Several years ago, LED technology transformed airfield ground lighting. Its adoption has since been rapid and unstoppable as airports reap the rewards of substantially lower energy costs, ultra-long lamp life, high-quality output and much faster response times compared to the conventional halogen lighting. Build a safer, lower cost airfield. Today, we stand on the threshold of a further transformation as advanced control systems build on the capabilities of LED lighting and other technologies to create the intelligent airfield.
