B.E. Meyers delivers on Marine Corps contract.

Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) has selected B.E. Meyers & Co. as its sole source for the Ocular Interruption Program, the GLARE RECOIL.

The system employs a bright, green, laser beam to signal and warn of potential threats on the battlefield, providing commanders with a single, non-lethal, hail-and-warning device to use across a range of military operations. The beam is regulated by SmartRange technology, and eye safety is sustained by controlling the maximum permissible exposure (MPE) on target through pioneering EyeSafe technology.

The GLARE RECOIL represents the culmination of a decade of technological development, and also features the latest advancements in automatic power-control. It uses a 250mW maximum output power source.

"We set out to develop a system to provide a distinct tactical advantage for today's Marine," said Matt Meyers, president of B.E. Meyers. "The GLARE RECOIL system does just that by offering a weapons-mounted or hand-held, dazzling laser that can be employed during Escalation of Force (EoF) situations. Tactical decisions have strategic consequences, which is why integrating green laser hail-and-warning capability into both land and maritime based EOF measures is critical for safe, effective response at all ranges."

B.E. Meyers has made multiple deliveries to MARCORSYSCOM on an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a total budget of $49 million.
