A revolutionary wireless electroshock weapon is in the process of issue by the US Patent Office. The device is defined as a non-lethal weapon typically utilized by law enforcement personnel to control noncompliant and aggressive subjects. As designed, the electroshock weapon would fire a wireless direct contact projectile from a launcher to administer the shock to the subject.
The launcher is controlled by radio frequency. In addition to reducing the projectile velocity at launch and allowing the officer to control the shock wirelessly through radio frequency, the wirelessly controlled electronic weapon is designed to be compact, easy to carry, and provide improved accuracy.
Digital Ally, which develops, manufactures and markets video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, plans to enter the nonlethal weapon market.
“With the innovation embodied in the new ‘259 Patent, we believe that we have addressed the limitations in current CEWs with our new technology and expect that it will become the platform for the next generation of CEWs that police have been long awaiting,” said Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally.
