Mi-8AMTSH will be equipped with searchlights


According to Smirnov, “TSL-1600 is the only searchlight in Russia that was originally developed specifically for the aviation market in accordance with the requirements of the AR IAC and other organizations. TSL-1600 is installed on helicopters as an on-board controlled high-intensity light source. ”

The searchlight “possesses high light characteristics, which makes it possible to effectively carry out search and rescue, rescue operations, patrol, investigative, security measures. The searchlight can also be used for nighttime photo and video shooting, ”he noted.

“It is planned to equip the Mi-8-AMTSh-VA arctic helicopters with these lighting devices. The specialists of Kronstadt have already completed the adaptation of TSL-1600 to the conditions of the Far North ",
said Smirnov.

“In our own certified laboratory, we conducted tests for vibration stability, low and high temperatures (–60 ° С limit, –50 ° С working). The first searchlight adapted to the conditions of the Arctic has already been installed on board the Mi-8AMTSH-VA helicopter, ”he said.

    Only annoying, why TSL, and not TSL? Import substitution passed, or simply did not have time to replace the letters?

      Search and lighting floodlight TSL-1600 is designed for installation on aircraft as an onboard controlled high-intensity light source. The power of the xenon lamp is 1600 watts.
      increase
      "In a camouflage case, a French-made TSL-1600 search and lighting searchlight. It is forbidden to turn it on on the ground because the power is such that it simply burns out all nearby objects."


      TSL-1600 works in both visible and infrared ranges
      optical radiation. spotlight operation can be carried out
      in manual mode (from the operator’s remote control) and automatically - while
      target designation comes from an external device (for example, GOES;
      TDS-84, etc.).
      angular speeds of a turn of the gimbal suspension of a searchlight in
      horizontal and vertical planes up to 60 degrees / sec.
      The parameters of the radiation divergence can vary
      rum ranging from 4 ° to 20 °.
      Optionally, the spotlight can be supplemented by LED
      a driver that operates in the infrared (infrared
      red nozzle) together with night vision goggles. working
      wavelength of 850 nm. Power consumption when working in IR
      pose - no more than 50 watts.
      IR nozzle operates in narrow beam mode (divergence 20 °)
      and wide (divergence 40 °). Switch between modes
      nozzle operation is carried out from the operator panel. Range
      narrow beam detection - up to 1 km.

    That's nice, the flashlights can be hidden in the glove compartment. "The projector can also be used for night photography and video shooting," and I thought for a "selfie" ... lol

    The event is of course an epoch-making! Now the helicopter pilots will have to fly more carefully so as not to shake the light.))
    P.S. Back in 2014, American police helicopters tested this complex, and were pleased with the characteristics. soldier .

      Yes, there seems to be no spiral. Two contacts in an inert "gas", a galagenka or a fashionable xeonka. A dumb diode that is in Chinese lighters.
      In the photo, my favorite SCORPION, we have used 600 tons of dead raccoons.
      Ten years ago, we, the family, offered the Mi-8 for 25 t. Y / e. The truth is in a barely alive state. The repair came out at 250, plus permissions and generally under the green.
      So we decided to "train on cats" laughing -Gyrocar. Not expensive ...

    It seems to me that on all eights this spotlight should be an obligatory thing, and not just in the Arctic zone.

      The MPRF was always standing, quite a light for itself, blinded at night, God forbid, when landing, the hunters loved to go to the Urals (car) to spit - chase game, in fact, you could approach a lit hare and take it by the ears. . ".....

    It seems that they will
    And I’m also interested to know how many professions MI-8 has mastered? Has anyone counted?
    How universal this car was for M. Mil and his team - Class!
    Once again I order Google everything about Miles - such an extensive topic

      He would have reduced the noise of the engines, I don’t know the option with a fenistron, it seems, with an X-shaped tail rotor? They seem to be practicing for 35. This is a clapping sound.
      For Mi 8AMShT and 17SH, it is important. On "soft feet" and at night ...
      An expensive competitor to the EU 725 is much quieter, even in the daytime you notice when it is generally above your head. And on 8/17 you only turn your "head" around.

      My father, he put a headlamp with IL 18, although it is designed for 28, 412. In the 90s, he tried to punish someone with a high beam at night. Stupidity ... but okay. At 412, the headlights themselves dazzled great.
      Now she is farim, a night hunt.

        Truckers took landing gears from the turntables at Kamaz, 28 volts, at Kamaz 24, but there was enough punishment on the highway

          Our lantern from the front landing gear of the IL-18/20 chassis was upgraded to 12 volts, the radio operator of his father’s side, still didn’t go to Russia, lives next door. There is a Chinese 8 amp battery on the hunt.
          My brother had the first Kruzak 24 volt, a pancake of the year mid 90's.
