BE Meyers has been selected by the US Marine Corps (USMC) Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) to serve as the sole source provider for the Ocular Interruption (OI) programme.

The Ocular Interruption system will provide a weapons-mounted or hand-held dazzling laser employed during Escalation of Force (EoF) situations.

It is set to replace the Glare Mout 532P-M and LA-9/P Green Beam Dazzling Laser Systems employed by the USMC units to address an Urgent Universal Need Statement.

Meyers has utilised its technology, the Glare Recoil weapon-mounted hail and warning laser system, to employ a laser to issue a warning against any potential threat following the deployment of force to stop the attack.

It comes in the form of single, non-lethal hail and warning capable device integrated across the range of USMC military operations.
