Light-Emitting Diode airfield lighting systems

2 October 2012 | By John D. Bullough, Senior Scientist, Lighting Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Light-Emitting Diode (LED) airfield lighting is increasingly used at airports in the United States and abroad, largely because of the potential for this technology to produce substantial savings in terms of maintenance and energy costs1. Information about LED lighting systems in terms of performance, cost, and other operations issues is…


Technology innovation and advance LEDs for airfield lighting

8 December 2011 | By Jennifer Taylor, Lighting Research Centre, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, N.Y.

In the past two decades, the LED (light-emitting diode) has advanced to the point where it is now considered a key lighting technology, not only for its potential to save energy, reduce carbon emissions, and have a long service life, but also for its ability to be ‘tuned’ for optimal…


Transforming Airfield Lighting: The research into LED technology

1 October 2010 | By Jennifer Taylor, Lighting Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, N.Y.

Advanced, energy-efficient lighting is one key element of global research to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. In just the last decade, the light-emitting diode (LED) has progressed from a small indicator light to a complete lighting system able to illuminate spaces such as an entire parking lot. LEDs promise…
