  Title Illuminating Military Installations Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Society of American Military Engineers Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 112 Issue 726 Pages 66-68  
  Keywords Lighting; Planning  
  Abstract Military bases must implement high security measures to ensure the safety of personnel and visitors. Lighting is a critical aspect of a base-wide security plan. Installations require high-quality, reliable lighting and real-time reporting and diagnostics so energy and security personnel know when and where luminaires are down and why, allowing them to re-establish the security perimeter more quickly. Modern installations are also concerned with conserving energy and reducing maintenance in order to decrease overall operating costs. An energy-efficient lighting system helps minimize the military’s energy footprint and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. There are, however, challenges associated with these efforts. Most bases sprawl across thousands of acres and include a range of applications that require a broad portfolio of luminaires—from roadways and intersections to security checkpoints, substations, motor pools, and office, housing, and medical buildings. They also include a mix of personnel who reside and work on base. Some military personnel and civilians arrive in the morning and leave at night. Others, including soldiers manning security checkpoints, require illumination for tasks performed after dark. In addition, many installations are located near residential areas or wildlife refuges where sky glow and light pollution must be avoided.
