Crowd Management Responder (CMR)
is a less lethal weapon that is designed for crowd control by
authorised law enforcement services. The device emits high frequency millimetre
waves that generate a burning sensation on the outer skin, without causing any
damage. By using a person’s natural instincts for self preservation, CMR
minimises the level of aggression and injury that might result from use of
other law enforcement tools.
The CMR device is a pulse weapon that requires 3 seconds for it to reach maximum effect on its subject. The waves travels through all clothing, excluding solid metal and stone with a working distance of 5-10 metres. With two button activation and in-built safety measures, CMR is a less lethal weapon that can assist the law enforcement operations.
As a portable device, CMR has the potential to assist everyday law enforcement situations, and larger crowd control scenarios.
