13 Feb Cyalume wins the NATO contract again in December 2018 to supply lightsticks
Cyalume Technologies is the world leader of chemiluminescent products, a technolgy invented by the company more than 45 years ago to answer to a need for Defence. The Cyalume group is continuing its efforts to continuously improve its performances, technology’s quality and safety and to develop new products based on chemical light for both Military and Safety markets, including the medical market.
In December 2018, Cyalume again won the NATO contract through the tender submitted through NSPA (NATO Support and Procurement Agency). Cyalume is today the only manufacturer that offers a range of chemiluminescent products (lightsticks, lighting markers…) :
- whose technical specifications answer (and even exceed) the specifications required by NATO,
- whose products have been tested by NATO and have passed the subsequent testing so approved by NATO services.
As such, Cyalume is the sole supplier to NATO, UN and US Department of Defence (US DoD), plus many other MOD’s, DoDs and Law Enforcement Agencies around the world for chemiluminescent products.
Warning, other manufacturers may claim they are compliant with specifications of an existing NSN (Nato Stock Number) or may answer to NATO specifications with their own NSN purchased from some European National Codification Bureaux. But in reality, their products have never been tested for their specifications compared to those published by NATO! More information on NSN can be found here on our website.
