RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., 28 September 2006. Cyberlux Corporation, a provider of LED lighting solutions, has been selected to provide a new high-performance solid-state LED lighting system for the United States Air Force Air Mobility Battlelab.

The Cyberlux LED lighting system results from the adaptation of two existing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems, the WatchDog Portable Covert Illumination System and the BrightEye Portable Visible Illumination System. Both COTS systems are currently available through GSA Schedule 56 and GSA Advantage.

The Air Mobility Battlelab (AMB) explores concepts, technologies, and tactics to advance the USAF capabilities of Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support.

The AMB previously selected Cyberlux Corporation to adapt its commercially available portable lighting system to meet AMB requirements and deliver the WatchDog Portable Covert Illumination System as the perimeter covert lighting solution for the protection of landed aircraft assets and attendant 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, for appropriate missions, with an easily deployed wheeled case advanced solid-state lighting system.
