The term Photonic Barrier was coined in modern night vision tactical training by John “Chappy” Chapman of LMS Defense. Although I was very familiar with photonic barriers in real world applications over my 26 years of SOF experience, in the military we always called it “whiting out” or “Blooming” which were descriptions of what we were seeing in our Image Intensification(I2) devices.

SEMA 2018 finished last week, wrapping up the first year of B.E. Meyers & Co.’s participation in one of the world’s premier auto shows. While SEMA may seem an unlikely place to find a laser manufacturer, B.E. Meyers & Co., who is known for innovative defense and aerospace solutions, had something truly unique to share with the automotive industry. The “MAWLR”, a Lexus LX570 that B.E. Meyers & Co. and Defconbrix transformed into the ultimate overland vehicle, was unveiled at SEMA in the Toyo Tires Treadpass. It is extremely rare to see an LX570 configured for off-road use, and none have a story quite like the MAWLR’s.
When Sean Jennings of Defconbrix picked up the Lexus LX570 from B.E. Meyers & Co. in Redmond, WA last February, it was a completely stock vehicle with a long way to go before it would become the MAWLR. The Lexus had belonged to the founder of B.E. Meyers & Co., the late Brad Meyers. To honor Brad’s adventurous spirit, and his leg

In March of 2017 Brad Meyers, Founder of B.E. Meyers & Co., passed away after an amazing life. He was an innovator, inventor, and was always looking to create something new and exciting. This Lexus LX570 was his daily driver, and he drove it to work every day with his dog Shadow always in the back seat. After his passing, Brad’s car sat in the B.E. Meyers & Co. warehouse for over a year, but it wasn’t ready to retire just yet.
In memory of Brad’s adventurous spirit, B.E. Meyers & Co. and Defconbrix are transforming his car into a purpose-built overland vehicle dubbed the “MAWLR” to travel with them as they showcase their Modular Advanced Weapon Laser, the MAWL®. You can follow the MAWLR build on Instagram (@the.mawlr) and Facebook (@mawlr).
The completed MAWLR build will be unveiled in the Toyo Tires Treadpass area at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nevada October 30 – November 2, 2018.

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. has released two Class 4 IZLID® Ultra Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) laser Pointers and Illuminators in 1064 nm and 1550 nm. Featuring the highest power of B.E. Meyers & Co.’s SWIR IZLID® family, the IZLID® Ultra 1064 nm/1550 nm is a powerful beam with up to 1 Watt of out-of-band Pointing and Illumination capabilities, facilitating effective Air to Ground Integration marking and communication. While compatible with a variety of SWIR systems currently in use with Special Operations Forces (including E-COSI), the IZLID® Ultra SWIR variants are undetectable by most common Near Infrared (NIR) night vision devices.
The IZLID® Ultra SWIR variants can be used as handheld devices or rail-mounted on a weapon platform. These lasers retain the same rugged, dependable features of the IZLID® Ultra (NIR) that has become the standard JTAC tool for night Close Air Support, and Close Combat Attack scenarios. The beam size and intensity of the IZLID® Ultra fa

B.E. Meyers & Co. has enhanced the capabilities of the Modular Advanced Weapon Laser (MAWL®) with its latest offering, the EndCap 2 (EC2). In keeping with B.E. Meyers & Co.’s unwavering commitment to the end user, the EC2 introduces two new features for improved performance with the MAWL:
1. A Threaded battery cap that allows for replacement of the MAWL’s battery without tools.
2. Redesigned remote fire ports for easy access when the MAWL is mounted to a platform.
Performing a battery change on the MAWL is simplified with the EC2. Its threaded battery cap can be loosened or tightened by hand, and makes the MAWL easy to maintain in environments where time is critical, and small tools may not be available or practical.
The redesigned geometry of the EC2 moves the remote fire ports to the top of the endcap and spaces them apart to facilitate quick access when the MAWL is mounted to a rifle. This extended spacing also provides addi

February 14, 2018 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the M2A1F Flash Hider, developed in response to requests for a more durable flash suppression solution for the M2A1. Leveraging patented flash suppression design, the M2A1F preserves the superior performance and durability that the warfighter has come to expect from B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. products.
The M2A1F is made from a specific selected alloy that has been heat treated to provide increased durability, and reliability over current competitive devices. Its left-hand thread pitch allows for quick and easy installation, and eliminates risk of separation from the barrel by self-tightening as shots are fired.
The M2A1F is a truly compact M2A1 flash hider. Measuring in at only 4.625” long, the M2A1F represents only a small increase in overall length of the weapon platform when compared to other legacy M2 variants, and does not negatively affect the cyclic rate of
