The Phoenix Encodable Infrared Beacon emits an IR signal that is visible at long range through a night vision device. These are made by government contractors like Cejay Engineering or Night Vision Devices, the manufacturer may vary. This highly portable signaling unit flashes a programmable signal when the battery is attached. The unit is programmed with any metallic object such as a coin. It is easy to operate under water or in a clothing pocket (like all IR signal units, the transmission can be seen through clothing).
These great little devices are perfect for your outdoors survival kit. If you do any sort of nature-related activity, there is no excuse to not have some sort of active IR signaling unit on your person in case things go bad and you need rescue. The Phoenix attaches directly to the top of a standard off-the-shelf 9V battery. The Phoenix also makes a perfect signaling device for tactical operations. The Phoenix series of IR beacons has been in use by US and Allied Military units for years. It has proven to be a very effective tool in Escape & Evasion kits.
