Currently, the Air Force uses deployable light carts that provide ground-level flightline illumination, task lighting for aircraft maintenance and troubleshooting, as well as perimeter lighting to secure deployed and contingency locations.
CTC will modernize the existing light cart with upgraded technologies and control strategies for improved energy efficiency and reduced reduced maintenance and energy costs.
The new Advanced Flightline Power and Light System developed by CTC will incorporate energy-efficient lighting, energy storage and various modes of operation.
