One of AMS’s core capabilities is in the area of visual signalling. Lighted aids to navigation are used for key navigational points. Beacons and Lights range from long range systems for the purpose of marking landfalls or coastal passages and channels. Shorter range lights are found for example on harbour and river entrances.
AMS staff have been involved for many years in the design of visual signals that accord with IALA recommendations. Experience with long range visual signals and short range signals means that we can optimise visual signal designs to provide the most economic, energy efficient and effective solution for any visual signalling challenge.
When designing long or short range signals a number of factors need to be considered including meteorological range, geographical range and nominal range. AMS expertise comes from experience in the design and installation of signalling systems capable of producing effective ranges in excess of 20 nautical miles that have been installed in remote locations as well as adjacent to urban concentrations both in Australia and overseas.
