Portuguese term or phrase: Escolas de Fogo
Forte de Copacabana

Suas atividades, voltadas para a procura de novas técnicas e para o aprimoramento da instrução militar viabilizaram a execução das primeiras ESCOLAS DE FOGO, que foram realizadas a partir de 1935, além de ser o pioneiro, no Brasil, em EXERCÍCIOS NOTURNOS DE LEVANTAMENTO DE ROTA COM APOIO DE HOLOFOTES, em 1937.

1.
Escolas de Fogo, in English?

2.
Nighttime manoeuvres in what? (DE LEVANTAMENTO DE ROTA) with the back-up of searchlights? ( COM APOIO DE HOLOFOTES)

These are military terms and I need the functional equivalents, not literal translations.
