Trakka Corp/Eurocopter sign contract

Trakka Corp, a leading manufacturer of high intensity searchlight technology, has recently signed a contract as a certified Supplier to Eurocopter to supply its innovative Trakkabeam® A800 searchlight to the helicopter giant worldwide.

"This contract is the direct result of an enormous investment in man-hours and over 24 months from both Eurocopter and Trakka Corp. At the onset, we agreed to offer a unique solution for high intensity searchlights by addressing the needs of the market and integrating the product into the Eurocopter airframes," said Peter Rudaizky, CEO of Trakka. "This collaboration enables Eurocopter to now offer its customers a product which expands their mission capabilities and is built to world class certification standards and quality benchmarks."

Trakka Corp's products have been rated among the highest in the industry for customer satisfaction and MTBF and are supported by a global network of distribution and FAR 145 Service Centres

Innovative products for a vibrant market

Industry leading optics of the Trakkabeam® searchlight delivers a more intense and consistent beam on the target, using significantly less power than its competitors. The uniform intensity across the entire beam spot provides extremely powerful, consistent, and effective illumination which eliminates the black hole and hot spots seen at the centre of conventional searchlight beams.

The Trakkabeam® combines its superior beam performance with an industry-first internal filter wheel which provides seamless switching between visible light modes to covert IR and other mission-critical filter options – all easily controlled from inside the cockpit. These unique features have given the A800 the highest quality and performance ratings of any searchlight and the most versatile multi-mission capability.

Within an ever-changing and vibrant market, Trakka has established itself as the leading player internationally.

In addition to its superb optics and industry-first internal filtering Trakkabeam delivers a searchlight which:

• Requires less input energy – more reserve power for critical aircraft operations

• Is smaller and lighter than its competitors

• Starts and restarts instantly without usage restrictions

• Has a superior aerodynamic profile

• Has built–in slave capability for thermal imaging cameras, moving maps, and more

• Doesn't shake or vibrate in flight

• Is the only searchlight fully DO 160E tested and qualified

• Is DO 160F and DO 178 compliant
