Exterior Lighting Systems
Leading from the Inside Out
Exterior lighting is critical to the safe operation of aircraft. Heads Up Technologies provides customers with LED exterior lights to improve pilot situational awareness and reduce the potential of a collision. Highly reliable LED systems improve pilot visibility during critical phases of flight, with reduced energy consumption compared to traditional aircraft lighting technology.
Our expertise in exterior LED lighting is hard earned from our superior innovation and quality engineered LED Cabin Lighting Systems.
Heads Up offers full shipset exterior LED lighting systems including anti-collision lighting, flood, and landing lights, as well as navigation lights. Our solutions are lightweight and provide longevity and reliability in the toughest conditions such as high temperatures, electro-magnetic interference, vibrations, and shock resulting in reduced maintenance and operating costs over the life of the aircraft.
For nearly 35 years, Heads Up Technologies has innovated on exterior lighting. We’ve delivered over 25,000 exterior lights to our customers on 15 different aircraft programs.
Heads Up Innovation
Our LED landing lights use an array of high-power LEDs and custom optics. These rugged, highly reliable units put more light on target than similar incandescent lights. An integrated power supply with dim/flash functionality reduces weight and heat.
Tail Flood Lights
In addition to making your aircraft more visible at night, tail floodlights are a popular way to illuminate logos and create more nighttime ramp appeal.
Our high-power LEDs can provide the same brightness as conventional tail floodlights, but at a fraction of the weight and with considerably less power consumption.
Wing Inspection Lights
We offer a family of wing inspection lights that produce a tight beam of light at the leading edge of the wing to help pilots identify ice formation. High-power LEDs, coupled with precision optics, result in a consistent beam aiming angle, so no adjustment is necessary. This reduces installation labor and improves reliability.
We offer a variety of color temperatures and brightness options. Our light-weight water-proof housing hides discretely under each step lighting the step below it.
Stair Step Lighting
Emergency egress requires exterior lighting to illuminate the path for passengers to exit onto the wings and see the path below them.
Often these lights are mounted in high vibration locations, unsuitable for incandescent bulbs. Our ruggedized LEDs are completely sealed in optically clear silicone to ensure protection from the harsh environment.
