Airmen Invent $10 Fix for F-35 Pilots’ Gear
We have locally designed, produced, and tested an interim mask light that is compatible with current F-35 flight equipment. It's an affordable (less than $10/unit) stop-gap measure until a long-term solution is found. Our current product is 3D printed on base using ESD safe material and an NVG compatible LED. The light is powered by a CR2032 battery. The ultimate goal is to produce a variable intensity mask light with a hands-free switch and a battery that's accessible in flight. (U.S. Air Force video)
