TrakkaBeam – Light Years Ahead
The TrakkaBeam searchlight represents a complete – and positive – turnaround in searchlight engineering and design. Our amazing TrakkaBeam completely eliminates the legacy issues and inefficiencies of traditional searchlight technology. TrakkaBeam’s unique design and rugged construction guarantee the highest proven Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) in the industry. With its sleek, aerodynamic styling, low power draw, low weight, superior mission functionality and reliability, TrakkaBeam has become the enviable benchmark in aviation searchlight performance. Right around the globe, airborne, ground and maritime law enforcement, security, search and rescue and other agencies all rely on the TrakkaBeam searchlight system to achieve their critical mission objectives.

Superior beam, superb clarity
TrakkaBeam is unique in its ability to deliver a high-powered, uniform beam of light that eliminates black holes and fading, and ensures optimum clarity and cover for all types of tracking and surveillance. Effective collimation (making the beam more coherent) and reduction of stray light are achieved by precision designed refractive optical elements in front of the arc source. This eliminates the black holes that are produced by traditional reflector-based lamps, and enables the TrakkaBeam to consistently deliver effective uniform edge-to-edge illumination, reducing the incidence of “lost targets” and incomplete or failed missions.
The TrakkaBeam includes the industry’s only in-flight, multi-filter solution. From inside the cockpit, up to six different filters can be activated at the touch of a button. Filters can range from extremely covert infrared to ultra-violet. Different filter options reduce glare from fog or white sand, or can enhance natural colour in the target field, or can be used for close-in hoist work without impairing ground crew night vision. This ingenious internal design reduces bulk and weight, guards against costly future maintenance, and enhances mission capability and versatility.
DO-160F tried and tested
The TrakkaBeam A800 system has been rigorously tested and certified to DO-160F standards by internationally recognized laboratories in the U.S., Germany and Australia. Designed to ensure trouble free operation from installation through the life of the system, critical tests for product robustness and reliability are undertaken including:
- lightning strike
- AF and RF susceptibility
- EMI and EMC
A truly mean performer
TrakkaBeam offers the highest proven MTBF (mean time between failure) in the industry. Backed with a comprehensive warranty, this makes our systems the most advanced and cost effective range of searchlights on the market.
