German Air Force – a Demanding mILITARY CustomerS4GA Portable Light German Airforce

The German Air Force is the branch of the Bundeswehr – the armed forces of Germany. It is the third-largest airforce in the European Union and one of the most demanding military customers in the World. All acquisitions and procurements for Bundeswehr are regulated by NATO standards.

In recent years Chief Command invested in upgrading military equipment for German Air Forces. One of the procurements was a portable emergency airfield lighting system to support night operations.


Solutions presented to the German military had to be compliant with both civil and military aviation regulations – ICAO, FAA, NATO, EASA. It means that every supplier who wants to deal with the German Air Force had to provide the highest quality products and full compliance with aviation and military standards.

Portable airfield lighting products used by the German Army previously did not meet their expectations in terms of quality and performance. Thus, the challenge was to find a technology that would be more reliable, more long-lasting, certified, and compliant with NATO STANAG requirements and European aviation standards.
