Abstract:

The arctic test of radioluminescent RL lighting was conducted on respond to the Alaskan Air Command AAC mission requirement for a self-sustaining airfield light system suitable for arctic deployment. The test showed durability and dependability of tritium lights. It also showed the system, as now designed, can support the operations of small, slow-moving type aircraft. For larger, faster-moving aircraft the lights offer only marginal performance and would have to be supported with other lighting aids to be totally acceptable. Author
