HEL-STAR 6® Gen III+ is the latest in the series of HEL-STAR 6® marker lights designed specifically for helmetmounting for airborne, MFF, and ground tactical operations.
Gen III+ has all of the features of the Gen III in an updated, streamlined package. Available in tan or black. HEL-STAR 6® continues to provide four user-defined functions in two selectable operating modes in a 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® 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.
Great product and fast shipping. HCC is becoming my go-to for a lot of my gear.
My experience was excellent Michael was great!
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.
