Navy Researchers Solicit Non-Lethal Public Safety Tech Ideas

research and development RDThe Office of Naval Research is seeking industry proposals for non-lethal systems that can be deployed to subdue potentially dangerous people and activities that endanger public safety, Military Aerospace & Electronics reported Tuesday.

John Keller writes that ONR wants to develop 14 types of non-lethal weapons, including human electro-muscular incapacitation, non-pyrotechnic flashbang and hail-and-warn devices.

Authorities use non-lethal technology to disable attackers, stop ground or marine vehicles, disperse crowds and control riots, according to Keller.

This kind of weapon is intended to cause temporary blindness, pain, confusion, disorientation or muscle spasm to an enemy, Keller says.
