Tactical, LED and Military Flashlights


More than 35 years ago, NASA was interested in developing a solar simulator for the space program to simulate sunlight outside the filtering of the atmosphere. A group of engineers set up a laboratory in Fairfield, NJ, and designed a product that generated 25 million candlepower of light. The technology developed during this research was subsequently used to design and develop a hand-held unit that produced one million candlepower that was sold to the military and law enforcement market sectors for military flashlights and tactical lights.more
