CMC Government Supply Now Offers the Latest in IR Tracking Products

CMC Government Supply is proud to announce that they now carry Cyalume Total IR infrared detection powder. This innovative product is ideal for use in border patrol operations, crime scenes, tracking and locating, and other tactical operations.

According to Debby Parker, Vice President of CMC Government Supply, this product is a great addition to their company’s line of tactical products. “Cyalume Total IR can be a valuable tool for law enforcement and border operations. For example, with this product, agencies can now follow a trail of footprints for up to 48 hours after the initial incident.”

513b6b+MjlLTotal IR is a spreadable, infrared emitting powder that can resemble ordinary soil. It is non-toxic and cannot be distinguished by the human eye, requiring a night vision device to view. Total IR is an undetectable way to guard restricted areas, fence lines, trespass areas, or crime scenes. The product has a slight tackiness to it, allowing it to adhere to shoes, tires, or clothing. This makes it the perfect tracking tool for border and restricted entry areas. Total IR will emit IR light from 36-48 hours after deployment, depending on environmental conditions. The best results are achieved when deployed in a low humidity environment, making it perfect for southern border control operations. When used indoors, Total IR will produce light for up to a full week.

Total IR comes in a one pound bag in either loam or sand tinting. It is only sold to law enforcement and US military agencies, and can be purchased from CMC Government Supply directly or through BuyBoard. For more information, visit

CMC Government Supply is Authorized Reseller of Cyalume ChemLight Infrared Light Sticks and Markers

CMC Government Supply is an Authorized Reseller of Cyalume Technologies’ Law Enforcement products.  Many of these products are important tools for Law Enforcement and Homeland Security personnel performing special operations and training at night.

Of particular importance are ChemLight Infrared (IR) Light Sticks and Markers because IR lights are invisible to the human eye. They can only be seen with night vision goggles and devices.  ChemLight Infrared products are used for such things as marking vehicles and objects as well as personnel and K9 units. They are also used in signaling and to  mark landing zones.  From an aerial vantage point, locating an IR light or marker can be speedy and efficient. Deployed in a number of ways by tactical teams, units, special operations, and more, these military grade IR light sticks can make a difference when it counts.

A special feature of the ChemLight IR Light is a hook and gate top for hanging or attaching the light. They are durable, waterproof and float in water.  The body is made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and the illuminating chemical substance is non-toxic and non-flammable. These products phthalate free for environmental and personal safety. All Cyalume products have a three-year shelf life.

Another unique option is the Flexband Chemiluminescent (IR) which is a 7.5 inch circular band that can easily attach to wrists, tree branches, door knobs, or anywhere a covert marker is needed.

“IR lights are invaluable tools. They can provide mission-critical information when deployed at night or low-light. We choose to provide Cyalume ChemLights which are made in the USA and are very safe and dependable. They are the preferred choice for IR lights in specialized military and law enforcement tactical operations,” stated Debby Parker, Vice President of CMC Government Supply.
