The NVG Fireworm linear illuminated marking system with overt and covert modes of operation.
The NVG Fireworm was developed at the request of the UK MoD for a dismounted countermine project in 2006. Since that time it has has developed into the product we have today.
The flexible illuminated marking system has been designed and developed by LGI specifically to overcome the problem of highlighting areas of danger or marking a safe route, either overtly or covertly by day or night.
The illumination colour is highly visible at night and provides the safety and comfort factors, inherent in a clear constant reference point. The user can set the visual range in either overt or covert mode. The Fireworm is a night vision goggles compatible device, that does not have an adverse effect when using night vision goggles or other such devices.
Should the illumination material be cut or damaged whilst in use the illumination material can be easily repaired and returned to operational use with a few minutes.
NVG Fireworm marks a significant advance in capability over current marking methodology. This non IR system enables the user to switch between visible and covert mode where it employs “black Light” (visible only with Night Vision Goggles), working between the visible and IR Spectra, generating no heat and thus undetectable by thermal imaging devices.
To ensure the usability and maintainability requirements of operational equipment the NVG Fireworm has been put through its paces to ensure compliance with operational requirements. The equipment has been successfully tested and approved for operational service both on the ground and inflight. Release to service documents have been issued as well as NATO stock numbers.
