LaserMax Delivers Thermal Laser Prototype to U.S. Navy

 

Rochester, NY – LaserMax® today announced delivery of a Thermal Collimated Aiming Device (TCAD) prototype to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, as part of a development contract (Solicitation N0016410RJQ60) with the U.S. Navy for proprietary out-of-band laser technology. Tested to withstand both harsh environmental conditions and the rigors of battle, LaserMax’s TCAD utilizes a “first of its kind” application of Quantum Cascade Laser technology that will enable armed forces to effectively target enemy combatants without sacrificing covert positioning. Designed to complement existing military equipment inventory, the TCAD prototype interfaces with Long Wave Thermal Imagers currently issued to U.S. Special Operations units, offering a distinct tactical advantage expected to prevent American casualties.

In use since the early 1970′s, near infrared spectrum technology became a multi-billion dollar industry that formerly allowed U.S. soldiers to “own the night.” Unfortunately, the gradual availability of this equipment by the enemy has progressively compromised this advantage, putting troops at risk. Adoption of long-wave thermal laser technology by the U.S. military represents a game-changing strategy that will prevent loss of life and, by utilizing existing inventory, is anticipated to save millions in tax-payer dollars. The list of compatible imagers includes Excellus PSQ20, Optics1 COTI, Raytheon PAS-13 and L3 CNVD-T. Having met the package requirements for SWaP (Size, Weight and Performance), TCAD units were then thoroughly tested by the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Crane Division (NSWC Crane), which confirmed that the technology has met the requirements with an assortment of thermal imagers. TCAD units will now undergo final field testing in order to refine specifications for the development of production units.

LaserMax successfully demonstrated a variation of this technology specifically designed for the U.S. Army, the Carbine Thermal Aiming Laser (CTAL), during this year’s Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE), Spiral H. Having been again selected for participation in next year’s AEWE exercise, Spiral I, the focus will be to optimize size and weight while improving performance.

LaserMax launches CenterFire™ Laser for Ruger® LCR® revolver

LaserMax has announced they are shipping their CenterFire laser for the Ruger LCR revolver. The new laser is compatible with all three Ruger LCR calibers (.22, .380 and .357) and adds to the already available Ruger pistol offering which includes the Ruger LCP and LC9.

The CenterFire laser for the Ruger LCR revolver offers seamless integration with the firearm to allow owners the benefits and confidence a laser provides without added bulk or sacrificed concealability. Controlled Activation™ gives users the confidence to control their situation – letting them choose when the laser turns on and won’t reveal their position while unholstering, reloading or on the move. The laser mounts directly to the frame without changing out parts – user installed in minutes. The constant red laser beam sits just under the bore for the highest accuracy and prevents the user’s finger from blocking the beam. Like all CenterFire Lasers, it sells for $129 MSRP. Orders will begin shipping on November 9, 2012 allowing retailers the opportunity to capitalize on the forthcoming holiday season.

“We are excited to have worked with Ruger to develop a laser solution that seamlessly integrates with the LCR,” says Kurt Worden, VP of Sales. “It also offers the many Ruger LCR customers a laser as reliable as their revolver.”

LaserMax Launches First Laser Specifically Designed for Beretta Nano Pistol

LaserMax today announced they are shipping their CenterFire laser for the Beretta Nano 9mm pistol. Pre-orders are currently being filled as a priority with new orders being accepted through normal distribution channels.

Less has never been more. The CenterFire laser for the Beretta Nano 9mm pistol offers seamless integration with the firearm to allow owners the benefits and confidence a laser provides without added bulk or sacrificed concealability. Controlled Activation™ gives users the confidence to control their situation – letting them choose when the laser turns on and won’t reveal their position while unholstering, reloading or on the move. The laser mounts directly to the frame without changing out parts – user installed in minutes. The constant red laser beam sits just under the bore for the highest accuracy and prevents the user’s finger from blocking the beam. And LaserMax quality at an MSRP of $129.

“We are pleased to be the first to offer owners of the popular Beretta Nano, a laser solution that integrates so well with the pistol making it difficult to know where the gun ends and the laser begins.” says Eric Haase, VP of Sales. “This combined with Controlled Activation and consistent accuracy further enhances the user’s confidence to command their situation.”

LaserMax Announces Resolution of Crimson Trace Litigation

Rochester, NY — LaserMax announced today a highly favorable conclusion of the patent infringement litigation initiated by Crimson Trace against three of LaserMax’s product lines in Portland Oregon, in January 2009. Last week the Court ordered public disclosure of the following settlement terms:

• There was no finding of liability on the part of LaserMax
• LaserMax pays no money to Crimson Trace
• Crimson Trace must grant LaserMax irrevocable, royalty-free licenses for each of the three remaining patents in the suit.

The Court also ordered Crimson Trace to pay LaserMax $10,000 in sanctions. Other terms of the settlement remain confidential. LaserMax also caused Crimson Trace to withdraw one of its principal patents from the suit and to grant LaserMax an unconditional covenant not to sue under that patent prior to the settlement. Furthermore, LaserMax contested the validity of another Crimson Trace patent in a proceeding before the U.S. Patent Office, rendering that patent unenforceable and dedicated to the public.

LaserMax CEO Susan Houde-Walter said “The resolution is good news for LaserMax and our customers, so we can continue our focus in delivering the best and most innovative laser aiming products to the market, as we have in the past.”

LaserMax continues to bring innovative products to market at a fair price, including the new GENESISTM, the world’s first rechargeable green laser, and the Uni-Max ® MICRO, the world’s smallest rail mount laser. LaserMax is best known for its signature product line of internal Guide Rod Lasers.
