HEL-STAR 6® Gen III is the latest in the series of HEL-STAR marker lights designed specifically for helmetmounting for airborne, MFF, and ground tactical operations. Gen III matches the fit and function of earlier models while providing a streamlined package design and advanced electronics.
Available in tan or black. HEL-STAR 6® Gen III continues to provide up to four user-defined functions in two selectable operating modes in virtually any combination of white, green, blue, red, and IR, each in either steady, flashing or IFF coded operation. Field reprogramming option is available upon request. Requires the purchase of a Programming Interface Module (PIM).
Safety - The unique battery access design provides a curved profile on all sides, minimizing snag hazard. Velcro® attachment provides emergency peel-away from helmet to reduce potential for snag-related injury.
Versatility - Up to four user-defined functions are available in a range of visible colors and IR signals, either flashing, coded or steady.
Visibility - Omni-directional. Intensities can be scaled up or down for special requirements. White flash exceeds FAA 3-statute mile requirements.
Simple, Secure Operation - Switches are designed for positive operation by a gloved-hand, in the blind, with the helmet donned. Mode selection switch design options provide operational flexibility or strong security between overt and covert operating modes.
Operating Extremes - HEL-STAR 6® Gen III is shock and vibration resistant, dustproof and open sea waterproof to 130 fsw (laboratory 300+ feet).
Status Confirmation - Switch design provides visual and tactile confirmation of ON/OFF and operating status with no guesswork; visual confirmation prevents inadvertent battery discharge in the IR operating mode.
Easy Battery Replacement - The single CR123 cell can be replaced in the field, quickly, without special tools.
Field Reprogramming - Color, flash rate, and light intensity can be reprogrammed with a wireless handheld device (PIM). A default feature returns the unit back to original factory settings.

Good functional light. Bought this as a back up to one issued. Will say that if you plan to Velcro to helmet get the attach patch to go with it. The battery compartment takes up a considerable amount of space from the surface area and my partner the other week lost his 3 times banging into the interior of a CH-46.
