing low-cost/ low-power lighting systems that can be deployed at remote airports. Lighting at rural airports is much needed as they give communities they serve a transportation link during time-critical situations such as emergency medical services. However, those communities may not have sufficient infrastructure to provide reliable low cost power for lighting. A low cost lighting system will improve the community safety during times of both normal and critical operations. Thus, the RALS project tends to provide low cost / low power lights at remote airports to allow safe operation during hours of darkness.
