Alfalight Receives $49M IDIQ Contract for Delivery of Ocular Interruption Laser System to US Marine Corps
Rugged Eye-Safe Green Laser to Enhance Non-Lethal Capability
MADISON, WI – May 29, 2014 – Alfalight, Inc., a leading developer of high-performance infrared and visible laser systems for defense and security applications, announced it has received an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the United States Marine Corps System Command. The contract has a maximum value of $49 million over a period of 5 years.
Under the terms of the contract, Alfalight will deliver their NLOD-ES (Non-Lethal Ocular Disruptor with Enhanced Safety) to MARCORSYSCOM in Quantico, Virginia, later this year.
