The Core Survival HEL-STAR 5 EXO® has significantly improved visibility, durability, water resistance, and weight over its predecessor. Other improvements include easy battery replacement and a smaller footprint. The HEL-STAR 5 EXO® is a versatile personnel marker light developed for multiple military and tactical operations, retaining the original low-profile design required by users.

For additional peace of mind, users have both a positive visual and tactile confirmation when moving between the ON/OFF and function modes.

The White and Green functions both meet FAA 3-statute mile requirements and the new LED element gives users significantly improved lateral visibility and overall brightness, increasing situational awareness and safety.

The field-replaceable lithium 123 battery (no tools needed) provides longevity in extreme temperature conditions. The HEL-STAR 5 EXO® has been waterproof tested to 66 feet for underwater operations.
