In September, the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Battlelab (AMB) announced the successful completion of their BrightEye Portable Illumination System evaluation period (http://www.amc.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123069485 ). The AMB utilized Air Mobility Command expeditionary subject-matter experts to evaluate the BrightEye System's capabilities and determined that the BrightEye System is 97% smaller in footprint, weighs 94% less than their current diesel- powered incandescent lighting systems and saves an estimated 63% in daily operating costs. In addition, the AMB concluded that the BrightEye System provides versatile and economical tactical lighting capability as required by expeditionary forces across all U.S. armed services.
"The action by President Bush and the Congress to approve the equipping of the USAF with Cyberlux Portable Illumination Systems demonstrates the bi- partisan commitment to provide our Armed Services with the most advanced equipment and technology. With the successful evaluation of the BrightEye tactical lighting solutions by the USAF, this budget will accelerate the deployment of our BrightEye technology in support of the Air Force's most important missions," said Mark Schmidt , president and chief operating officer for Cyberlux. "In addition, we anticipate the National Guard will continue to deploy the BrightEye systems as well during 2008."
The BrightEye Portable Illumination System is designed as a portable visible and night-vision compatible illumination system for general mission tactical lighting, force protection, maintenance lighting, expeditionary base protection, disaster first responders, and other rapidly deployable high- intensity lighting applications. Using advanced optics, advanced solid-state lighting technology, and light-weight battery power, all contained in an easily transportable wheeled case, the BrightEye system is capable of eliminating the space-consuming bulk, noise and energy consumption of the current generator-powered incandescent lighting systems. Unique to the marketplace, the BrightEye provides both visible white lighting and night- vision compatible covert lighting, capability not available in traditional lighting systems.
The BrightEye Systems are available through the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule 56 for Specialty Lighting products under Cyberlux GSA Contract GS-07F-9409S.
