Proposal Title: A Non-Lethal, Non-Tethered, Inexpensive Electro-Muscular Disruption Projectile
Topic Number: H-SB05.1-005
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: INNOVATIVE LESS-LETHAL DEVICES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
Organization: Lynntech, Inc.

Abstract: Recent trends in law enforcement clearly illustrate the effectiveness of the taser to debilitate even the toughest targets, without causing permanent injury or lingering after-effects. Current electric stun technology is either hand-held or short-range and tethered to the launch platform. The law enforcement agencies would greatly benefit from a longer range (6 to 40 meters), non-tethered electric stun projectile. The introduction of tasers caused sharp decreases in injuries to both police officers and suspects. It is expected that a longer range device would provide the same results. Lynntech proposes to design, fabricate, and test a non-lethal, non-tethered, electro-muscular disruption (EMD) projectile for a 40mm grenade launcher. A standard 12 gauge shotgun cartridge will be developed during the Phase II effort. The projectile will not require modification to the launch platform, will include wireless activated follow-up EMD capability, and will not be enabled until after the projectile has been launched. These features will ensure user safety before, during, and after firing and will allow for administration of additional doses to the target as required. Potential applications include the military and law enforcement agencies throughout the world, security personnel at airports, banks, private organizations, and everyday citizens seeking personal and property protection.
