Colored Smoke


Armed Forces, Special Forces, Law Enforcement Agencies and Rescue Teams have used various kinds of pyrotechnic smoke for decades for signaling purposes. Some of the applications of colored smoke are to locate troops for rescue forces, define wind direction and speed for helicopter landings, marking positions and boundaries or transmitting coded messages.

The APT product range of smoke applications includes different colors, various burning times and volumes and selectable ignition systems to meet the requirements for different operational situations.
