A floodlight, or flood light, was a broad-beamed, high intensity artificial light used for illumination during low-light conditions. They could be part of the external lighting system on a starship, or even be placed on droids. The Millennium Falcon was equipped with floodlights, as was Ulban Arms' S-EP1 security droid.
A floodlight was much more powerful than a glowrod and could be used to brightly illuminate an area. Floodlights were used at Imperial Garrisons to search out intruders or escapees. One notable garrison that used such equipment was the Vryssa Garrison on Vryssa.
