BrightEye Portable Illumination System from Cyberlux Corporation
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation, a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the Company has received and fulfilled a system order from The Boeing Company associated with the SBInet deployment. This purchase was made under the SBInet Basic Ordering Agreement that Cyberlux and Boeing entered into earlier this year.
"Cyberlux provides powerful tactical lighting systems designed to provide energy-efficient, highly portable covert and visible lighting solutions for securing hostile environments, including our borders," said Mark Schmidt, president of Cyberlux. "The system purchased by Boeing, an expanded capability of our military solution, has further implications for the replacement of the heavy generator-based lighting systems currently in use by the U.S. Armed Forces and most highway construction contractors," continued Schmidt.
In September, the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Battlelab (AMB) announced that testing of the Company's tactical lighting systems had been completed successfully. The AMB determined that the Cyberlux lighting system is 97% smaller in footprint, weighs 94% less than current diesel-powered incandescent lighting systems and saves an estimated 63% in daily operating costs. In addition, the AMB concluded that the lighting system provides versatile and economical tactical lighting capability as required by expeditionary forces across all U.S. armed services.
Recently the Company reported that the Fiscal Year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations legislation contains $8 million to equip the United States Air Force with the Company's Portable Illumination Systems.
Cyberlux Corporation holds General Services Administration (GSA) contract GS-07F-9409S under the Federal Supply Schedule 56 for Specialty Lighting products.
