Outcry from social networks and new nedia forces governments to invest billions in less lethal weapons
Washington D.C. (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
According to the Non-Lethal Weapons Industry, Technologies & Global Market – 2014-2020 report, following lessons learned in Ukraine, Syria, Egypt, Israel, China and Afghanistan, governments worldwide have undoubtedly understood the urgent need for non-lethal weapons. Asymmetric warfare, street riots, insurgency and mass demonstrations over the last decade have revealed the loopholes in the security dogma of the 21st century.
There is a growing demand from combatant commanders, law enforcement officers and political establishment for less lethal weapons capabilities. This demand is driven by the need to help them win the hearts and minds of the non-combatant population and prevent world outcry and media attention due to non-combatant casualties. As a result, many governments have entered into non-lethal weapons R&D and procurement dedicated to the full spectrum of public safety, law enforcement, crowd control and asymmetric warfare. In view of these changes in the field, technological advances have facilitated the development of new types of non-lethal weapons.
The use of non-lethal weapons (NLW) provides a set of moderate options in cases of violent conflicts between the uses of diplomacy and psychological means and the use of lethal force. NLW provides a valuable alternative for law enforcement and military commanders to use less-lethal means between the other options of “Shout and Shoot”. Non-lethal weapons provide flexible options to avert violent scenarios by creating time and space, controls level of violence and fills the gap in the options between diplomatic and lethal force.
