NORCROSS, Ga. -- Light Management Group Inc., (NASD-OTC/BB: LMGR), developer of new applications in optical and light technologies, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) to evaluate LMG's innovative acousto-optic switches for potential application to Boeing products. Light Management Group's unique technology employs sound waves to manipulate light waves, thus yielding several distinct advantages over other all-optical technologies. LMG's acousto-optic switch operates at a speed of less than 5 microseconds, representing a 1,000-fold advantage over today's Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology. LMG's switch, which can transform optical signals from one input channel to over 1,000 output channels, contains no moving parts and has performed over one trillion cycles entirely free of maintenance. "Light Management Group's arrangement with Boeing represents a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of our acousto-optic switch," said Barrington L. Simon, CEO and Chairman of Light Management Group Inc. "We look forward with great anticipation to the validation of our technologies through the scientific findings that will be derived from a company whose scientists and engineers have touched the lives of so many with their technology."
