Oxley wins development contract from KAIThe UK-based Oxley Group (www.oxleygroup.com) has been selected by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to develop the full external lighting system on the new KF-X/IF-X fighter aircraft project for the development of a single- or twin-seat multi-role fighter for the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) and Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU).

As part of the development contract, Oxley will be supplying an external LED lighting system that includes landing light, taxi light, refuelling lights, formation lights, wing-tip lights and an ‘intelligent’ lighting controller.


The system, which will be designed specifically for the new jets, is fully integrated into the pilot’s multi-functional display.

Oxley technical director Darren Cavan said: “The comprehensive technical development process will cover design, prototyping, testing and manufacture.

“This will be completed by a dedicated Oxley project team of mechanical, optical, electronics and software engineers at the Priory Park site in Ulverston, Cumbria.”

Martin Blakstad, Oxley Group CEO, added: “The team has been working closely with counterparts at KAI and this has created a strong relationship between the two companies.”
