National Guard purchases 17 BrightEye high-performance tactical lighting systems for the Bureau’s CERFP teams
BrightEye Visible and Covert Portable Illumination Systems
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation, (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the Company has received a commitment for 17 BrightEye Visible and Covert Portable Illumination Systems from the National Guard Bureau. This most recent National Guard order for 17 Systems equates to $313,004 in revenue, which follows the initial order in April for $37,072.
The National Guard Bureau will deploy the next 17 BrightEye systems as a tactical lighting solution for their 17 CERFP – ‘Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High-yield Explosive (CBRNE) Enhanced Response Force Package’. The CERFP team is composed of four mission elements - search and extraction, decontamination, medical, and command and control –and staffed by personnel from already established National Guard units. The 17 CERFP teams are aligned with the 10 FEMA regions, and when an incident occurs within a team's response area, they are alerted through their State Headquarters and mobilized.
"This next National Guard Bureau order signifies the level of capability and field performance our BrightEye System delivers in support of the National Guard’s most important disaster response missions,” said Mark Schmidt, president and chief operating officer for Cyberlux. “With CERPF teams supporting all the FEMA regions within U. S., we anticipate ongoing BrightEye needs within the National Guard. We are making important progress with our Military and Homeland Security customers including the recent successful U. S. Air Force BrightEye evaluation and this National Guard CERFP deployment, the first step in deploying our BrightEye tactical lighting solution within the broader scope of operations by the National Guard."
Beyond the CERFP deployment, the National Guard requires rapidly deployable portable covert and visible lighting systems for border patrol support, homeland defense operations, disaster response preparedness, and global military deployments. The National Guard provides each State with units trained and equipped to protect life and property, and provides the Nation with units trained, equipped and ready to defend the United States and its interests around the world.
The BrightEye Portable Illumination System is designed as a portable visible and night-vision compatible illumination system for general mission tactical lighting, force protection, maintenance lighting, expeditionary base protection, disaster first responders, and other rapidly deployable high-intensity lighting applications. Using advanced optics, advanced solid-state lighting technology, and light-weight battery power, all contained in an easily transportable wheeled case, the BrightEye system is capable of eliminating the space-consuming bulk, noise and energy consumption of the current generator-powered incandescent lighting systems. Unique to the marketplace, the BrightEye provides both visible white lighting and night-vision compatible covert lighting, capability not available in traditional lighting systems.
The BrightEye System is available through the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule 56 for Specialty Lighting products under Cyberlux GSA Contract GS-07F-9409S and orderable part number 2CP0170.
