B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce that the U.S. Marine Corps has designated their GLARE RECOIL™ non-lethal Hail and Warning device the official Joint Electronic Type Designation System (JETDS) identifier LA-22/U with an NSN of 5860-01-657-3893, as part of the Ocular Interrupter System (OIS) program.
The LA-22/U is an internally funded and developed 250mW maximum output green laser dazzler. In February of 2016, it was selected by the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) to replace the GLARE MOUT 532P-M or “MiniGreen”, and GBDIIIC W/SCM (LA-9/P), and provide an advanced non-lethal Escalation of Force solution for Hail and Warning combat applications on land and sea. The LA-22/U is currently in production and being delivered by B.E. Meyers & Co., the sole source provider to MARCORSYSCOM for the $49M IDIQ Ocular Interruption System (OIS) program, contract number M67854-14-D-1040.
Fitted with B.E. Meyers’ groundbreaking and patented SmartRange™ technology, the GLARE RECOIL™ integrates laser range finding, near-field detection, and a 3-axis gyroscope into the unit’s safety controls. This technology allows it to detect objects/persons entering the proximity of the beam, and self-regulates the power output to maintain controlled EyeSafe™ Class 2M irradiance while ensuring maximum permissible exposure on target.
The GLARE RECOIL™ also features a motorized zoom for variable beam divergence and a pulse mode for optimal effect. It can be mounted onto any existing weapon system with a MIL-STD-1913 rail mount, can be employed in a handheld-only configuration, or integrated into existing Remote Weapon System platforms.
Additionally, the GLARE HELIOS™ is the Class 1M variant of the LA-22/U (GLARE RECOIL™), and is only green laser Hail and Warning system certified by the FDA for use by Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement agencies.
