Chemlights, versatile lightsticks used extensively by the US military, serve as crucial tools for marking, signaling, and providing illumination in low-light conditions. Manufactured by Cyalume Technologies, these lightsticks can be easily activated by a “bend and shake” technique, resulting in a chemically induced glow. Chemlights are especially valued for their adaptability, aiding in military exercises, tactical operations, search and rescue operations, and even covert missions using infrared illumination visible only through night vision goggles.
