combines the helmet‐mounted, multi‐function overt/covert personnel marking
functions of the HEL-STAR 6® with
advanced Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) capabilities into a single unit.
Developed in close
coordination with SOF users, HEL‐STAR F²® provides active IFF
interrogation acquisition, response, and alert capabilities when interrogated
by specified military targeting/illuminator lasers.
The battlefield is an ever
changing platform with many moving pieces. While elements maneuver through the
fight, the HEL-STAR F²® response helps ensure that others can identify you as a
Friendly during high risk periods. When interrogated by specified military
lasers, HEL-STAR F² interprets the signal and alerts against friendly fire.
provides more than a full hemisphere of line‐of‐sight sensitivity to incoming
laser interrogations and has been verified in formal ground testing in excess
of 800 meters.
includes the four marking functions of the HEL-STAR 6® with
two separate operating modes (e.g. overt and covert). User-defined
functions are available in White, Green, Blue, Red, Amber and IR. The user can
select custom combinations of color/emissions, steady or flashing operation,
and various intensity levels.
HEL‐STAR F²® exceeds
the FAA 3‐statue mile visibility requirement in the white/strobe
mode. It is shock and vibration resistant, dustproof and has been tested
waterproof in open sea conditions to 130 fsw and successfully tested in the
laboratory to 300 ft.
The ability to wirelessly
re-program any or all of the four marker functions in the field is available
with the optional Programming Interface Module or PIM.
F²® is a supplemental device intended to identify and confirm
a Friendly combatant. It is not as a substitute for standing rules
of engagement, and should not be used as the sole determinant for engagement of
a combatant that is non-responsive to laser interrogation.
