Non-lethal weapons are specially designed and employed to incapacitate an individual or vehicle while reducing injury to the personnel and avoiding damage to the property and surrounding. Non-lethal weapons thus offer a wide range of capabilities for the conduct of war and in the support of homeland defense. The peacekeeping operations of 1990s had previously triggered the interest in spending on non-lethal weapons. The protest triggered by economic crisis, political dissentient and unrest across the nations are the major drivers for non-lethal weapons.
