Abstract
A test program is described to determine the performance effectiveness of the controller and power supply components of a prototype Helicopter Emergency Egress Lighting System (HEELS) system under realistic impact conditions. Two test packages were subjected to simulated impacts representing five different crash pulses. The power supplies withstood all the impacts, but the inertia switches failed once at the lowest impact condition, indicating a possible quality control problem, and a need to verify that the minimum expected impact would suffice to activate the system reliably.
