1. Why are they better than traditional pyrotechnic
||5-72 hours depending on product
||Locate Reflective material
||Long Duration - Easy
to locate source
|Short Duration - Difficult|
to locate source
2. Wouldn't my laser pointer do the same
No. In order to signal at a distance with a laser pointer,
you would have to accurately hit your target in the eye in order for
them to see you. Our products draw a line which fans out the further it
goes. At 16 miles, you have a 6,000 ft. long fan of light with which to
hit your target.
3. Are they safe to look at?
lasers are classified by the The United States Food and Drug
Administration as a Class IIIA(Class IIIR) Laser Product. Just like any
other light, however, it isn't advisable to point it directly in the eye
at short range for an extended period of time.
4. Won't they stun the pilot/captain whose attention I'm
trying to get?
the fan of light crosses your target's vision it will appear as a
brilliant flash in the distance and will in no way impair their night
5. When I shine my Rescue Laser in the distance, I can't see
Lasers are directional lights. Unless
the fan of light produced by our products crosses your line of vision or
you pass over a retoreflective material, you will not see the light when
aiming at a distance.
6. I'm holding my laser in the air and my friend can't see me. Why?
were to just hold the laser without aiming while slowly moving it back and forth you will probably not be visible to your target. Because lasers are directional lights, the fan of light must cross their line of vision. This is accomplished by first aiming at your target and then
moving the laser slowly back and forth. Every time the fan of light crosses their vision they will see a brilliant red flash.
7. Does it matter which way the laser line is pointed? If so how will I be able to tell.
Yes, it does matter. The
6000 ft. high fan of light produced at 16 miles gives to the greatest signaling area. The laser line should be pointed vertically at your target. In order to tell which way the line is directed, point the laser a few feet in front of you on the ground.
