Expeditionary Airfield Lighting System (EALS)

Deployable Airfield Lighting for Military and Civilian Applications

The Expeditionary Airfield Lighting System (EALS) is a portable airfield lighting system designed for quick and easy deployment of portable solar airfield lights. Ideal for military, police and airport operators, the EALS system comes with an integrated solar charging system, keeping your lights charged and ready for use.


  • Stores and charges 112 lights for a complete 10,000 feet (3000 meters) runway
  • Configurable from 1,500-10,000 feet (500-3,000 meters) runway
  • Air transportable and towable to expedite airfield light installation
  • Integrated AC and solar charging system ensures airfield lights are always ready


The EALS system is easily configured to transport, charge and control these portable airfield lighting products:



The EALS combines our rugged cable and transportation trailer product line with our trusted A704, A650 and PAPI airfield lighting equipment. Our system is ideal for:

  • Military, police and airport operators
  • Night vision goggle (NVG) and covert operations
  • Humanitarian, disaster and medevac situations


Compliant and Self-Contained

Airfield lights are a critical navigation aid for pilots and ours are:

  • ICAO and FAA compliant
  • Solar-powered – no cabling or civil works required
  • Self-contained, integrated and sealed against water and dust to greater than IP68


Proven in Austere Environments

Used worldwide in military environments for over 15 years, our airfield lights exceed operational requirements,

  • Lightweight, compact and designed for portability with integrated handles, aviation yellow or olive drab chassis and military charge ports
  • Wirelessly controlled up to 2.5 miles (4 km) with military-grade encryption
  • High efficiency, LED optics
  • Third-party tested for performance
