via PRNewswire

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cyberlux Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the Company has gained approval from the United States General Services Administration (GSA) for its advanced solid-state lighting systems under Federal Supply Schedule 56 for Specialty Lighting products.

Under the terms of the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract, Cyberlux, as a primary contractor, can now sell its advanced solid-state light-emitting diode (LED) lighting systems, developed by Cyberlux for the United States AirForce and for general military-grade lighting purposes, to all government organizations including all branches of the military, the National Guard andthe Department of Homeland Security. The FSS contract period is effective immediately and extends through March 2011 .

Cyberlux has developed thermal and energy management algorithms, advancedoptics, and lightweight mobilization packaging that maximize system performance to meet rigorous field requirements that encompass high-power lighting sources that are mounted on portable tripods and powered by lithiumion batteries. The portable package weighs less than 50 pounds and can be carried to remote locations and deployed rapidly to provide boundary security lighting.

The Watchdog Portable Covert Illumination System provides security lighting for an exterior boundary of 300 x 300 feet with either visible lightor covert infrared light that is compatible with night-vision goggles (NVGs).It was designed to protect military assets on the ground, such as an airplane, by creating a "lightless" zone around the asset while illuminating the surrounding protection boundary. In covert illumination mode, the system increases the visibility of NVGs by almost 4-fold. The BrightEye Portable Visible Illumination System is a high-powered visible lighting system that provides over 600 feet of perimeter security lighting and is a portable solution for high intensity lighting applications.

"The ability of Cyberlux to offer our advanced illumination systems through the GSA Federal Supply Schedule contracting system is another significant milestone for the Company. This GSA exposure will allow all government organizations and agencies to have access to our breakthrough illumination systems and advanced solid-state lighting technology," said Donald F. Evans, chief executive officer of Cyberlux. "With Cyberlux now having primary contractor status to supply the WatchDog and BrightEye products, we expect our system sales to expand into other branches of the military through this newly attained GSA listing."
