Cyberlux Awarded Air Force Contract to Adapt Lighting Systems
Cyberlux Corp., a provider of LED lighting solutions based in Research Triangle Park, NC, has been selected to adapt two commercial-off-the-shelf lighting systems into a new high-performance solid-state LED lighting system for the US Air Force Air Mobility Battlelab (AMB). Cyberlux will adapt the WatchDog Portable Covert Illumination System and the BrightEye Portable Visible Illumination System to assist with USAF Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support. The AMB previously selected Cyberlux to adapt its commercially available portable lighting system to meet its requirements and deliver the WatchDog system as the perimeter covert lighting solution to protect landed aircraft and personnel. The new system is designed as a portable visible and infrared illumination system for force protection, aircraft maintenance, expeditionary airbase force protection, general mission lighting and other high-intensity lighting applications. Using advanced battery power and contained in a wheeled carrying case, the objective of the new system is to replace the space-consuming bulk, noise and energy consumption problems of the current generator-powered incandescent lighting systems.
