The U.S. Patent Office grants 29 patent claims across two patent filings
BrightEye Tactical Illumination System from Cyberlux
RESEARCH TRIANGLE, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has recently awarded patent protection for 29 claims contained within two of the Company’s patent filings that address the apparatus and methods for providing multi-mode solid-state lighting. These 29 claims provide the Company with patent protection that extends to its WatchDog and BrightEye family of tactical lighting products, as well as other future product releases.
“Cyberlux is a leader in innovation in the solid-state lighting field. The award of these 29 patent claims will not only provide patent protection for our important tactical lighting systems, but will also provide a development platform for future products,” said Mark Schmidt, president and chief operating officer for Cyberlux. “The Company’s ability to license, develop and patent innovative solid-state lighting technology is strategically important and supports our focus on near-term profitability and long-term growth.”
The claims awarded by the U.S. Patent Office address a broad array of solid-state lighting devices that are comprised of an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) with a corresponding control circuit that provides the system with power sensing, motion sensing and ambient light sensing for system control, along with a localized electrical energy source that powers the array of LEDs for illumination, along with a reflector positioned proximate to the array of LEDs for reflecting and optimizing the light output of the LEDs.
In addition, the awarded claims address the method of operating an LED light device that operates by sensing electrical power information, sensing mode of illumination information provided by a user via a user interface, sensing LED intensity information provided by the user via the user interface, directing an array of LEDs to operate in either a spot-light mode of illumination, a flood-light mode of illumination, or a combined mode of illumination based upon the sensed mode of illumination information, and displaying the information to the user via a user interface based upon the sensed battery electrical power information, the sensed mode of illumination information, and the sensed LED intensity information.
The 29 claims awarded under the two Cyberlux patent filings create an extensible intellectual property platform for current tactical lighting system production and future lighting system development.
