Watch  S4GA webinar and learn about Military Airfield Lighting Trailer.

The webinar is dedicated to S4GA solution for emergency and temporary operations at military bases – Portable Airfield Lighting System in a Trailer. During the webinar we introduce features of AGL system. Special attention is given also to a unique product that S4GA engineers designed for military customers – a portable WIRED airfield lighting system.

As you will see S4GA Airfield Lighting Trailer is a perfect solution for military airbases looking for a reliable, mobile runway lighting systems. It allows for easy and rapid illumination of temporary airfields, reserve airfield, and minimum operating strips. The Trailer complies with appropriate military environmental specifications. It is made of high-quality materials and can withstand repeated handling and transportation. S4GA Trailer accommodates a complete set of lights for illumination up to 2500 m runways in accordance with ICAO, FAA, NATO, EASA requirements.

Currently S4GA Military trailer is successfully used by one of the biggest Airforces in the World –  German Air Forces, Argentine Air Forces.

Webinar was hosted by Mr Dmytro Kuczeruk – S4GA Business Development Manager.

This Webinar is dedicated to the airfield lighting solutions that S4GA offers to military airfields and air bases:

S4GA military airfield lighting equipment is certified and compliant with ICAO, FAA, EASA, NATO STANAG . It is designed to operate in the most extreme conditions. The lights have passed multiple tests on photometrics, chromaticity, frangibility, jet blast resistance, ingress protection, and electromagnetic compatibility. Test reports and certificates are available on request.

S4GA airfield lighting is controlled remotely and can be activated via Handheld Controller, ALCMS computer interface, VHF, or manually via emergency on/off button.

The lights can operate in visible, NVG (Night Vision Goggles) and dusk till dawn modes. Light intensity is adjustable.

The webinar was hosted by Mr Dmytro Kuczeruk – S4GA Business Development Manager and Specialist in military airfield lighting systems.

This Webinar is dedicated to ICAO compliance of S4GA Solar Airfield Lighting systems.

In this Webinar we talk about ICAO regulations and explain why S4GA Solar AGL can be used as permanent system by Commercial Airports.

Airfield lighting industry has changed over the last decades. If 10 years ago solar runway lights were used as a temporary solution, today more and more airports would choose solar airfield lighting as a permanent system for their airports. Why? Because of numerous advantages that solar AGL solution has:

  • higher reliability,
  • lower investment,
  • fast and easy installation,
  • zero operating cost.

In this Webinar, we explain:

1. Typical cases when commercial airports use solar permanent runway lighting

2. Key ICAO documents regulating AGL

3. ICAO Compliance of S4GA Solar Airfield Lighting

 

The ICAO compliance of S4GA Solar Airfield Lighting Webinar was hosted by Mr Dmytro Kuczeruk – S4GA Business Development Manager.

This S4GA Webinar is dedicated to Backup Runway Lighting for International Airports.

During the Webinar we present S4GA solution for international airports that are:

  • under runway rehabilitation works
  • struggling with an unreliable primary AGL
  • struggling with unreliable mains power supply.

For such cases, S4GA offers solar airfield lighting system – a cost-saving and cost-effective solution that operates 365 days on solar energy. 

Benefits of Solar Runway Lighting have been discussed during the Webinar:

  • quick installation
  • easy maintenance
  • availability 24/7
  • close to zero operational costs
  • compliance with ICAO / ADM

The Backup Runway Lighting for International Airports Webinar was hosted by Mr Łukasz Kornacki – S4GA Business Development Manager and Expert in Aviation Infrastructure.

This S4GA Webinar is dedicated to the installation and maintenance of Solar Airfield Lighting.

During the Webinar, we explain the main stages of installation of solar AGL and present the benefits of S4GA solar lighting solution. 

Total time required for installation, testing and commissioning of solar AGL are 20-30 working days. Maintenance of S4GA solar airfield lighting includes only cleaning solar panels and replacing the batteries when needed. Airport personnel is always notified in advance about upcoming maintenance by S4GA ALCMS.

S4GA provides full technical and after-sales support for its Customers. We provide onsite training for airport engineers, online training, video tutorials, manuals and technical specification documents.

The Installation and Maintenance of Solar Airfield Lighting Webinar was hosted by Mr Dmytro Kuczeruk – S4GA Business Development Manager.

This Webinar is dedicated to Control and Monitoring of S4GA Solar Airfield Lighting. During the Webinar we explain fundamental principles and differences between airfield lighting control in traditional wired systems (powered by 6.6A grid) and in S4GA wireless airfield lighting powered by solar energy. We also describe types of wireless networks and the benefits of using the S4GA Mesh type radio network.

A detailed overview of S4GA ALCMS is given later in this webinar. ALCMS is an Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring System designed to provide full remote control and monitoring of solar LED runway lighting from the TWR or maintenance room. S4GA ALCMS provides individual light status display that allows airport engineers to monitor the health of every lighting unit in the system. ALCMS also notifies engineers about upcoming maintenance (e.g. replacing batteries or cleaning solar panels) and reports about light failures. 

The Control and Monitoring of S4GA Airfield Lighting Webinar was hosted by Mr Łukasz Kornacki – S4GA Business Development Manager and expert in the Airfield Lighting Industry.

The webinar is dedicated to redundancy airfield lighting system and its benefits for high-traffic airports. 

As you will see, the main benefit of solar redundancy AGL  is saving money from cancelled flights caused by a sudden loss of runway illumination. During the webinar, real case studies of RWY lighting failures were presented where airport financial losses from such emergencies reached $ 250.000 – 1.000.000 on average. By having S4GA solar-powered AGL installed on the runway, the airport could save this money.

Among many other benefits of redundancy AFL system should be mentioned: annual savings on electricity and reducing carbon emissions. These benefits were also presented and discussed at the webinar.

The Redundancy Airfield Lighting Webinar was hosted by  Mr  Łukasz Kornacki – S4GA Business Development Manager and expert in the Airfield Lighting Industry.

S4GA portable PAPI lights, portable runway & taxiway lights are supplied in a heavy-duty TrailerLearn more

Mobile PAPI lights, power banks and diesel generators are supplied in a heavy-duty trailers. S4GA Airfield Lighting Trailers are widely used by civil airports and military airbases as temporary or backup RWY lighting.  The trailer includes a complete set of portable remotely controlled airfield lights and PAPI system allowing to quickly illuminate airfield in accordance with ICAO regulations.

Airport PAPI Lights

PAPI lights (Precision Approach Path Indicators) is the part of runway illumination at airports, airfields, and airstrips. PAPI lights belong to approach lighting system of the airport. They help pilots to maintain the correct approach and warn about too low or too high approach.

Traditional PAPI lights are powered by 6.6A electrical grid, and connected to airfield lighting electrical network.

Portable PAPI Lights

In some cases, airports cannot use wired PAPI lights due to many reasons:

  • runway is not equipped with any illumination system
  • frequent switch off of PAPI lights due to unreliable power supply supply
  • maintenance of primary AGL
  • runway rehabilitation works

For such cases, the airport uses S4GA portable PAPI lights that are independent of the MAINS power grid. Mobile PAPI lights are easily transportable and can be used on different airfields.

Portable Runway End Identifier Light

SP-401 Runway end identifier light (REIL, also RTIL – runway threshold identification light) is a white flashing unidirectional light which is used to indicate approach end of a particular runway. S4GA portable REIL lights are applicable for all types of runways as temporary or backup runway lights.

SP-401 portable RTIL is equipped with energy-efficient LED optics and a large power bank. Power bank consists of two standard type replaceable batteries and provides up to 15 days of operations without recharging.
