Lightforce Group company Force Ordnance has seen a series of wins in the defence and law enforcement sectors with its world-renowned automotive and hunting lights being applied to illuminate the fields of battle.
“Over the past year, we have made significant inroads into defence and law enforcement with our lighting range and in doing so are spearheading an important sub-sector in Australian sovereign defence capability.”
Locally, the Australian Defence Force is currently trialling Lightforce infrared and white light combination HTX2 lights on its AEV patrol vehicles and is also relying on Force Ordnance to deliver customised lighting solutions for ADF specialist vehicles.
Other clients include Australian Customs & Border Protection who have fitted their 41-foot MMI Interceptor boats with Lightforce ML240mm lights, as well as a number of state police agency vehicles that have been fitted with infrared Striker lights.”
Lightforce’s Striker infrared light was developed using the same technology as commercial night-vision goggles and optical gear and offers an adjustable infrared 940nM beam.
Internationally, the company has entered into a trial with the armed forces of the Philippines for the provision of driving lights on military vehicles whilst in the US, several defence and police bodies are shining a brighter light on suspects thanks to the Adelaide-based manufacturer.
Lightforce is exhibiting at LAND FORCES on stand 2M13.
