Armed forces use of non-lethal weapons

Research And Markets : 23 January, 2014  (New Product)
Market research report details forecasts for the next four years in the use of non-lethal weapons by law enforcement and armed forces
Armed forces use of non-lethal weapons

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the Non-Lethal Weapons Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

Armed forces are increasingly called upon and nation building missions and law enforcement officers are forced to deal with new kinds of threats. It is imperative that they are well equipped to handle the various future security scenarios. Armed forces increasingly operate in urban terrain where they fight enemies who are diffused among civilian population and law enforcement officers often have to deal with uncontrollable mob and transnational threats.

Non-lethal weapons are broadly classified into counter-personnel and counter-material capabilities which are used for controlling crowds and for stopping vehicles respectively. They provide a flexible alternative to respond to the diverse challenge that a law enforcement officer or a war fighter faces. Some of the missions where they prove to be imperative are patrols, checkpoints, crowd control, convoys, and vessel stopping. The use of non-lethal capability could substantially increase the effectiveness of the armed forces to handle escalating civilian upheaval and increase the engagement options of the law enforcement officer.

Apart from the existing non-lethal weapons technology, a number of new capabilities are being developed mainly by the U.S. Few of the developmental projects are non-tethered munition, sensor fused non-lethal munitions, distributed sound and light array, vehicle & vessel stopping devices, and multi-frequency radio-frequency vehicle stopper. Since there seems to be a rapid interest in these weapons across the globe, many countries lack clarity in terms of requirement and training, and the doctrine needed for the armed services to induct such non-lethal capability, which is expected to act as a restraint to the market.

The report can be purchased directly from Research and Markets here: "2013 Report on the Non-Lethal Weapons Market - Forecasts to 2018"
