REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PEO Soldier, through its Soldier Maneuver Sensors Office, has announced B.E. Meyers as the winner of the Green Laser Interdiction System (GLIS) Program. This award reinforces B.E. Meyers’ leadership position in the non-lethal laser market, and maintains the GLARE® product line as the only widely deployed non-lethal green lasers in use by the U.S. military. This latest award calls for an initial delivery of 12,542 units of the new GLARE® MOUT Plus non-lethal laser, and provides for additional orders in 2012 and 2013.
“This win is the culmination of two years of effort to develop and deliver the best non-lethal laser device to the U.S. Army,” said Brad Meyers, CEO of B.E.
