Cyalume is the ideal tactical lighting for armed forces

All the armed forces (Army, Air Force, Navy) as well as security and first responders (police, special forces, firefighters,…) use Cyalume lightsticks to mark, signal and identify in particularly dangerous situations, such as combat operations or natural disasters.

Cyalume products are developed hand-in-hand with the US Army and, traditionally, are intended for NATO forces. Cyalume is the sole manufacturer offering NATO tested and approved products, complying with the requirements of the NATO Stock Number (NSN). Cyalume is the authorized manufacturer for products with an NSN referenced with NATO. The company is the sole supplier of chemiluminescent products working under a NATO contract in Europe and in the USA.

Cyalume France manufactures and retails visible and infrared tactical lights in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Cyalume chemiluminescent lighting produces instant light which is self-sufficient and maintenance free.

A range of lightsticks designed specifically for the various Armed Forces

As an essential player in the world of tactical and security lighting for armed forces, Cyalume proposes a wide range of lighting products in various colors, shapes and sizes, designed to address the issues facing defense and security forces, in particular for marking out, tracing, identification and evacuation. They are activated by a bend, snap and shake action to offer visible or infrared light lasting between 5 minutes and 24 hours. Retro-reflective and photoluminescent items fill out the range of ChemLight and SnapLight products. The company is also the leader for “green” training ordnance, that is, without an explosive payload (except for the means of propulsion). The 40mm tracer training cartridge, non-polluting and non-incendiary, is a unique solution proposed by Cyalume as practice ammunition.

With considerable experience from theaters of operations and training ranges, Cyalume has the capacity to propose the ideal product for the various armed forces:
