StreamLight has updated its Sidewinder light series with a highly-visible strobe that's designed for both water and ground operations.
The Sidewinder Rescue features an omni-directional defuser that makes the strobe visible from the side as well as the top. It has two strobe settings. It fires 50 beats per minute to meet the U.S. Army requirement for ground operations and 110 bmp to meet the Marine Corps requirement for water ops, Matt Baker, director of Streamlight's Military and Federal Sales, said Tuesday at Modern Day Marine 2014.
The Sidewinder Rescue is designed to replace military strobes such as the MS 2000, Baker said. Like other Sidewinder models, it features a 55-lumen light in white, blue and green. It retails for about $100 and will be available at a government rate of about $65.
