Cyalume is the sole supplier of Chemlight lightsticks to NATO countries through current NSPA contract (Cage code FAK27) and US contracts (Cage code 0BY83).
Cyalume is the only manufacturer who has submitted a technical package with DLA (Defense Logistics Agency) in the US and received a positive feedback on the performance of the products meeting and exceeding the current specifications for all commercial NSN items such as the 6” products Chemlight.
Note that no other manufacturer has ever been checked for performance by DLA and printed NSN on their packaging is a self-certification and at the risk of the buyer. The current specifications for 6” products have been upgraded by DLA in September 2013. To our knowledge no other manufacturer except Cyalume can meet or exceed these new specifications.
