Tactical Flashlights and Lighting Techniques are Important to US Military Combat Operations Overseas

By Edited Feb 2, 2016 0 0

The simplicity of light has been a drawing board for new ideals and inventions since Thomas Edison's first light bulb in 1879. Developing and troubleshooting new and innovative ways to house the bulb, the technologists of our country are unsurpassable. From the simplicity of changing a light bulb of a lamp in a barracks room to seeing with night vision goggles (via Einstein's quantum theory) in the zone of battle or field training, our military utilizes these innovations each and every day with many of the tasks they perform in an up-tempo combat operation environment.

Flashlights are common items, yet they are continuously developed for a diversification of uses. With an assortment of bulb types and styles, flashlights are capable of putting out unfathomable amounts of light while being cased in the smallest of contraptions. Durability is a key factor when it comes to our armed forces, and they use nothing but the best of products for their intensive and often lengthy shifts of work. Being involved in a military operation, the men and women of our service branches may have to work through the darkest of nights maneuvering through cities and towns or miles of nothing but sand while performing specific tasks imperative to their mission operation. If they are operating in a place that they are unfamiliar with, the difference between life and death could be dependent upon the durability of a simple flashlight. Adorned with clips, key rings and pouches, it is easy for our service members to keep their flashlights close by their side for ready use.

Some producers of tactical flashlights have taken the next step in the advancement of light production and have invented a light that will allow military personnel or even hunters to take intricate notice of his or her surroundings while observing objects up to 70 meters away, and it will not disturb animals if they happen to be in the area. For example, in the Middle Eastern Combat theatres of Iraq and Afghanistan, if our military is traveling at night and come across camels, the camels will not notice this particular light, and our men and women in camouflage, can inspect the area and secure it from the enemy. If our men and women are noticed by the enemy, this 3-watt green light can be used as a personal defense mechanism, because it is extremely difficult for humans to look directly into. Attempting to look directly into a light like this, for extended periods of time, could most certainly lead to irreversible vision impairment or damage.

As you can see, being able to see in the night is very important for all military and tactical operations. Not only are there tactical flashlights for night vision particularly, there are also flashlights that can be worn on the head, on a key chain and can be placed on vehicles as well. It is evident that the engineers of lighting products have their work cut out for them. With a a variety of tactical gear suppliers and companies available to you on Cyberspace, you can keep up to date with the latest and newest inventions of these lighting techniques and be the first to step up your game when it comes to having the newest, and most innovative, items on hand.

Remember, when purchasing tactical flashlights, to buy batteries and protective tactical pouches too!
