The agreement gives nLIGHT improved access to Special Forces procurement programs via CTC Defense’s extensive relationships and also paves the way for continued technology collaboration between the two companies.
CTC Defense will resell a selective product portfolio centered on nLIGHT’s multi-functional aiming laser and rangefinder system with an optional fire control module. CTC Defense has worked extensively with nLIGHT to pair their grip-activated laser sighting devices with nLIGHT’s electro-optical system expertise. “We’re excited to be able to offer the warfighter nLIGHT’s cutting edge laser technology, coupled with the instinctive user interface from CTC Defense”, said Dan Hill, nLIGHT’s Program Manager.
The agreement covers the nLIGHT’s laser rangefinder family of products including a standalone or weapon-mountable system that provides precise range determination to 2300m on a 2.3m target and gives the operator the ability to illuminate targets with both infrared (IR) and green (visible) aiming lasers. The systems can be programmed to provide numerous ballistic solutions for a variety of weapons and munitions offering advanced fire control capability.
“nLIGHT Corporation’s advanced technology and electro-optic platforms are a great benefit to our large portfolio of domestic and international military/law enforcement customers. Their expertise in their field will be a true force multiplier for us," said Dale Suzuki, Director of CTC Defense Division.
