California-based New Bedford Panoramex (NBP) has contracted with the FAA to replace the aging incandescent bulb-powered precision approach path indicator (PAPI) systems at 100 airports around the country, according to the initial contract.

In addition to providing greater reliability and durability, once implemented, the LED systems, will cut energy costs by 75 percent when compared with the incandescent versions.
