Personal Light Marker For The Prevention of Friendly Fire Incidents


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Meprolight
: 23 March, 2010  (New Product)
Infrared identification device from Meprolight can be worn on the back or mounted on the helmet to emit and identification marker to prevent the wearer from becoming a victim to friendly fire
Meprolight has announced Mepro LIR – a personal marker designed specifically as an individual identification device for fratricide prevention. The device’s unique design makes it both easy and safe to operate.

Mepro LIR was designed in response to requests by special military and police units for an infrared identification device. The device is resistant to shock, water and most oil-based solutions. Since Mepro LIR is placed on the back, or the rear of the helmet, it includes a digital control panel that is connected to the marking unit via a wire. The panel enables the user to see any malfunction, as well as information about the light intensity and illumination panel. Mepro LIR is the only personal marker of this kind that includes a personal control panel.

“Friendly fire incidents are a main concern of military and law enforcement special forces,” said Golan Kalimi, Meprolight’s Vice President of Marketing. “There is a growing need for unique identification devices that are easy to use. Mepro LIR is the ultimate solution for this issue, even in close quarter combat situations.”

The signal is emitted by high-power infrared light-emitting diodes (LED) at a wavelength that cannot be detected by uanaided human eye. When viewed through night vision systems, the IR light can be seen at long ranges.

Mepro LIR, which complies with Mil-Spec requirements, is available in two models:

- SWAT Model – with a single IR element usually placed on the back, behind the shoulder.

- Military Model – two elements, one in front and the other on the rear of the helmet. The rear element is capable of working in a visible range, usually yellow (other colours available).

Mepro LIR is microprocessor controlled and has several models of operation: steady or multiple IR flashing modes, as well as visible flashing. The device has a digital, illuminated panel that shows each selected mode by an illuminated letter or number. Low battery conditions, as well as any detected malfunctions, are also displayed on the panel.
