ABEILLON, the European leader in flexible gooseneck solutions for the industry, has developed recognized expertise in the defense industry. ABEILLON operates in the audio and radio communication segments, but also in lighting. ABEILLON has developed a range of table-top map reading lamps used in surface ships, submarines, land and air response vehicles operating on military fields of operations.

To meet the requirements of environments that are the most sensitive to electromagnetic disturbances or to the safety of materials or people, ABEILLON is developing flexible solutions using polymer optical fibers to route light from a remote light source to reading lights.

The use of optical fiber eliminates any risk associated with the presence of flammable materials nearby, and it does not generate any electromagnetic disturbance. ABEILLON map lights using optical fiber meet these specific constraints, while maintaining the ease of use and the robustness of the flexible gooseneck.
