Chemiluminescent green marker from Cyalume to be used by General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems for ammunition payload illumination and marking
General Dynamics ordnance and Tactical Systems has entered into a strategic agreement with Cyalume Technologies to develop and market training, illumination and marking payloads that use Cyalume's chemiluminescent 'green' technology for US military Ammunition applications.

The integration of chemiluminescent 'green' technology into training Ammunition will provide enhanced capabilities for soldiers to conduct integrated day/night training on multiple platforms for weapons qualification and combat manoeuvre training at a significant cost savings to the US Government in range cleanup and maintenance programs, eliminating unexploded ordinance (UXO) and reducing the environmental impact.

'The military has expressed an increased need for advanced training, marking and illumination payloads,' said Michael Wilson, president of General Dynamics ordnance and Tactical Systems. 'Over the past several years Cyalume Technologies has developed numerous advanced materials that when loaded into our Ammunition will enhance training and provide a tactical advantage for our soldiers.'

'The combination of General Dynamics' Ammunition manufacturing expertise and the advanced payloads developed by Cyalume will result in a huge payoff for our soldiers,' said Derek Dunaway, CEO of Cyalume Technologies. 'Our payloads offer the benefits of a non-toxic, non-flammable, non-incendiary and non-dud producing Ammunition that is environmentally friendly and will provide advanced marking and illumination effects, while reducing or eliminating collateral damage.'
