NAVY VESSELS

OUR WORK WITH
NAVY AND MILITARY PROJECTS

Over the years the Lopolight team has worked with a large number of Navy, Military and SAR projects, each with their own set of requirements and challenges.

Extreme environmental demands, such as immunity to 1500V/m Radar, 50G shock, 65 bar pressure, stealth design or just tamper proof are features that we master. We take the otherwise illegal dimmable navigation light as for granted in this field – but add that we still can monitor it in its dimmed state – even with the ice-class defroster active!

FROM THE BEGINNING
Lopolight has been supplying Navies with rugged navigation lights, starting with very fast small craft for special forces, that were in need for something that can take the extreme vibration and water pressure from high speed close to the water

All special Navy lights are in our product range, such as Deceptive lighting, IR follow-me lights, Blue Convoy lights, Wake lights, MOB signaling systems, Obstruction lights, Waterline security lights, Perimeter lights plus many unique fittings are available. That our lights are NVIS/NVG is in the DNA of every product.

SPECIAL PROJECTS
Several projects with autonomous vessels allow us to add that we have that in hand. The only military field where we come up short is in the air. Below you will find a few examples of our work.

With NATO/OTAN manufacturer registration, strong and surveyed quality management systems and with a good track record of honoring confidentiality and signed NDA’s we are ready accept your challenge.

OUR WORK WITH
WARSHIPS

Lopolight offers a complete tried and tested range of Navy lights, both navigation, task and special lights, all with dimming option, whilst maintaining a fully monitored status , with intelligent ice-class option. Rugged compact construction, good for stealth applications. Best in class EMI/EMC. Strong reference list.

OUR WORK WITH
AUTONOMOUS VESSELS

With installations on several autonomous Navy vessels around the world Lopolight is at the frontier of this field. The control and monitoring solutions we offer are flexible and can be configured to interface to the onboard systems in several ways such as over a serial communications interface or via Modbus TCP/IP.

OUR WORK WITH
ARMY TUGS & LANDING CRAFT

The small form factor and extreme ruggedness makes the Lopolight range a perfect fit for smaller vessels in the army and navy contingent. The requirement for ultra-compact control and monitoring equipment is something we master. Having equipped LCVP’s, LCU’s and even MWT’s for multiple counties armies and navies we have all the lights you would need.

OUR WORK WITH
PATROL
BOATS

We offer complete solutions for the smallest inflatable boat that needs correct and reliable nav lights, even with its own battery pack, all the way up to patrol vessels that have equipment requirement similar to a ship but limited space. The Navies in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, UK, USA, Singapore and many others are equipping their vessels with the robust Lopolight navigation lights.

OUR WORK WITH
WARSHIPS

The primary task of the navigation light system is to provide safety, and no one knows that better than the team at Lopolight. However, a warship needs more, the lights we install on warships are designed to meet the unique requirements, such as dimmability – whilst remaining in control. >>

UNIQUE SOLUTIONS 
The Arctic area is increasingly contested and therefore lights that work when you need them – already de-iced – are part of our offering. 

The EMC signature is close to non-existent, it will not be a Lopolight that gives your position away or degrades your AIS & VHF signals.

Special task lights, IR lights, wake lights and combinations are available.

Due to the compact form factor and the ability to combine lights on the same location the Lopolight Navigation lights makes the installation of deceptive lighting both possible and attractive.

FLEXIBILITY IS THE KEY
As project management, design and production are housed in the same building at Lopolight, we offer flexibility in the product design to fit your requirements – and with a quick turn-around.

OUR WORK WITH
AUTONOMOUS VESSELS

Lopolight has been involved with several autonomous vessel projects such as conversions from manned to unmanned, small minesweeper vessels or even autonomous harbor patrol vessels. We see the special demands for these vessels in 2 areas: First, the lights onboard should possess the necessary logic, like automatic switch over between primary and backup lights, and automatic switch over of power source from the primary to the backup – and inform the control center about such incidents, but without the need of intervention. Even the use of the optional built-in defroster system is automatic.

Secondly, we need to provide a control and monitoring solution that is flexible and can be configured to interface to the onboard or shore-based systems in several ways such as over a serial communications interface, N2KView or via Modbus TCP/IP, while at the same be ready for manned operation with onboard controls.
