Adding New Functions to the Remote Airfield.

Abstract—There are many remote airfields that are not
connected to the power grid. Providing adequate lighting to
these airfields is necessary and challenging. The Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) has sponsored a research project,
Remote Airfield Lighting Systems (RALS), through the Center
for General Aviation Research (CGAR). The findings from the
RALS research specified a light that had low power needs and
a color/intensity to meet the requirements for airfield identification
and landing. To make these lights more appropriate
to wide spread applications, the research team is conducting
an exemplary operational test. In this paper, we discuss the
new functions added to these lights for the operational test,
including both automatically/remotely switching on/off the
lights and smart charging of the batteries using solar panels
under the control of a microcontroller. In addition, we consider
future new functions such as low cost pilot controlled lighting
as well as wireless networking for health monitoring and
controlling of the lighting system. These new functions can
greatly improve the convenience of the usage of RALS while
keeping the same low cost.
Index Terms—Runway lighting, Solar charging, Remote
control, Pilot-controlled lighting, Portable LED light, Embedded
system, ZigBee applications.
