The Cyalume stick: safe autonomous lighting that can be used for signaling and navigation
For effective search and rescue operations
Emergency signal: Carry out search and rescue operations with light sticks
Cyalume light sticks are often used for emergency signalling on hostile terrain. They are practical and easy to use for marking areas or routes in the event of an emergency evacuation. The different colours that are available also make it possible to color code the markings in the dark (red = dangerous area / green = clear area).
- Survival Kit: Fallen US Air Force pilots use SOS to locate themselves during Search and Rescue operations and these devices are visible within a 4.8 kilometer radius.
- Rescue lighting: The Personal Marker – PML, which can be activated with only one hand and can be attached to a lifejacket, is visible at more than 1 nautical mile or 1.6 kilometres for more than 8 hours.
- Liferaft markers: light sticks allow pilots whose aircraft has been shot down to report in an emergency.
- Emergency light that is easy to fit in a bag
Cyalume sticks are used as a discreet form of lighting
Light up identification
Cyalume sticks can also be used for reading cards discreetly, for example with the use of a Mini attached to the tip of the index finger or with a 15cm ChemLight fixed on a magnetic base. Using a directional khaki case also makes it possible to control the amount of light emitted by the stick by diffusing all or part of the illuminated surface.
Emergency light in 100% remote, autonomous and safe areas
- Extra backup light in a cockpit: US Air Force pilots position 1.5 Inch Mini light sticks at their fingertips so that they can have a reliable, low intensity light source to read cockpit avionics during night vision flights.
- Flashlight: Use a 4″ or 6″ glow stick as a safe flashlight by allowing it to emit light from the open side of the individual packaging of the stick.
- Emergency lighting in field hospitals: Attach LightShape circular or VisiPad rectangular markers on the entrance canvas and place 40cm white sticks in the pads in case of a power outage; use SEE Systems for fixed sites.
