  • White C4® LED for bright light: 55 lumens; 1,175 candela; 69m beam distance
  • Blue LED (470 nm peak wavelength ) alerts friendly forces; distinguishes strobe from ground fire: 1.8 lumens; 130 candela; 23m beam distance
  • IR LED (880 nm peak wavelength) for covert operations: 25mW/sr (min) radiant intensity
  • Green LED (527 nm peak wavelength ) to help preserve night vision: 4.5 lumens; 68 candela; 16m beam distance
  • All LEDs provide unidirectional light for general lighting needs and omni-directional light when using the slide-in-place diffuser
  • Diffuser provides omni-directional light per CID A-A-59176 (formerly MIL-SPEC MIL-L-38217D)
  • Flash rate: 110 bpm (default); push and hold button to achieve 50 bpm
  • Two "AA" alkaline batteries (included) provide fast replacement with readily available batteries. Also accepts two “AA” lithium for extended operation in extreme temperature environments (-40F to 150F). Tactile battery polarity
  • indication on body facilitates battery replacement in the dark. Battery compartment cap tethered to prevent loss of cap
  • Aluminum plate provides flat surface to adhere Velcro® for attaching to helmet
  • Paracord lanyard provides extra security from loss of the light and also allows it to be worn around the neck. Additionally, it can enhance air-to-ground visibility when the light is turned on and spun overhead like a lasso in a circular pattern to increase the likelihood of being spotted by a search and rescue team
  • Cord attachment holes provided in battery compartment cover capable of supporting 25 lb of load
  • Push-button switch enables/disables selected illumination source. Double-click of push-button initiates high output strobe of selected illumination source; tactile indicator on rotary knob for IR LED position
