Through experimentation technicians at SRT generate
data on the amount of non-lethal stimulus necessary to be effective yet minimize the risk of significant injury. Technicians
then use this information to develop or refine non-lethal human effects models. Technicians and medical staff validate and
verify the Human Effects Modeling Analysis Program they have developed to ensure the components are generating accurate and
non-lethal weapons do
not have the deadly
stopping power of high velocity bullets fired from a firearm, such deadly force is generally not necessary to deter many typical
crimes. Moreover, there are many situations where deadly force is either, not needed or wanted.
ShockRounds™ are designed to produce a powerful shock wave or pulse just
before it hits the target. This shock wave can be likened to a "flash bang" effect but is non-flammable and produces
no significant heat. It will however knock the assailant or combatant to the ground with considerable force. It may, depending
on the location of the shock, knock the person unconscious without causing any permanent damage. In military terms this will
disable the combatant and not allow that person to make a military move.
PepperRounds™ are designed to cause considerable pain and produce the sensation
of burning to the eyes and tissue. PAVA and Capsaicin are incapacitants and serve to discourage the assailant. Capsaicin
also causes breathing difficulty. Since the projectile is actuated before it hits the target, the incapacitant is dispersed
better and therefore much more effective than pepper balls that break on impact.
