LED lighting design and manufacture
With four decades’ experience in LED design and manufacture, Oxley is a specialist in the development of new technology for vehicle and shelter applications. Oxley is a world leader in night vision lighting; the team pioneered the development of infra-red driving lights for military vehicle covert operations on NVGs and led the way with interior LED lighting solutions.
Oxley specialises in the production of LED indicators and interconnect products. The production of EMI filters is a long established area of the business and Oxley has extensive facilities dedicated to the design, prototype and production of discretes, ceramic planar arrays multi-way products for the removal of unwanted electro-magnetic interference from equipment.
Oxley has developed a wide range of LED lighting for vehicle and shelter applications to replace incandescent and fluorescent lighting in both retrofit and new build projects. The solutions are designed to be robust, rugged and designed with the military user in mind; the lights incorporate EMC compatibility and offer high sealing and high MTBF.
Universal products include combi lights, mini floodlights, and gooseneck lights.
Incorporating three lights in one unit, combi lights have main, blackout and emergency modes. Available in both AC and DC modes, they can be installed in any land platform with customised variations to suit specific requirements.
Mini LED floodlights
These small, compact LED lights are perfect for illuminating any area in military platforms where space and height is restricted. Available in NVG compatible and normal visible mode, they are perfect for vehicle installations.
Gooseneck LED lights
The gooseneck light incorporates state-of-the-art LED technology to provide a robust task light designed to meet the toughest military standards. High vibration and shock proof, the gooseneck comes with a secondary colour option, a straight or angled head and NVIS compatibility if required.
Vehicle lighting products
Oxley produces a comprehensive range of internal and external lighting for military vehicles in normal visible, NVG compatible, NVG Friendly and covert technology, with experience spread across night vision compatible upgrades to the provision of interior cabin lighting. Simple to install and with MTBF in excess of 50,000 hours, Oxley LEDs increase capability, enable safer operations and deliver significant through-life cost and energy savings compared with traditional vehicle light fittings.

- Tents and shelters
- Military field hospitals
- Tactical communications centres
- Ground stations
- Command posts
- UAV control stations
- Field storage containers
EFL lights for tents and shelters
The EFL series offers a highly reliable area lighting solution suitable for tents and shelters. Available in a range of sizes and AC and DC options, the lights have a low profile design providing increased work space with a rugged, solid state that ensures transportation and deployment without fear of failure. The lights are efficiently designed, requiring fewer units to light up a space and with a high MTBF they are a reliable ‘fit and forget’ option.
Data capture solutions
Oxley e-tag is a field-proven automatic identification technology (AIT) for equipment asset management applications. Assets fitted with an e-tag device deliver off-line critical asset information regardless of access to online information systems or geographic location.
Oxley e-tags are miniature, rugged contact memory devices containing 64KB of EEPROM non-volatile memory. Housed in small metal cans, the e-tag’s memory can be manually read-from or written-to simply by holding a handheld probe to the unit. Both the e-tag and probe are passive devices requiring no battery or internal power source.
- Unique serial numbers for auto ID
- On-chip password protection
- Memory write protection
- Error detection algorithms to minimise data corruption
e-tag devices can be mechanically or adhesively secured to assets and have passed stringent environmental qualification tests.
