PHOENIX JUNIOR is an extremely rugged and low-cost marker beacon. It is used in conjunction with Night Vision goggles (NVG) and other Night Vision
devices (NVD), at night, as a covert position marker. Phoenix Jr. was originally designed as a combat identification marker to minimize fratricide
(the inadvertent killing of friendly forces, by friendly forces).
The Phoenix Jr. has been widely fielded by American and coalition forces for combat identification. The beacon has many uses in combat and other
covert operations for marking personnel, vehicles, safe pathways, or locations. It incorporates a flash rate that was specified to prevent confusion
with small arms-fire. Use the Phoenix Jr. to identify friendly force positions, demarcation lines or perimeters.

Size: 1.5" x .625" H
Battery: Common 9 volt
Configuration: 3 Light Emitting Diodes (LED)

Switching: Attach or remove battery
Operating depth: the battery contact is exposed however if immersed the unit will continue to operate until the battery contacts fail due to water and
electrolytic corrosion. Given these conditions the depth limitation is solely determined by the battery’s ability to withstand depth.
It looks harmless to me, could come in handy if you are lost at sea
