INCA Multispectral Beacon

Provides Long Range Multispectral Combat Identification

The INCA Multispectral Beacon provides the rapidly identifiable combat ID crucial to tactical range extremes, such as rescue operations and situational awareness. Its multispectral emission covers the visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), short-wave infrared (SWIR), mid-wave infrared (MWIR), and long-wave infrared (LWIR) bands. When emitting in the thermal bands (i.e., MWIR and LWIR), the INCA beacon’s user-selected settings mean that it emits no visible signature and cannot be detected using night-vision imagers.

The INCA beacon’s strobe and blink rates also can be reprogrammed as your requirements change. Factory modifications can let you impart digital data codes directly on to the optical channels.
