The Star Flash Signal Mirror is the most valuable daytime means of visual signaling. Even on overcast days, this signal mirror can be used effectively to obtain rescue. You can't be rescued if you can't be found. Ultimate Survival's Star Flash signal mirror can help you be found, and can save your life. Every military survival kit is required to include a signal mirror and all personnel are trained to use one. Unfortunately, the majority of the general public possesses only limited understanding of the value of a signal mirror and its ability to save their life.
The Star Flash Signal Mirror is one of the most versatile pieces of outdoor equipment you can add to your personal gear. Whether attracting the attention of another hunter several ridge lines away or applying makeup, this mirror offers superior performance.
Survival experts worldwide agree that no person should ever venture into the woods, travel off-road, get on board their boat or plane, or engage in any other outdoor activity without a signal mirror and a whistle.
Why choose the Star Flash targetable signal mirror, when other, less expensive mirrors are available? The U.S. Air Force asked that very question before deciding to include Star Flash in all of their kits. Our mirror is far lighter than glass and is virtually indestructible. Perhaps most important, however, is the trademarked Star Flash technology that enables you to aim the flash as far as the eye can see with pinpoint accuracy.
Best results with the Star Flash signal mirror are achieved when the air is clear and the sun is well above the horizon. However, visible signal flashes can be created even on hazy or overcast days. Signal flashes can and may be seen even when you cannot see the aircraft, boat, or other means of rescue. So when signaling and no specific targets are in sight, be sure to continually sweep the horizon to maximize your chances of being seen. At night, flashlights, headlights, and moonlight can produce effective signals with your Star Flash.
While Star Flash is a state-of-the-art mirror, it also is a practical, multipurpose outdoor tool. Use it around camp for shaving, to apply makeup or camouflage, or for inserting contact lenses. Use it as a silent communications tool to signal an outdoor companion, or for looking around corners or into tight spaces. Use it for emergency signaling to send a pinpoint flash to a rescue plane, helicopter, vehicle, or distant search party.
Compact survival mirror reflects sunlight for signaling airplanes or boats. So highly reflective it can be seen for 10 miles, yet so small it measures only 2" x 3". This mirror is standard survival gear for pilots and other military people. Center star allows you to accurately aim the signal out to extended distances.
The signal mirror has repeatedly been rated as the most effective daylight-signaling device available and has been seen from up to 100 miles away. Because of this, the Star Flash Signal Mirror has been an included item in Air Force Survival Kits.
The Star Flash Signal Mirror is made of Lexan, floats and is virtually indestructible. Aiming of the Star Flash is accomplished by use of its trademarked center star. Instructions for use are written right on the mirror. However, we highly recommend that you practice with the Star Flash Signal Mirror prior to actually needing it.
This signal mirror is perfect for anyone who may need assistance in sparsely populated areas. This includes snow skiers, backpackers, boaters, hunters, rescue personnel and of course, aviators. This is a must have item for any survival kit and has saved countless lives over the years.
