30+ years experience with the Royal Australian Navy
Versalux Marine is at the forefront of innovative and intelligent lighting systems for Defence, with products currently installed on 14 Navy Platforms, and an estimated market share of 60-70 per cent.
We are the exclusive partner of Glamox/Aqua Signal products in Australia and New Zealand, with the capability to develop and Australianise reliable and affordable products that meet the stringent standards and requirements of the Navy – a clear competitive advantage.
We are also working in collaboration with world-leading researchers on human-focused lighting solutions, determining what type of lighting will help to promote alertness, productivity and safety in the workplace, and applying these science-driven solutions to our designs. Considering that the Royal Australian Navy’s workplace consists of battle-ready ships and submarines, and that a lot of emphasis is placed upon the alertness, safety and productivity of the marines who operate these vessels, our human-focused lighting specifications really do put us ahead of the industry.
Read about two of our most recent major successes involving Navy vessels:
- Securing a bright future for the Navy’s ANZAC-Frigates
- New lighting systems for Navy Offshore Patrol Vessels
ANLS – Advanced Naval Lighting System
The Advanced Naval Lighting System (ANLS) represents the solution for a complete ship illumination consisting of indoor and outdoor lighting as well as signal and navigation lights. The modular approach of the ANLS matches with latest planning of a flexible and modular ship design concept. The ANLS concept provides the most flexible and future save lighting solution in the market. Understanding of ergonomic aspects, capabilities of the human eye in cooperation with hormone management of the body the ANLS provides alert lighting to improve work efficiency and safety and takes care of the human factors for the submariners.
ASLS – Advanced Submarine Lighting
The Advanced Submarine Lighting System (ASLS) is a modular lighting system especially designed for use on-board of submarines. It is a a reliable, economic lighting solution which withstands the toughest submarine environmental requirements. This modular system enables various configurations for different requests on undersea vessels. At the same time the understanding of ergonomic aspects, capabilities of the human eye in cooperation with hormone management of the body is important and can be considered by ASLS. It provides alert lighting to improve work efficiency and safety and takes care of the human factors for the submariners.
HVLAS – Helicopter Visual Landing Aid System
The Helicopter Visual Landing Aid System (HVLAS) is a flexible modular design to match customized HVLAS requirements for all needs, all helicopter types and all operating modes (NVG Stage III, HIFR, VERTREP, etc.) including LED Glide Path Indicators, LED Horizon Reference Systems, LED Flood Lights as well as LED Flight Deck Lighting. For operation, the system is completed by Lighting Control Panels with integrated touch panel to monitor aviation weather, ship movement and wind limitations as well as to control helideck equipment (e.g. Refuelling, GPU and Fire Fighting). This Helicopter Integrated Monitoring & Control System (HCIMCS) offers a complete comprehensive NVG-compatible helideck system solution.
