Tilton, New Hampshire, USA – 10 June, 2021 – Avlite has released our new expeditionary airfield lighting system, AV-HMALS®. It introduces a raft of new military-focused products and incorporates them into a customizable and configurable system.

AV-HMALS® is a complete solution for military, humanitarian and civil applications. It can be used anywhere, including areas that are difficult to access or expensive to install and operate. It can also be utilized as an auxiliary airfield lighting is necessary.
Avlite can tailor AV-HMALS® to specific customer needs. Customers specify the type and quantity of Avlite airfield lights and also the power and communications options. Products that can be used in your system include our new military-focused range include:
All products are available in visible and IR lighting modes and can operate via solar, AC with Battery Backup, or AC with Battery Backup and solar.
“AV-HMALS® delivers flexible and portable airfield lighting solutions for a range of markets and customers. A full range of military solutions is a natural expansion for Avlite as we remain committed to being the technology leader in temporary and portable airfield lighting applications,” said Stewart.
“Our team has devoted effort and drive to deliver an effective result, presenting our customers with outstanding and unique systems.”
“The AV-HMALS® design provides flexibility and transport with rapid deployment and integrated storage for all Avlite airfield lights. The system is suitable for runways of varying terrains and lengths, and its rugged construction and configurable components enable the AV-HMALS® to withstand extreme temperatures during both the daytime and at night.”
Avlite has an extensive track record of providing expeditionary lighting. We have provided the US Department of Defense and other government and humanitarian aid agencies with lighting and systems. Our first Portable Airfield Lighting Systems (PALS) were deployed in the early 2000s throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The PALS systems were designed for rapid deployment and easy transport by helicopter or aircraft.
It is a great benefit to our community to have this [Avlite’s helipad lighting system] installed and commissioned at CareFlight’s Toowoomba base. Avlite’s particular type of lighting lends itself to a lot of applications given that it’s easy to install, doesn’t require electricity as its solar powered and can be remotely controlled. It’s a fabulous technology, obviously a world leading technology and from my point of view, it’s great to see an Australian Manufacturing success story.

For an aerodrome operator to provide equivalent night-use runway standards for the RFDS and other fixed-base users at around one-third of the cost of a traditional mains-powered runway and taxiway lighting system, there has to be greater recognised merit for this (solar-powered) alternative especially in a location like ours where it is sunny most days of the year.
Our industry appreciates the on-going support of this Australian owned and operated company whose solar powered airfield and helipad lighting systems assist in the improvement of safety for both fixed and rotary wing aeromedical flight crews and passengers around the country.
As the busiest Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) based in the State [of Queensland], the benefits [of Avlite’s helipad lighting] are many. Not only does it [the system] enhance the safety of our operations, it also helps us to continue to improve our level of service delivery to the community and to our customers.

These lights [AV-70s] have been a great asset to many outback communities that previously we were not able to access 24/7.
Just to let you know the new airport floodlight has now been installed for several weeks and the medical staff and Power and Water staff [who look after the airport] agree it has made things much easier and safer for night-time medivacs. Your assistance with enabling us to have this basic but important infrastructure is much appreciated.
Since starting our distributorship with Avlite, we have gone from strength to strength with the great range of solar products and of course the fantastic support of the Avlite staff. It’s been a good year for us. May it continue.
Re: Avlite AV70 taxiway lights, are working really well. Thank you for your assistance in getting our ramp up and running.

The lights are installed and are operating beautifully.
We did install all of the lights. We even used a few red lights as obstruction markers on top of 68 meter power line towers. I finally found a high quality camera and took some photos. I will send them to you as soon as I can download them. We submitted some additional light orders to our contracting office, so you can expect to receive a bit solicitation from them soon. The lights are working great and we appreciate the support.
