SOFIC 2018: B.E. Meyers Brings Advanced Photonics

Exhibiting its range of laser solutions for SOF applications


B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is showcasing their innovative laser technology and soldier solutions next week during the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, FL.

The company’s showcase is located just a short walk across the sky bridge from the Tampa Convention Center at the Embassy Suites, Bayside Ballroom 1 on the second floor.

Attendees are invited to visit B.E. Meyers & Co. to speak with members of their team, and to see the MAWL series of infrared and visible green weapon laser pointers/illuminators; the GLARE series of weapon mounted Hail/Warning/Illumination laser systems; the IZLID series of IR and SWIR laser pointers/illuminators for target marking and air-to-ground integration; and the BOARS-M2 optics and accessories rail for the M2 platform.

Understanding the shortcomings of common laser devices in use with both military and law enforcement, B.E. Meyers built the MAWL with three ideal settings (Close Range, Mid Range, and Long Range) which allow for seamless transitions in any operational environment. The MAWL-DA (Direct Action, class 3B) and MAWL-C1+ (Class 1+) feature high powered near infrared and visible green aiming and illumination capabilities. The MAWL-CLAD (Covert Laser Aiming Device) distinguishes itself from other MAWL variants through the inclusion of a SWIR laser pointer. Every MAWL features cutting edge Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology to provide consistently superior NIR beam quality and clarity, as well as a significantly greater illumination range.

The GLARE RECOIL, now designated the LA-22/U, was selected by USMC Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) as the sole source winner for the USMC’s Ocular Interruption Systems (OIS) programme. It features the B.E. Meyers & Co. patented SmartRange technology that utilises laser range finding and near-field detection to self-regulate power output. The result is a product that represents the pinnacle of Hail and Warning systems technology, featuring controlled EyeSafe irradiance while simultaneously achieving maximum permissible exposure on target.

B.E. Meyers also offers a class 1M variant of the LA-22/U, known as the GLARE HELIOS.

The IZLID series of NIR and SWIR laser pointers/illuminators are versatile and dependable. They allow Special Operations and conventional forces to clearly and precisely communicate with to other assets both in the sky, and on the battlefield. Primary applications include marking, pointing, targeting, and illumination. The IZLID series of lasers can be used as handheld units or mounted to various weapons systems or aircraft.

In response to the need for a modular, compact optic mount for the M2 platform, B.E. Meyers developed a revolutionary low profile mounting solution, the BOARS-M2. It offers a modular, quick-disconnect system with true return-to-zero reattach, and a pass through aperture for use with iron sights. The BOARS-M2’s low profile form factor increases operator survivability by lowering the end-user defilade.

SOFIC is showcasing the future of innovation across the Special Forces community and MONCh (Moench Online News Channel at www.monch.com) brings together key developments from the show.
