Hero is a versatile reusable marking tool employing multi-directional bright light flashes and a ~130dB tone sound which can be seen and heard over considerable distance. It is compact, extremely rugged, and able to withstand deployment from and moving vehicles. Designed in partnership with DEA officers to mark ground objects of interest from airborne platforms, Hero is deployed as part of our ongoing war against illegal drug trafficking.
When activated, the Hero first emits a constant sound and rapid light flashes for maximum affect. After sixty seconds, Hero begins emitting a single light flash per second and constant beeping sound for ease in location and recovery.
The watertight Hero main body is made of high-strength nylon housing with molded impact bumpers on each end able to withstand multiple deployments. All the electronic controls are sealed within the device ensuring trouble free operation in a variety of environments. With Hero's battery removed, this device is no longer operational and safe to carry onboard civilian transport without any special permitting or handling.
