B.E. Meyers DAGIR Multi-Platform Advanced Laser System

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc., a Defense Technology Manufacturer specializing in advanced photonic solutions for military, law enforcement, consumer, and aerospace applications worldwide, is proud to unveil the DAGIR™ Multi-Platform Advanced Laser System.

Based on a revolutionary new digital Vertical-Cavity, Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) diode core, the DAGIR™ supports the widest range of platforms and applications that allows for a singular comprehensive solution for advanced night operations.

Capability Development

To ensure a decisive advantage during night operations and increase survivability and lethality of the operator, a new weapon mounted laser pointer and illuminator system was proposed by B.E. Meyers & Co. The DAGIR™ series combines the advantages of minimal size and weight while improving performance, reliability, and operability. A new laser-based variable divergence illuminator provides ideal beam clarity over an extended application range while also decreasing response times in near and mid-range engagements. The system is designed for combat environmental criteria to include immersion, recoil, and thermal shock, while maintaining position stability and system functionality.

The DAGIR™ is intended for everything from close-range carbine use to high-power extended-range machine gun applications, as well as integration with remote weapon stations and other platforms.

Technology and Design

The technology and functionality behind the DAGIR™ have been in development for the last several years and support a design concept which allows for complete digital manipulation of all key system controls, to include power, divergence, VIS/IR, mode/function, and more. As the power and divergence controls on the DAGIR™ are completely digital, there is no optical or mechanical movement within the system apart from azimuth and elevation boresight controls. Divergence and power are synchronized for best pointing and illumination effect and are continually and instantly at the operator’s discretion through the onboard control configurations.

The design of the DAGIR™, specifically form factor, ergonomics, and functionality, is based on end-user feedback from across the spectrum of military, law enforcement, and recreational shooters which started with our introduction of MAWL®, currently with over 25,000 systems in use worldwide. DAGIR™ seeks to incorporate the most sought-after design aspects of all modern laser systems on the market and advances them.

Platforms and Applications

The versatility and ruggedness of the DAGIR™ design lends itself for use on individual weapon systems, precision rifles, crew-served weapon systems, and remote weapon stations as well as other platforms. DAGIR™ is capable of operating in training mode, or selectable power levels. Through our collaborative partnership with Unity™ Tactical that allows for the incorporation of their various remote activation cables by way of our patented Wakizashi™ communications port, we ensure a myriad of control configurations and placement options.

Features and Specifications

By orchestrating these best-in-class features and combining them with our next generation VCSEL core, the technological versatility inherent in DAGIR™ allows for an exceptionally enhanced multi-platform visible and infrared aiming and illumination laser solution. This is not just a broadening of specifications, but by questioning the status quo, the DAGIR™ exhibits a truly extraordinary pivot in combat laser system design. The DAGIR™ series of lasers, like all B.E. Meyers & Co. products, are proudly Made in the USA.

Options and Availability

The DAGIR™ series of laser systems will be available in either green or red visible wavelength options, and color options of black and flat dark earth, as well as custom configurations for certain orders. DAGIR™ is scheduled for multi-market production release in 2025 via select B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. registered resellers in the US and internationally. Market competitive pricing and additional details will be announced in advance of release.
