Panoramic IR Scanners & Stand-Off Measures

Start < Page 4 of 9 > Automatic infrared systems can augment, and sometime replace radars in certain missions. Typical systems are the ADIR, from Elbit Systems and Spider or CEDAR from Controp. Such systems are comprised of a FLIR installed on a rotating plate, scanning a sector of up to 180 degrees, detecting suspicious targets, tracking them and triggering alerts...

Security Applications of Ground Surveillance Radars

Start < Page 3 of 9 > Typical military radars which can be employed for such missions include the Thales RB-12, Elta MDSR (EL/M-2129) or PPS-5 (currently enhanced by Syracuse Research Corporation into the PPS-5D version). These systems are capable of detecting a human target at a distance of 3-10 km. Airborne threats (such as ULM or UAVs) can be spotted...

TAG M65 / 80 Rotary Powered UAV

TAG has developed several types of autonomous unmanned rotorcrafts, optimized for tactical reconnaissance and surveillance missions. M65 is a miniature rotorcraft currently under production for unspecified users in the US Armed Forces. The UAV is designed to carry standardized payloads attached to the belly payload bay. Ground clearance is provided by extended landing racks. TAG developed a 36x45 cm...

Non Lethal Weapons Programs in the US

Start < Page 6 of 6 > Among the programs currently under development at the USMC Non Lethal Weapons Program are multi-sensory devices aimed to disable individuals within structures, a taser to incapacitate a single individual and mobility denial system that deploys slippery foam to impede the movement of foot and vehicular traffic. The US Navy is also developing non-lethal capabilities....

Non-lethal Chemical Agents

Start < Page 3 of 6 > Chemical compounds used for non-lethal applications include irritating and incapacitating agents, which can be dispersed as aerosol or gel. Such compounds include the pepper aerosol (also known as pepper spray or OC Oleoresin Capsicum) and various "tear gases" such as CS (ortho-chlorobenzalmalononitrile) or CN (chloroacetophenone) aerosols impact munitions. OC is considered to be more...

Non Lethal Blunt Impact Weapons

Start < Page 2 of 6 > Early generation of NLW consist of various types of low velocity blunt impact weapons, such as projectiles loaded with low-velocity / low impact ammunition such as "soft" bean-bag rounds, rubber balls, rubber or plastic coated pellets, "flash-bang"  and "hybrid" kinetic/chemical munitions. Non lethal munitions for standard weapons, currently used as part of non-lethal...

Virtual Fence – Passive Multi-Sensor System

A covert, passive device designed to detect human activity independent of a physical obstacle is the "Virtual Fence" sensor array, combining acoustic, seismic and IR sensors to detect, locate, and identify human activity in a protected area. The system designed by EROD can operate passively under adverse weather conditions, in low visibility and under heavy electromagnetic disturbances. The system...

Mikado Micro UAV

A micro UAV (MAV) designed for short missions in urban terrain, Mikado is currently under development by EMT. Weighing only 0.5kg, Mikado is designed for missions of up to 20 minutes, at a range of 500 meters. It's aerodynamic shape based on delta wings and triple fin vertical tail, and communications capabilities are optimized for operation in urban area....

StunStrike Weapon

Stunstrike is currently in development, and is expected to be ready for fielding by early 2006. StunStrike is based on an artificial lightning technology. Three products are currently under various phases of development - a Briefcase-sized unit, Close Quarters (CQ) Rifle and Short Range Perimeter system. The Briefcase unit is already operational. It is operating at a range of...

SaberShot Photonic Disruptor (Laser Dazzler)

The company received a first order for the SaberShot photonic disruptor (laser Dazzler), a high resolution green laser used to flash-blind and disorient an aggressor at long range. SaberShot is fully tested and will be used as an interim non-lethal measure by US troops. Dazzlers are available in various forms, from a pen-sized devices effective at a range of...

Saber 203 Laser Dazzler

Saber 203 laser illuminator temporarily impairs an adversary's ability to fire a weapon. The laser has an effective range of 300 meters. The operational system uses a semiconductor laser which loads into a modified M-203 40mm grenade launcher. The laser is loaded into the launcher like an actual grenade and is operated by a switch installed below the launcher....

Laser Induced Plasma Channel

Laser Induced Plasma Channel (LIPC) technology has already been used for a Portal Denial System. The system is designed to be installed as a corridor or passageway denial system that can be employed at either indoor or outdoor locations and can be configured for each individual installation’s security requirement. The system creates a laser guided electric barrier that can...

Portable Vehicle Arresting Barrier (PVAB) / Primex

The portable vehicle arresting barrier is capable of stopping a light truck (up to 3.5 tons) at speeds up to 45 mph. It can be installed by two people in less than an hour. Total weight of the system is 646 pounds. When emplaced on a road, the system provides quick and mobile deterrence to unauthorized and/or potentially suspicious...

Skjold Surface Effect Ship

The Norwegian Navy has an operational requirement for operations over a long coastal line, in the Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ) and in support of international operations. The Navy requires to operate a large number of vessels, equipped with relatively large weapons load. One of the systems that will take the challenge is the new 270 tons Skjold Surface Effect...
