RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation, (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the company has entered into a product development, business development and product sales relationship with Sacred Power Corporation, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions.

Sacred Power Corporation specializes in solar power solutions and provides innovative renewable energy technologies to the Department of Defense (DOD) and Federal government marketplace. Sacred Power, a Native American owned and operated 8(a) certified company, has significant government and military experience in the design and delivery of telecommunication, power generation and electrification projects.

Under the terms of the agreement between the two companies, Sacred Power and Cyberlux will work as prime contractor/subcontractor teaming partners on solid-state lighting and solar power renewable energy opportunities. In addition, the companies will support cross-product and cross-channel sales initiatives where Cyberlux will utilize the solar power capability of Sacred Power to offer a range of renewable power options for its Cyberlux Portable Illumination System products, and Sacred Power will leverage the Cyberlux solid-state lighting capability, including the Cyberlux Portable Illumination System products, in its renewable energy projects. This combination of capabilities will immediately enhance the presence of both companies in the Energy, Security and Power Surety market segments.

As a first project, the two companies have been awarded a purchase order contract from Sandia National Laboratories on behalf of the DOD to provide portable, solar powered visible and covert LED security lighting systems for testing, evaluation and future deployment across the DOD agencies. For this project, Sacred Power will provide the solar power solution and system integration capability, and Cyberlux will provide the visible and covert LED security lighting solution.

"The Sacred Power team looks forward to working with Cyberlux to bring LED lighting that includes our renewable power solutions to the significant DOD, federal government and commercial markets," said Co- owner, Odes Armijo-Caster of Sacred Power. "Sacred Power is experienced in the development of renewable power solutions and in the execution of strategic projects, both large and small. We have a unique understanding of these markets and we are ready to support and drive lighting and power solution opportunities with Cyberlux," adds David Melton, Sacred Power's President and CEO.

"Cyberlux Corporation is excited to partner with Sacred Power to extend our product capability and business development reach. While our existing Portable Illumination Systems continue to drive growth with record year-over-year sales, by incorporating Sacred Power's renewable power expertise and our superior lighting technologies into sustainable product solutions, we anticipate substantial opportunities within the Energy, Security and Power Surety market segments in 2009 and beyond," said Mark Schmidt, president and chief executive officer of Cyberlux. "We look forward to bringing our tactical lighting systems capability, and the core patented technology embedded in our products, to the numerous Sacred Power customer and channel opportunities as well."

The Cyberlux Portable Illumination Systems are designed as visible and night-vision compatible illumination systems for mission-critical tactical lighting that requires rapidly deployable, high-intensity lighting capability. Using advanced optics, advanced solidstate lighting technology, and light-weight advanced battery power, all contained in easily transportable wheeled cases, these Cyberlux tactical lighting systems provide broad area visible white lighting and night-vision compatible IR lighting capable of operating all night on an advanced battery power system, capabilities not available in traditional lighting systems.

Recently, the U.S. Patent Office awarded patent protection for 50 claims contained within the Company's Portable Light Device patents, which will provide Cyberlux with thorough patent protection for its tactical lighting products and any future products developed on this patent foundation.
