Over 45 years ago, Spectrolab recognized another important use for its high-intensity lighting technology - airborne and land-based searchlight systems:

Nightsun® XP IR LED

Spectrolab’s flagship Searchlight model introduces new Infrared (IR) LED technology into a sleek aerodynamic package.   The new IR LED Ring offers infrared illumination for use with Night Vision Goggles (NVG’s).  A ring of high power IR LED’s offer wide or narrow focus modes while reducing power consumption by 79% and weight by 20% (compared to our original IFCO filter configuration)...

Nightsun® XP
Spectrolab's flagship Searchlight model introduces new technology into a more aerodynamic package. The XP makes use of software to adjust slew rate, keep-out zones, stow position as well as cage position and for linking to some of the most widely used camera systems...
SX-16 Nightsun® IFCO Enhanced
The Enhanced version of our In Flight Change Over (IFCO) Searchlight provides upgrades to the Cooling Blower, Focus mechanism, Hour-meter for lamp ON life, a new Reflector coating that garners a 20% increase in candlepower (when not using the IFCO Hood) and also a Lamp OFF Switch on the Control Box...
SX-16 Nightsun® IFCO
The In-Flight Change Over (IFCO) SX-16 allows for multi-role mission capability. Spectrolab has a variety of filters available for the IFCO Hood with the most common being the infrared filter used in conjunction with night vision systems...
SX-16 Nightsun® Enhanced 
The Enhanced version of our benchmark Searchlight provides upgrades to the Cooling Blower, Focus mechanism, Hour-meter for lamp ON life, a new Reflector coating that garners a 20% increase in candlepower and...
SX-16 Nightsun®
The SX-16 is designed with the intent of providing a mobile, high-intensity light source for a variety of applications. It has been used on over 30 different airframes over the course of its lifetime. Thanks to our valued customers, the SX-16 enjoys the distinction of being chosen as the number one helicopter Searchlight...
SX-16 Nightsun® E/P
The SX-16E was designed, much as the SX-16 Nightsun®, for departments that require a high-intensity mobile light source. The SX-16E uses the same 1600 Watt Xenon Lamp but is able to provide up to 100 million candlepower due to the larger Reflector assembly. The ability to provide more candlepower is present even with the same power requirement as the SX-16 Nightsun®...
SX-16 Nightsun® Enhanced Gimbal
The Enhanced Nightsun® Gimbal Assembly now incorporates a unibody Arm that has integrated reinforcements that eliminate the need for a service-life limit. The Gimbal Arm also incorporates ...
SX-7 Starsun Searchlight System

Spectrolab is pleased to introduce the new SX-7 Starsun Searchlight System.  This new model has been developed based on the SX-5 Starburst footprint, while capturing the enhanced features and performance characteristics of the SX-16 Nightsun®...

SX-5 Starburst
Our SX-5 Starburst encompasses the same versatility and capacity as the SX-16, but does so in a smaller package that is ideal for applications wherein weight is a factor. The smaller dimension envelope also makes this the ideal Searchlight for use in low-slung applications where the ground clearance is not ideal for the larger Searchlight...
SpectroLink
SpectroLink is an integrated searchlight to camera digital linking system. SpectroLink uses digital encoders for precise positioning of the searchlight to a linked thermal imager or video camera system. This eliminates the need for after-market modifications to any searchlight components and...
