Non-Lethal Weapons (NLW), an Intermediate Force option between No Force (presence/deterrence) and Lethal Force, have made significant operational contributions in response to urgent requirements. SAS activities have analysed these contributions, associated requirements and concepts, and challenges hindering NLW development, acquisition, and employment. The Stakeholder Event will promote solutions to ensure needed capabilities are available to meet the demand of future operations.
Engage key decision makers and influencers in a Stakeholder Event that conveys the analytical findings of previous SAS activities and capabilities of emerging Intermediate Force/NLW technologies.
Scientific topics are diverse as there are many relevant technologies (kinetic energy, chemical based, acoustic, and directed energy spanning millimeter wave, high power radio frequency/microwave, optical, and laser) with various Counter Personnel and Counter Materiel applications, including recently demonstrated technologies to counter small unmanned aircraft systems (C-sUAS).
