Paper Abstract

A novel design utilizing two Xenon flashlamps and two luminaires each of which collects from two sides of the lamps is described. The combination gives uniform 360 degree(s) coverage in azimuth and a very narrow elevation pattern. Good glare control is also maintained in the elevation plane. Theoretical considerations are briefly presented. Ray traces are also presented to show the uniformity of illumination and glare control as a function of luminaire depth.
