Oxley is currently supplying LED internal crew compartment lighting for the General Dynamics Force Protection Foxhound light protected patrol vehicle.



Foxhound (above) is equipped with intelligent internal lights – intelligent by design and intelligent in application. In physical terms the LED technology means they are very low profile – giving more headroom for the soldiers travelling in the vehicle. As back door opens the light goes from white down to red – NVIS friendly capability in a single compact unit.

The DC Combi light has a rugged design which provides excellent resistance to shock and vibration and provides high reliability in the field. The light is a ‘fit and forget solution’ as there is no requirement to replace bulbs or tubes and it has a MTBF of over 50,000 hours.

Oxley is also developing prototype lighting solutions for the General Dynamics Scout SV. This includes interior DC Combi dual mode crew lighting and the Gooseneck LED task light designed and manufactured to meet LED Defence Standard 59-411, and Land Class A and B EMC benchmark for UK military equipment.
