Past, Present, and Future Trends of Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring Systems
Past, Present, and Future Trends of Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring Systems
Ever since the invention of powered human flight, there has been a need to provide places for these flying machines to take off and land. As technology advanced, the need for an aircraft to land in less than optimal daylight conditions led to the integration of lighting on the airfield. This, now, required the ability to turn these lights on when needed and off when not, leading to the creation of the Airfield Lighting Control System.
