I am super excited to unveil a groundbreaking chapter in IR.Tools’ journey as we proudly announce our strategic alliance with Thermal Beacon’s Secure Optical Signaling.

This exciting partnership marks a significant expansion of our capabilities as we integrate active IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) protection into our extensive lineup of passive friend or foe solutions.

Since our inception in 2006, IR.Tools has been a trusted provider of top-notch passive IR patches and markers to military and law enforcement agencies worldwide.

Now, as the exclusive distributor in the U.S. for active beacons from Thermal Beacons Ltd., we stand ready to meet the evolving needs of your operations that demand active technology.

Unlock the Advantages: 3 Key Benefits for Flashing Active IFF

1. Real-Time Identification

A flashing active beacon plays a critical role in providing real-time and immediate friend or foe identification.  In a high-pressure, swiftly changing battle or environment, securely identifying friendly forces reduces the risks of friendly fire. Overall, situational awareness is enhanced and minimizes injury or death. Identification distance ranges up to 2km for LWIR.

2. Enhanced Safety

Active beacons contribute to an extra layer of security.  The flashing active signals communicate only with compatible systems and reduce any chance of enemy infiltration. The addition of active combat ID to established passive ID enhances the success of the operations.

3. Unlimited Environments

Unlike a passive marker, an active beacon is not limited by its environment. Dense foliage and weather conditions will not diminish the power of the active signal. The adaptability of the beacon across many challenging situations ensures a safe, reliable performance.
