Abstract
The SHOT Shelter Lighting System (SLS) is an outstanding solution to the current problematic mobile fluorescent lighting fixtures. The SLS is a “systems approach” providing 700 lumens or more of adjustable illumination for battlefield shelters in a package that is robust, transportable and reliable. The SLS is an ideal system for deployed Medical or Command/Control structures requiring high intensity, uniform lighting. This system can operate from a wide range of AC or DC input power including, solar (photovoltaic), AC generator, vehicular, stationary, fuel cell or battery. In addition, the system is designed to provide uninterruptible power via an internal secondary battery backup circuit. The system consists of a Power Controller Unit and a Flexible Illuminator Assembly (FIA). The FIA is a blanket or field of gently diffused Light Emitting Diodes which not only provide superb lighting, but can also be stored and transported within the structure, eliminating the substantial logistic issues common with fragile and inflexible fluorescent systems. For those applications not requiring a 700 lumen light source, the FIA can be constructed to support lower intensity general purpose needs. The FIA can also be configured as a drop-in replacement for permanent, removable, underwater and other mission critical fixture applications.
