BE Meyers & Co, Inc Issues Statement In Support Of Chuck Pressburg

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Recently, a news release came to light identifying one of our contracted employees and brand ambassador, Mr. Charles “Chuck” Pressburg of Presscheck Consulting, in an unfortunate firearms incident. The media coverage of this incident is vague and allows for misperception. In addition to this limited reporting by the press, malicious speculation online is fueling and in some way exacerbating many inaccuracies in the story.

This incident is by no means indicative of the performance or standards that we know Chuck to uphold, and in no way impacts his credentials as a Subject Matter Expert on the topic of low-light operations as well as night vision and laser combat employment. He represents our brand, and we support him as strongly today as we ever have.

While this was an obviously unfortunate incident involving our brand ambassador, the details of the situation will come out at a time and in a method that are legally appropriate. While it would not be appropriate for our brand ambassador to make a statement himself at this time, B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. and industry entities cited in this message stand in his support to speak for him.

I encourage the community to take a pause, know that all the details cannot be currently released, and to question the narrative provided to them by the Oregon media that has spread to the national press level. Stop breaking out the Jump-to-Conclusions Mat, stop trying to fill in the blanks erroneously, and start letting the facts develop. Let the legal system work, and come to your own conclusions in due time.

I personally stand with Chuck.
B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. stands with Chuck.
Those of character in this industry stand with Chuck.

We are ALL, all in for Chuck.

Seattle Police SWAT and King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office SWAT Adopt the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. MAWL Laser Aiming System

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

November 21st, 2016 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. Advanced Photonics, which specializes in laser systems for national defense, law enforcement, and aerospace is proud to announce that their Modular Advanced Weapon Laser (MAWL™) has been adopted as the new standard by both the Seattle Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), as well as the King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office Special Operations team.

These two teams provide tactical response services for over 2 million citizens in the greater Seattle area. Both SPD SWAT and KCSO SWAT explored multiple laser aiming systems before choosing the MAWL™ for their weapon pointing and illumination requirements in June 2016. The MAWL™ enables their SWAT officers to safely and effectively conduct high-risk tasks in complex low-light environments.

Officer Kirk Waldorf, Seattle Police SWAT Team R&D Lead said, “When my team decided to improve our night vision capabilities, we evaluated four of the best aiming devices available. The MAWL™ was without equal, and no other device offered the capabilities and functions of the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. system. In the end, we decided not to compromise on quality or performance and chose the MAWL™ for the entire team.” Deputy Tony Mullinax, KCSO Special Operations said, “The MAWL™ has dramatically increased our ability to safely operate at night, allowing us to make better decisions about if and when to use force.”

As the first US law enforcement departments to adopt the MAWL™ using the FDA law enforcement variance for this system, the teams were trained on the advantages of the MAWL™ system by Presscheck Consulting and Tap-Rack Tactical, both of which provide specialized training in operating under night vision in tactical situations.

Matt Meyers, President of B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. said, “We’re excited that the first teams to adopt the MAWL™ are local law enforcement organizations that B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. has had relationships with since our founding in 1974. Both Seattle PD and King County Sheriff’s Office SWAT are highly regarded professionals who display proficiency in tactical operations, and we are honored that they chose us to meet their equipment needs.”

B.E. Meyers Awarded Sole Source Contract by USMC for Ocular Interruption System

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

R3February 10, 2016 (Redmond, WA) – Marine Corps Systems Command has selected B.E. Meyers & Co. as their sole source for the Ocular Interruption Program. The GLARE® RECOIL employs a dazzling laser to hail and warn potential threats while implementing escalation of force procedures. Commanders have a single, non-lethal hail and warning capable device to use across the range of Marine Corp military operations.

The GLARE® RECOIL represents the culmination of a decade of technological development used to create the safest and most effective ocular interruption laser in the world. The GLARE® RECOIL features pioneering EyeSafe® technology with the latest advancements in automatic power control.


The GLARE® RECOIL uses a 250mW maximum output power source, while its safety control design establishes the laser safety classification as a 2M laser system by using a Laser Range Finder (LRF), Near Field Detector (NFD), and 3-axis Gyroscope. This approach to laser safety in an ocular interruption device is unique to the B.E. Meyers design. The green beam is always effectively regulated by SmartRange™ technology and eye safety is sustained through controlling the maximum permissible exposure (MPE) on target.

“We set out to develop a system to provide a distinct tactical advantage for today’s Marine.” stated B.E. Meyers President Matt Meyers. “The GLARE® RECOIL system does just that by offering a weapons-mounted or hand-held dazzling laser that can be employed during Escalation of Force (EoF) situations. Tactical decisions have strategic consequences, which is why integrating green laser hail and warning capability into both land and maritime based EOF measures is critical for safe, effective response at all ranges”.


B.E. Meyers has made multiple successful deliveries to MARCORSYSCOM on an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a total budget of $49MM. In September 2015, B.E. Meyers became the sole source awardee for MARCORSYSCOM’s Ocular Interruption Program, contract number M67854-14-D-1040.
