Jim Marcelli, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic stated, "We think this is the perfect forum to unveil our new product development strategy. We intend to outline some of our most interesting new product development paths that we believe will vastly improve the performance of next generation applications such as Google's autonomous car, smart weapon systems that are currently under development by companies like Northrop, Boeing and General Dynamics and various high end security systems used throughout the world to monitor cities, ports, and airports, etc.

"New ultra fast image recognition engines based on our materials will vastly improve current LCD technology.  Taken together with our currently development programs such as Lockheed and Celestech and others, we believe that developing our own products based on our advanced Electro-Optic polymer materials platform will add another leg of shareholder value."

Phillips W. Smith, Lightwave's Chairman of the Board, commented, "Many people understand that Lightwave Logic has some of the world's foremost polymer chemistry expertise but, we also possess advanced systems design capability. Now with validated materials in hand, combining these two core competencies to develop our own products is a winning strategy which puts us in control of our own destiny."
