Task: activateICLS Added with: 2.5.2
Hierarchy: Scripting Root > Tasks > Command > activateICLS
Tasking Type: Command
For: Ships
Available Under: All tasks types
Description: Activates an ICLS landing beacon for aircraft carriers.
Format: This task needs to be in the following format.
ActivateICLS= { 
  id = 'ActivateICLS', 
  params = {
    type = 131584,
    channel = number, 
    unitId = number, 
    name = string, 

Required parameters:

type: 131584 Evidently a fixed value

channel: Any number from 1 to 20

unitId: Any valid unitId corresponding to a ship. It is unclear if a system is required to exist on the object type for this task to work.

Optional Parameters:

name: Used to name the ICLS beacon, has no discernable use.

Examples: Sets the ICLS channel to 5 for unitId 2 within the group "CV59TF"
   local gp = Group.getByName("CV59TF"):getController()
   gp:setCommand({id = "ActivateICLS",
         ["params"] = 
              ["type"] = 131584,
              ["channel"] = 5,
              ["unitId"] = 2,
