The latest generation HEL-STAR 4® is a two-function marker light comprising a low profile waterproof electronics/battery module and a flexible LED lighting strip. HEL-STAR 4® was specifically developed as a snag-free, helmet mounted light for HAHO/HALO operations and has since proven valuable for other special operations within Search & Rescue, LE, and DHS.
The Velcro® attachment provides reliable mounting with a built-in breakaway feature in case the device is hit by a foreign object or a parachute riser. Two detented sliding switches provide ON/OFF and two user-defined operating functions in any combination of White, Green or IR signals – steady or flashing. IFF capabilities are enhanced by flexible programming, featuring unique, user-defined flash rates or codes. The CR123 lithium battery is field-replaceable and affords long life and excellent cold temperature operation. HEL-STAR 4® was designed for easy operation with gloved hands in the blind.
Safety - Velcro interface provides an emergency peel-away feature—reducing potential for injury caused by interference with parachute risers.
Security - Positive visual and tactile confirmation of ON/OFF and function status. One touch turns the unit OFF. Positive confirmation of OFF avoids inadvertent ON status in the IR mode.
Versatility - Three operating functions are provided with a choice of white, green or IR signals—flashing or steady. The electronics/battery compartment is waterproof to at least 16 feet.
Simplicity - The tactile sliding switches can be operated with a gloved-hand in the blind with the helmet donned.
Long Life / Extreme Conditions - Powered by a field-replaceable lithium 123 cell for long life and excellent cold temperature operation.
Waterproof—For temporary exposure to depths of 18’. Not intended for extended underwater use.
