Welcome to Cyalume Technologies Europe

We are the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) subsidiary of Cyalume, the world manufacturer and leader of chemiluminescent products, generally known as lightsticks. Cyalume also offers retroreflective and photoluminescent products, chemiluminescent ammunition payloads and systems for marking out mine-cleared routes.

The Cyalume Technologies SAS headquarters is located at Aix-en-Provence in France where it produces the military version of the 15 cm lightstick (ChemLight) and the safety version (SnapLight). This proximity means that the company is able to supply the military and safety markets of the entire EMEA zone reactively with lightsticks for their military, domestic security, industrial and commercial safety and personal application requirements.

Lightsticks for the Armed Forces and for safety lighting on various markets

Developed hand-in-hand with the US Armed Forces, Cyalume products are traditionally intended for NATO forces. Cyalume is the sole manufacturer accredited by NATO for the supply of lightsticks.

This is why Cyalume invests so much in research and development. The company supplies ground-breaking and environmentally friendly tactical lighting products to its military customers. The company also proposes advanced technology lighting to security/safety professionals in many areas, and to the public at large, for their personal uses.
