The Self-Illuminated Torch utilises green light to a brightness of 800µL providing practical illumination of an area of 100cm2. Brightness is not affected by temperature, humidity, altitude or operational plane.


Typical Applications

  • Infantry Night Aid: for use by mortar or light support weapon crews for reading target record charts, fuse or sight graduations and as a paralleling aid
  • Night Navigation Aid: to enable map or compass readings, taking reference points during night marches on a compass bearing etc
  • Aiming Point Light: for the alignment of infantry and light artillery weapons
  • Arc of Fire Markers: two Illuminated Torches can be used to delineate arcs of fire in front of gun emplacements and fire trenches
  • AFV fire control equipment illumination

Torches are self-illuminating, requiring no batteries, bulbs or secondary light source. They are suitable for use in hazardous atmospheres and will continue to operate normally in adverse environmental conditions, even when immersed in water. Markers are rated for operation in temperatures between -60°C and +70°C.


The Torch incorporates a ring and neck cord for easy carrying, handling and temporary fixing to support structures/pickets.


Physical Characteristics
Illumination is provided by a Betalight® fixed securely within the unit, an innovative gaseous tritium light source. Betalights® are self-illuminating light sources that provide absolute reliability throughout their service life of 15 years. They contain no moving parts and are maintenance-free. As the Torch is continuously illuminated throughout its operational life, an on-off switch is not required.


The inner housing is constructed of tough polycarbonate, the outer body and hinged front cover of black neoprene rubber. A nylon cord is attached to the fixing ring.
