Cyberlux Corporation, a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM), has placed its first order for two BrightEye Tactical Lighting Systems. Secured through one of the Company’s contractual sales arms, this purchase order will supply SOCOM with BrightEye units for field testing and evaluation by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C.
The United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) was activated in April 1987 to provide command, control and training for all special operations forces (SOF) in the United States. SOCOM headquarters is at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. Its component commands include the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C.; the Air Force Special Operations Command, Hurlburt Field, Fla; the Naval Special Warfare Command, Coronado, Calif.; and the Joint Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C. The John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, the U.S. Air Force Special Operations School and the Naval Special Warfare Center are also assigned to the command.
“We are pleased to see SOCOM become a client of Cyberlux and we are proud to add such an elite group of soldiers to our roster of BrightEye users,” said Mark Schmidt, president and chief executive officer of Cyberlux Corporation. “From a revenue perspective, the size and scope of the Special Ops Command adds a large opportunity to our existing backlog and future pipeline, and we feel strongly that we will continue to see purchase activity across the SOCOM divisions of the military. Our company’s mission is to provide best-of-breed tactical illumination systems to the brave men and women of our military and we take this very seriously, knowing that our products are used and relied on during the critical missions that keep our country safe and secure,” added Schmidt. The Cyberlux Tactical Illumination Systems are designed as highly portable, visible and night-vision compatible illumination systems for mission-critical tactical lighting where rapid deployment and high-intensity lighting capability are required. Using advanced optics, advanced solid-state lighting technology, and light-weight advanced battery power, all contained in easily transportable wheeled cases, the Cyberlux Tactical Lighting Systems provide broad area visible white lighting and night-vision compatible IR lighting capable of operating all night, performance capabilities not available in traditional lighting systems.
