An Advanced Technology Leader
RSL Fiber Systems is a total lighting systems solutions provider, employing the latest technologies to develop the most advanced fiber optic-based solutions for the most demanding, complex commercial and military lighting challenges.
The company offers a proprietary fiber optic lighting system known as remote source lighting, or “RSL”. Remote source lighting involves generating light in one location and then transporting that light via fiber optic cable to a remote light fixture – 1,000 feet away or more. Benefits include safety, low downtime, ease of maintenance, protection from electric shock, utilization in hazardous environments, stealth and the ability to operate in harsh environments. RSL systems are also capable of quickly changing color and intensity to support specific applications.
The RSL system was developed through extensive internal investment and in collaboration with the Office of Naval Research, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, and other industry partners. It is state of the art and can transport light more than 19 times farther than competing systems. It has also passed rigorous qualification for military use. RSL is actively involved with solid state lighting projects; the company presented a new, innovative concept leveraging fiber optic technology for a renewable energy system at the Naval Energy Forum in October, 2009.
RSL is also actively engaged in developing next-generation lighting technologies utilizing LEDs, laser and more.
