Airfield Lighting System (EALS) is a runway lighting system
designed to be quickly installed at contingency airfields
or at other locations that need temporary airfield lighting.
When installed, it provides runway edge lighting, approach
lighting, threshold/end lighting, taxiway lighting, visual
glide slope indication, Distance-To-Go (DTG) marker lighting,
and obstruction lighting.
The EALS can be installed and deployed on all types of surfaces
(e.g. sand, frozen earth, mud, ice, asphalt, and concrete)
and can light a Minimum Operating Strip (MOS) of up to 150
ft. by 10,000 ft. Installation of a 50 ft. by 5,000 ft. MOS
can be done in only 2-1/2 hours by a six person crew using
two general purpose vehicles.
