General Dynamics Awarded Contract for Laser Energetics' Dazer Laser(TM)
June 15, 2010

CHARLOTTE, N.C., -General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products has been awarded a $2.6 million contract by Laser Energetics, Inc. (Pink Sheets: LNGT), to produce the new non-lethal Dazer Laser(TM) - Light Fighting Technologies. General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

The Dazer Laser product line currently consists of the GUARDIAN and DEFENDER models and is designed for use by the military and law enforcement entities when non-lethal force is an option. The Dazer Laser's continuous wave and modulating green laser beam temporarily impair a threat's vision and awareness in an instant. The products operate on standard batteries, are lightweight and ergonomically comfortable. The Dazer's patented variable- range laser differentiates the product, allowing for effective use at distances from 1 to 2,400 meters (model dependent).

According to Bill Gural, vice president and general manager of Detection Systems for General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, "These safe, non-lethal hand held systems can effectively stop hostile operations in a variety of environments and can be used in both counterterrorism and security applications."

Work will be performed at General Dynamic's production facility in Charlotte, N.C., and is expected to begin this month. "This award is a great foundation for building on our relationship with Laser Energetics," said Gural.
