WatchDog Portable Covert Illumination System
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL) announced that the Company has completed development of the next generation of its WatchDog Portable Covert Illumination System for the United States Air Force and shipped the next order to the Air Mobility Battlelab.
The Air Mobility Battlelab explores high-payoff concepts, technologies, and tactics to advance the distinctive capabilities of Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support. The next generation WatchDog advanced solid-state LED security lighting system was developed by Cyberlux in conjunction with the Air Mobility Battlelab for the United States Air Force. Upon completion of the new system capabilities, the WatchDog system was shipped to Fort Dix Air Force Base for use within the USAF Air Mobility Command.
The second generation WatchDog system provides security lighting for an exterior boundary of 600 x 600 feet with either visible light or covert infrared light that is compatible with night-vision goggles (NVGs), more than double the first generation system. It was designed to protect military assets on the ground, such as an airplane, by creating a "lightless" zone around the asset while illuminating the surrounding protection boundary. In covert illumination mode, the system increases the visibility of NVGs by almost 6- fold.
The additional order for the second generation WatchDog system, which costs $15,112 on the GSA contract, was placed by the Air Mobility Battlelab for field deployment within various USAF Commands.
As part of the procurement process, the USAF Air Mobility Battlelab conducted a Best Value Determination / Sole Source study that evaluated the WatchDog system against any other available General Services Administration (GSA) contract-approved product and confirmed that the WatchDog system is one- of-a-kind in its capabilities and the only product that meets or exceeds the Battlelab's portable covert illumination system requirements.
"Cyberlux is a leader in solid-state lighting innovation and the next generation WatchDog solid-state lighting system more than doubles the performance of the first generation system, further exceeding the Air Mobility Battlelab requirements," said Mark Schmidt, president and chief operating officer for Cyberlux. "The development and shipment of the second generation WatchDog system for the USAF is a meaningful milestone for the Company's military business unit."
Cyberlux was one of 26 competing companies to submit proposals to develop a lightweight, portable lighting system for both visible lighting and infrared lighting compatible with night vision goggles. Cyberlux was selected during the USAF competitive review process to develop the Portable Covert Illumination System, which weighs less than 50 pounds, including batteries. The system can easily be carried to remote locations and deployed quickly, and with highly efficient LED technology, the system can provide lighting for several days with a single battery charge.
