Trakka Searchlight chosen for CHP Fleet


Trakka, April 03, 2015 - Moorabbin, Australia – Trakkacorp Pty Ltd is proud to announce the first Trakkabeam A800 Searchlight installation and delivery for the new Californian Highway Patrol AS350 fleet.

This marks the first delivery of fifteen new AS350’s from Airbus USA for CHP. Airbus has collaborated with Hangar One, a leading MRO based in California, for integration and delivery of these new Searchlight systems.

The A800 searchlight is a valuable enhancement for the new CHP helicopters and its multi-mission requirements. CHP’s missions range from Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue missions, Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and services. The A800 compliments the AS350’s mission equipment due to its unique multi-mission capabilities and boasts the highest level of testing and qualification of any searchlight, along with an optically enhanced uniform beam, internal multi-colored filter system, and fast/smooth slaving system, which all combine to give the operator superior helicopter searchlight performance. CHP chose the A800 Mark II version for this fleet of aircraft. In addition to the standard features of the A800, the A800 MKII feature’s the ability to link into the moving map and/or the EO/IR sensor, and also some new operational features commissioned by CHP, such as variable slew from the cyclic controls.

About the A800 Trakkabeam Searchlight

The Trakkabeam searchlight is a paradigm shift in engineering and design which has eliminated the inefficiencies of traditional searchlight technology. Trakka has concentrated on producing a system that achieves maximum efficiency and visibility, in a variety of operational situations.

The Trakkabeam has become the benchmark in aviation searchlight technology, due to its sleek, aerodynamic characteristics, low power draw, low weight, superior mission functionality and reliability and is used internationally by leading ground and airborne law enforcement, security forces, as well as search and rescue agencies, to strengthen their capability to achieve mission objectives.

Its unique internally integrated filter wheel enables the installation of a range of spectral light filters including infrared, visible red and amber. This creates unparalleled visibility and mission capability during night-time operations, in moist or foggy conditions, and during NVG operations. The advanced optics, only available with the Trakkabeam, also makes the searchlight far more efficient than any other on the market, resulting in the use of an 800W lamp whilst still achieving outstanding performance and range.
