The family of Hand-Held Signals includes parachuted and 5-element cluster signals. Both product types are used for battlefield illumination and signaling (distress, good to go, stop, etc.) among ground troop emplacements as well as to signal aircraft .Each signal consists of an illuminant assembly and a rocket propulsion assembly in a ten-inch aluminum tube. Following the simple launching procedure, the fin-stabilized rocket assembly propels to an altitude of approximately 750 feet, after which a charge ignites and expels the illuminants.
