Luminator is a long time supplier of controllable searchlight technology, acquiring its initial offerings with the merger of GlarBan Corporation and Luminator in the early 90’s. Over the last few years, Luminator greatly increased its controllable searchlight market share with its traditional incandescent and halogen tri-lamp searchlight models.  Luminator has forged lasting business relationships with OEM’s on the following programs:

  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlights for Eurocopter Germany and France
  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlights for Australian Tigre Helicopter (Eurocopter)
  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlights for the US 101 Program
  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlights for US DHS (Border Patrol)
  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlight for US Army LUH Helicopter Program
  • Dual Mode, Tri-Lamp Searchlight for US Army National Guard S&S Battalion Helicopter Program
  • Dual Mode Searchlight for the US Army Kiowa OH-58

Not content to rely solely on the more traditional lighting sources, Luminator pioneered the development of High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon lamps for highly efficient white light generation.  In addition, IR energy is now supplied by IR emitting LED’s instead of filtered incandescent lamps.  This latest family of HID/IR LED searchlights has been very well received by the industry, and has become the standard controllable searchlight for a variety of military and commercial OEM’s and operators.  Our customer list includes:

  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode Searchlight for the Boeing AH-6i
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode Searchlight for US Coast Guard HH-65
  • Single, Dual Mode and HID/IR LED Searchlights for Agusta Aerospace A109, AW139, and other models
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode for Agusta Westland Future Lynx
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode for Bell Helicopter 429
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode for Spanish Air Force
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode for Royal Australian Navy Program
  • HID/IR LED Dual Mode Searchlights for the UK Ministry of Defence Chinook

Luminator will soon be introducing a commercial version of its all LED controllable searchlight. Scheduled availability is March 2017.
