Oxley Sets the Standard for LED Lighting in New Generation Armour

Oxley Developments is setting the standard for intelligent lighting on the latest generation of armoured support vehicles for UK forces.

Oxley is currently supplying LED internal crew compartment lighting for the General Dynamics Force Protection Foxhound light protected patrol vehicle.

Foxhound is equipped with intelligent internal lights – intelligent by design and intelligent in application.  In physical terms the LED technology means they are very low profile – giving more headroom for the soldiers travelling in the vehicle.  As back door opens the light goes from white down to red – NVIS friendly capability in a single compact unit.

The Oxley DC Combi Light

The DC Combi light has a rugged design which provides excellent resistance to shock and vibration and provides high reliability in the field.  The light is a ‘fit and forget solution’ as there is no requirement to replace bulbs or tubes and it has a MTBF of over 50,000 hours.

Oxley is also developing prototype lighting solutions for the General Dynamics Scout SV.  This includes interior DC Combi dual mode crew lighting and the Gooseneck LED task light designed and manufactured to meet LED Defence Standard 59-411, and Land Class A and B EMC benchmark for UK military equipment.

The Oxley Gooseneck is flexible and dimmable and incorporates state of the art LED technology to provide a rugged task light, the light is designed with high quality components to provide a high vibration and shock proof construction for reliability in the field. The light has a secondary colour function with an NVIS friendly option available for operations with night vision goggles.

Peter Cotterill, Managing Director for Oxley Developments commented: “We are delighted to be involved in the development of lighting solutions for the new generation of UK armoured vehicles.  We source the highest quality LEDs from specialist manufacturers, but what makes our equipment stand out is the integration of those LEDs into specialist systems designed for military vehicles.

“That means not simply meeting the spec but giving the customer and user the benefit of industry leading heat sink technology, meeting the most rigorous EMC and sealing qualifications and complying with stringent Military DEF standards.”

Oxley will be displaying the new DC Combi and the Gooseneck light on Stand S3-232 at DSEI, which runs from 10-13 September at ExCel, London.
