Phoenix Junior™ (Firefly™) IR-14 Infrared Marker Beacon
Phoenix Jr.™ Infrared Beacon IR-14 (NSN: 5855-01-438-4588) is an extremely rugged and low cost Infrared marker beacon. The Phoenix Jr. (Firefly) beacon was principally designed as an individual Combat Identification marker employed to minimise fratricide (the inadvertent destruction of battle field assets by friendly forces.) It has also been used as a vehicle ID marker, drop zone indicator and perimeter marker. Since its introduction in 1984, the Phoenix Jr. is the most widely used electronic Combat ID system in the world.
