SIMI VALLEY, Ca. - Reset recently signed a strategic alliance agreement with Laser Devices, Inc. (LDI) for the Reset Rifle Integrated Power Rail (RIPR) program. LDI is the first industry leader to take advantage of RIPR's open architecture powered rail system. LDI, working closely with Reset, will initially provide bridge adaptors for coupling current "in service" devices, used by military and law enforcement personnel, to the RIPR rail. More importantly, LDI will immediately begin designing "purpose-built" lasers and tactical lights that are smaller, lighter and more ergonomic.

"Purpose-built" products will include laser and tactical-light products that take advantage of the DC power supplied by the RIPR powered rail. As with all LDI products, these devices will be manufactured in the USA, submersible to 20 meters and meet MIL-STD-810G.

LDI President Heinz Thummel said, "We are pleased to be on board early in the RIPR open architecture technology. The RIPR power interface system will provide innovative options for our current laser aiming devices and tactical lights. We are also excited about the future opportunities that RIPR technology provides for the development of new devices."

Galen Puccini, Chief Operating Officer for Reset states, "Laser Devices is one of the original companies to pioneer weapon mounted lights and lasers to military and law enforcement professionals. LDI is widely respected for its quality and strength of products. This partnership with LDI will certainly pave the way for other device manufacturers to adopt the RIPR powered rail for use with their products as well".

By eliminating the redundant battery compartments and batteries associated with each weapon mounted device, RIPR will directly provide power to these devices, thus reducing device sizes by up to 50%. By drawing on RIPR's increased battery output, currently deployed devices will run longer and devices with higher power demands will be more readily deployable.

The RIPR is the first powered rail adaptor for tactical weapon accessories. The RIPR centralized power pack replaces multiple battery types currently carried by soldiers and adapts to all M-1913 Picatinny and NATO STANAG rails. This universal standard greatly reduces weight on the soldier as well as the logistic and supply chain costs caused by multiple battery types. The central location of the power pack also improves weapon balance.

For over forty years, RESET has served the computer, telecommunications, and general electronics industries with cost effective solutions through the highest level quality parts support, and reverse logistics services. For more information on RESET and the Rifle Integrated Power Rail, please visit
