Abstract: AURA Technologies proposes to create the next generation of LED lighting for the US Marine Corps. LED lighting offers significant advantages that have mainly focused on low power consumption. In the urgency to field the new power efficient LEDs, it was not known that the flicker from LEDs can cause headaches and the angle of view of the existing LED lighting is not optimized - meaning that more LEDs are needed to light the same area as a traditional florescent bulb. AURA Technologies LED design overcomes these and other obstacles and provides an optimized light source for the US Marine Corps.
Benefits: This is an optimized solution for LED lights in Marine Corps operating environments to meet all new and emerging Marines Corps lighting requirements. There are significant improvements over existing LED designs that will eliminate flicker (which can cause headaches) and improve ease of set-up and tear-down.
