Identification is a priority for those working in night security

Cyalume can be used for IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) and for the identification of soldiers.

Combined with the use of night vision devices, Cyalume infrared sticks and Cyalume infrared strips and patches can help locate and identify soldiers who are in enemy territory.
Because sticks or even IR patches are better at identifying units, the risk of a “friendly fire” is considerably reduced. In situations where there is limited visibility, Cyalume sticks can be used to mark staff during attacks in order to prevent a “friendly fire”.

Other products from the CyFlect range (e.g rolls, patches, retro-reflective and photoluminescent belts with a honeycomb design) also make it possible to identify soldiers.

  • Belts can also be useful for marking soldiers during night walks and runs.
  • Patches come in the form of retro-reflective and photoluminescent letters or numbers that can be attached to helmets or the shoulder area of uniforms. These patches can be sewn on or attached with the help of velcro.
  • Cyalume Flags and other badges can also be used as infrared reflector patches. They are available in both shiny and matte versions.

Training the troops / Codification of troops /Marking and identification of personnel / Reporting of presence

Cyalume sticks are used for training soldiers on the battlefield and in urban areas. They are deployed as individual or collective protective lighting. They can also identify any kind of presence on the ground of camp areas.

Cyalume sticks can also be used for the color-coded identification of manoeuvre units as well as for identifying personnel (e.g security officers, tank commanders, active special missions, medical personnel, etc…)

  • In order to be able to identify units or a leader, a color code on the back of each helmet can be set up by attaching a Mini light stick (visible or IR) to it.
  • In order to mark and identify a team leader and any unit members, the Lightshape coloured adhesive patches can be attached to helmets.
  • In order to identify dogs: a light stick attached to the backs of search dogs allows dog handlers to know the location of the dog as it progresses
  • The Cyalume 40cm white or yellow light sticks can be used as temporary lighting in order to illuminate the command post (CP), and thereby avoid constant use of the generators.
  • In order to mark free falls: MINI light sticks attached to the legs and helmets of each parachutist show the distance between the parachutists and the location of the leaders.

The police use a mini red stick for the horizontal fixed gaze nystagmus test (immediate detection of a suspected drug user no effect on the cornea). LightShape markers can also be used for:

  • Marking personnel at a crime scene
  • Attaching to a bulletproof vest as a form of personal identification
