A visual enhancement to airfield lighting

For over 60 years, boundary edge illumination has been limited to a single point of illumination

 

Directional Edge Identification

Enhanced Situational Awareness

Improved boundary recognition

A linear lighting segment provides an additional visual cue related to the orientation of the boundary or pavement edge.

Although subtle, from a distance the human brain can interpolate the actual boundary edge from this additional visual cue.

Overall situational awareness is improved by allowing the pavement boundaries to be recognized quickly and easily.
