Is Less-Lethal Effective?

Less-lethal defence is the use of groundbreaking, effective less-lethal solutions which preserve life, instead of using lethal force in conflict or defence situations. Many law enforcement agencies worldwide are moving towards the use of less-lethal systems, as the global call to engage in conflicts in a humane yet effective way grows. Non-lethal systems also complement lethal systems, as they can often be used to neutralize situations, thus negating the use for lethal force.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide ordinary individuals and security forces worldwide with an effective means of neutralizing conflict situations while preserving life. Our company is committed to the development of new products and the improvement of existing products. We believe in directing resources to the most valuable investment – research and development – ensuring that we exceed expectations for effectiveness, quality, and design.
