RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation, (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the Company has successfully completed the field testing of the new BrightEye high-performance solid-state LED lighting system conducted by the United States Air Force Air Mobility Battlelab at Fort Huachuca, AZ. The new BrightEye VaC Portable Illumination System is the latest product developed by Cyberlux to fulfill the recent USAF contract for portable, battery-powered visible and covert lighting systems.
As part of the new product introduction process, the USAF Air Mobility Battlelab conducts rigorous field testing of new products in environments that simulate actual usage. The BrightEye lighting system was tested in both visible and covert lighting modes that demonstrated an advanced security lighting capability for force protection or first responders; operated as an equipment maintenance illumination system; and performed as a ground operations lighting source for a C-130 aircraft. All testing scenarios exceeded Air Mobility Battlelab requirements, including operating surface illumination, system battery-power runtime, deployment set-up times and system weight.
Importantly, the illumination capacity of the BrightEye was measured during the field test by the research unit of the USAF. The Air Force Research Laboratory determined that two BrightEye systems working in tandem will provide an equivalent level of operational lighting as the currently specified FL-1D floodlights that are used across all Armed Services.
“Cyberlux is a leader in advanced solid-state lighting system development as demonstrated by the BrightEye System’s performance during the recent field testing,” said Mark Schmidt, president and chief operating officer for Cyberlux. “Exceeding all the Air Mobility Battlelab requirements is a significant achievement for the Company’s innovative lighting technology. Now that the light-weight, portable battery-powered BrightEye solid-state lighting system is capable of replacing existing floodlights on appropriate Armed Services missions, we have a tremendous market for these Cyberlux products.”
The BrightEye VaC Portable Illumination System is designed as a portable visible and infrared night-vision compatible illumination system for first responders, force protection, aircraft maintenance, expeditionary airbase protection, general mission lighting and other portable, high-intensity lighting applications. Contained in an easily deployed wheeled carrying case and using advanced optics, battery power and advanced solid-state lighting technology, the BrightEye system is capable of eliminating the space-consuming bulk, noise and energy consumption issues associated with the current generator-powered incandescent lighting systems. Moreover, the BrightEye provides both standard white lighting and covert night-vision compatible lighting which is not available in the traditional FL-1D floodlight.
