  • This paper dealt with the LED optical illumination system design for the Masthead navigation light to replace halogen lamps. We made Fresnel lens satisfy luminous intensity distribution of "Convention on the International Regulation for Preventing Collisions at Sea(COLREG)". The optical system is designed by classifying three parts: light source, lens, and cut off plate. The source of light has been made to have the uniform horizontal and vertical light distribution by placing 6 LEDs at intervals of $54^{\circ}$, and as the cylindrical Fresnel lens, the lens has been designed to achieve the uniform horizontal and vertical light distribution in the range of plain light. Finally, the cover has been designed to block the light from the outside of plain light and ultimately met the standards for light distribution of navigation lights. In addition, the validity of design has been verified with manufacturing a trial product.

  • In this paper, we designed and fabricated LED navigation lights which can replace the existing ones immediately and overcome disadvantages due to use of conventional lamps. To decide the best arrangement and position of a LED module, optical systems of existing navigation lights were analyzed and refracted routes of rays were simulated. The electrical and optical characteristics of the fabricated LED navigation lights were measured and analyzed with a goniophotometer. To calculate ranges of visibility, the vertical and horizontal luminous intensity distributions were evaluated in accordance with the COLREGs (convention on the international regulation for preventing collisions at Sea). From the results, the proposed LED navigation lights showed suitable characteristics for marine environment with the power consumption reduced by 90% and the maximum luminous intensity increased by 20% compared to the existing navigation lights.

  • LED navigation light installed on the ship performs a important role to ensure safety and prevent collisions with other ships. LED navigation light is mainly used in the night and within the limited visibility by smoke, rainfall. In particular, LED navigation light installed with a clear understanding. LED navigation light is consist of LED module, a control board, a converter, a Fresnel lens, such as enclosure. Russian Society of LED navigation light (RMRS) of the ship to be delivered by drying at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering requires guaranteed reliable products at below $-52^{\circ}C$. conventional LED navigation light has to ensure quality at $-25{\sim}40^{\circ}C$. So, LED navigation light should ensure a problems of random failure or long time operation. In this paper, we present the current status and future plans of reliability so far.
