Cyberlux Corporation, developer of breakthrough lighting technologies, will partner with Sacred Power Corporation to offer previously unavailable lighting solutions to government and commercial projects.
At the heart of the partnership are Cyberlux’s revolutionary and patented illumination technologies, based upon the use of Gallium Nitride light emitting diodes. These state-of-the-art lighting elements consume 92% less energy than incandescent or fluorescent counterparts. In addition, the expected life of Gallium Nitride diodes is over 20 years, versus only 750 hours for traditional incandescent bulbs. The new technology is already being used as a low-energy, high-output, long-life solution in traffic lights and automotive break light applications.
Merging high-efficiency lighting with the renewable non-grid capabilities provided by solar power is a natural combination. The two companies will work together to take advantage of solid-state lighting and solar power opportunities in the energy, security, and power surety market segments. The partnership has already been awarded a contract from Sandia National Laboratories, on behalf of the Department of Defense, to provide solar powered security lighting, both visible and IR, across a variety of DOD agencies. Cyberlux will provide the LED security lighting solution, with Sacred Power providing solar power.
Cyberlux President and CEO, Mark Schmidt, explained what the partnership means for Cyberlux, “While our existing Portable Illumination Systems continue to drive growth with record year-over-year sales, by incorporating Sacred Power’s renewable power expertise and our superior lighting technologies into sustainable product solutions, we anticipate substantial opportunities within the energy, security and power surety market segments in 2009 and beyond. We look forward to bringing our tactical lighting systems capability, and the core patented technology embedded in our products, to the numerous Sacred Power customer and channel opportunities as well.”
The U.S. Patent Office recently awarded patent protection for 50 claims contained within Cyberlux patents, providing the company patent protection for its tactical lighting products and any future products developed on this patent foundation.
