Non-lethal weapon of offense (UPM), in this phrase alone is a contradiction. Any of us with young people knows that the appointment of at least some guns in the end is murder. And it’s so far so, but in some situations it is necessary to have at hand such means of destruction that can be used for the temporary removal of people from the building. With all of this a number of such funds has been quite long, they include rubber bullets or tear gas.
But the fight against crime, terrorism and mass mess bezotstupno requests the creation of new tools, new ways and means. Seems more urgent use of non-lethal weapons in the different samples of peacekeeping operations under the auspices of the UN, and from time to time and in severe combat task. Currently, work on creating rich OND underway in the U.S. and some other countries. Virtually all done now rarely fatal weapon based on the following principles of impact: mechanical, acoustic, chemical, electronic, electrical or optical.
Work on creating such tools are being held in Russia. Namely, not so long ago, it was reported that experts at the Research Institute of the Ministry of Defence are working on electrical testing non-lethal weapons. Developing such tools associated with worsening of the political situation within the country. Authorities fear that the multi-million rallies and demonstrations that take place in Moscow, could eventually grow into a massive mess. According to Head of the Research Institute of the Ministry of Defense Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Soskov developed setting is intended for non-lethal effects on humans. As head of the striking factor in it is used very frequency (EHF) electric radiation.
Active Denial System — Active Denial System
Directional beam of this installation causes unbearable pain a person senses. According spetsa generated installing powerful beam begins to interact with the moisture contained in the upper layers of human skin and seeps inside just only on the tenth bit of mm. With all this and such exposure is pretty. According Soskov impact on internal organs completely excluded. With all this data beam irradiated person begins to experience severe burning of the skin, which can cause thermal shock him. Exposed installation subconsciously trying to hide from the invisible beam striking. The implication is that with rubber truncheons, tear gas «Prunus» and water cannons, electric rays become the main instrument of militia during acceleration unauthorized demonstrations and rallies.
It should be noted that even before this development was introduced in the United States and received the title of the Active Denial System (ADS — Active Denial System), this system is known under a different name — «a ray of pain.» For the first time the existence of programs from ADS general public found out in 2011. South American development illegal guns also focused on the acceleration of rallies. Through the use of high-frequency electric rays it can hit targets at a distance of 1 kilometer.
This setting is based on a special truck or car «Hammer». Used in the Active Denial System high-frequency electrical oscillations do not cause harm to humans, with all this, the latter creating a sense of unbearable heat, which is why the development and received the title of «pain ray» or «heat ray.» According to the head of the Joint Directorate of nonlethal weapon types Tracy Tafolla, people can not help but see the not hear, do not sniff this beam. According to the views of spices, this new product can be attributed to a non-hazardous types of weapons, which is used today. It does not cause cancer in humans, it does not change the genes that could be bad for his children. For added security while working Active Denial System may be forcibly limited to 3 seconds.
Unlike rubber bullets or the same batons and tear gas, such kind of gun is not dangerous even for pregnant women. However, according to the views of some skeptics, the introduction of such rays in practice could threaten the emergence of panic in the mass of people. As a result, an instrument can throw even after the introduction of more victims than the application of the classical bomb.
Below you can get acquainted with the 10 species of non-lethal weapons, which today are more famous in the world. Most of them can be attributed to even comical, yet these developments really existed. Who knows, maybe in the future combat such acts will be held makarom that victory over the enemy will not mean his physical liquidation.
This is very typical of the device has been created by scientists from the Land of the Rising Sun, translated into Russian language it can be called a silencer speech. If you move the device to the side of this constantly speaking person and run it, then after a couple minutes, he begins to confuse the words in his speech and soon silenced. This device is not a perfect tool, but maybe with proper development will be able to be used in times of natural or unauthorized rallies to end the speech of someone more active speakers. It should be noted that this unit has been able to obtain «Ig Nobel Prize» in 2012. This prize is awarded once a year in the U.S. for more obscure achievements in science.
The Incapacitating Flashligh
Device with this title was created by the Californian company Intelligent Optical Systems. Most of all he remembers the everyday «flashlight», with the help of massive LEDs which generated a series of light pulses of different colors and very painful for the duration of the human eye. As a result, the impact of such «lantern» target alive, staying in good health, temporarily loses orientation in space.
Is a non-lethal laser weapon acts made the U.S. Defense Department. It is used for temporary blindness and disorientation opponent. Layout for the rifle was PHASR English laser gun Dazzler, which was used to blind Argentine pilots rather short during the Falklands war. Designed Yankees PHASR low intensity laser is because its blinding effect is only temporary nature. With all this, if necessary, the wavelength can be changed.
In 1995, a laser cannon which would cause damage to your eyes, it was forbidden to the UN Convention, which was called the «Protocol on blinding laser weapons.» Following the adoption of this protocol Pentagon turned part of their own development, but managed to defend PHASR rifle. This is due to a small time of its impact, and that the Protocol does not prohibit the introduction of lasers that do not cause permanent visual impairment. According to the views of U.S. Department of Defense, this can be an indispensable weapon in those situations when you need to temporarily blind the enemy.
Active Denial System — Active Denial System
Already mentioned above, also popular as a «ray of pain.» Is only one of the types of tools that are being developed within the American applets «Weapons controlled effects.» Cannon is a unit that emits electrical oscillations in the millimeter-wave spectrum with high frequency — 94 GHz, which has on people short shock effect. The principle of this type act nonlethal guns consists in the fact that when the beam enters the device on the person 83% of its energy is absorbed by the upper layer of irradiated skin.
Artillery shell XM1063
This shell is a chemical weapon, action is based on a possible defeat of the enemy strong stench. An artillery shell explodes in the air above the target, spraying it over the chemical elements that, acting on the amygdala in the human brain, can cause not only nasty to feelings of intolerance, and the invincible horror. While the impact of such shells opponent just take flight. An artillery shell explodes in the air above the target.
This is pretty funny title was of chemical weapon, the effect of which was based on massive aphrodisiacs. Being dropped on enemy troops, these bombs were to arouse strong sex appeal fighter excitement stimulating homosexual behavior. In late 2004, the publication of this disk imaging caused a scandal in connection with a possible violation of international conventions America Non-Proliferation of Chemical Weapons. Besides it was the reason for the disturbance gay organizations that offended the assumption that homosexual soldiers have the least potential combat capability. In response to the accusations in the Pentagon said that the existing ideas to create this weapon did not receive future development.
Made in Israel lethal weapon capable generirrovat strong sound waves and created to disperse crowds of demonstrators and rioters. Noteworthy is the fact that it was created originally for scaring away birds and other pests of grain crops and was created in the walls of the 1st of agro-industrial companies.
Pepper stun grenade act was done by Indian scientists and stuffed with chili, can be used for different purposes. For example, to prevent riots, the fight against terrorism and for the production of new means of self-defense for women. Pepper grenade was created on the basis of the Naga pepper cultivars yolokiya. This kind of peppers in several hundred times sharper than other chilis and grows in Assam, in north-east India. For its sharpness this type of pepper was recorded in the book of Guinness World Records.
Sticky foam combat
When injected into the active enemy shell allocates unlimited amount of foam chemical reagent which is very rapidly increasing in volume and dries on the victim, depriving it of the ability to move. Motion constrained by enemy fighters hardened foam, it is practically immobilized. This development has been used by South American Marines in a number of special operations in Somalia.
Sticky foam combat
Massive non-lethal stun gun. From everyday stun excels defeats the purpose of a substantial distance — 4.5-10 meters. Done in the U.S., decided to adopt the local police, which in most cases uses the model M26 and X26. Among other things Taser Shotgun licensed for use by persons and civilians on the ground 43 states.
