Israeli firm General Robotics has unveiled its Less-Lethal Weapon (LLW) module for its DOGO robot.

The LLW has a variety of non-lethal capabilities to assist special forces and police using the 22-pound DOGO. These include a remote-controlled pepper spray with a range of 18 feet, and a bright light to daze targets.

“With the DOGO LLW module, the system enables the special forces full discretion of the lethality level that is to be used under the circumstances, as activating an accurate lethal or less lethal weapon can be done by a push of a button,“said a General Robotics news release.
