Signal and Illumination Pyrotechnics

SIGNAL & ILLUMINATION PYROTECHNICS

 

Communication between combat forces and battlefield reconnaissance at night is an essential element in operation. Our scope of products for signal and illumination provide effective means for said purpose.

WesCom Defence uses automated production techniques to ensure not only high cost effectiveness but also reliable quality products.

Reconnaissance of ground forces during night operations is a prerequisite. Parachute Illumination Cartridges/Rockets provide appropriate visibility during missions at night. Besides the illumination in the visual range, infra-red illumination flares enhance the capability of night vision goggles. Signal Flares in a variety of colors and configurations provide also an appropriate means of communication on the battle field.
