Abstract:

A DIVERSION DEVICE/INCAPACITANT BASED ON A CHEMICAL PUMP SOLID STATE LASER TO FLASH-BLIND AN OPPONENT WITHOUT INJURING NEARBY INNOCENT PERSONNEL WILL BE STUDIED IN THIS PROGRAM. THE RECENT DATA COLLECTED AT SCHWARTZ ELECTRO-OPTICS (SEO) INDICATES THE FEASIBILITY OF A CHEMICAL PUMPED SOLID STATE LASER. THE DEVICE EMITS HIGH POWER PHOTON BULLETS THAT WOULD BE IDEAL EQUIPMENT TO TEMPORARILY STUN THE OPPONENT. SEO PROPOSES A PHASE I STUDY PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A LOW COST/LOW MASS, HIGH ENERGY, PULSED LASER FOR THE SPECIAL OPERATIONS APPLICATIONS. THE DEVICE WILL PROVIDE A LASER BEAM DIVERGENCE CONTROL SO THAT AN INDIVIDUAL IN A GROUP OR THE ENTIRE GROUP OF OPPONENTS CAN BE STUNNED WITH A SINGLE SHOT.
