AIR TASER® Weapon

The Power To Protect

15 FEET OF TAKE DOWN POWER

The most effective less-lethal system available

On patrol, you need simple systems you can rely on to protect yourself. Most confrontations do not justify the use of lethal force, but you should not have to expose yourself to risk of injury from physical confrontation with a violent combatant. Now, there’s a powerful, reliable, compact solution: The AIR TASER® Weapon ®. In police studies, TASER® Weapon ® technology has shown to have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a .38 Special handgun.1 TASER® Weapon technology is considered the method of choice for dealing with PCP suspects, violent mental patients, and dangerous cell extractions. Now, you can carry this technology on your belt in a package the size of a cell phone, including laser sight. AIR TASER® Weapon is there when you need it most.

REDUCE INJURIES

Decrease officer and suspect injuries (and reduce your department's legal bills)

When the situation calls for less-lethal force, you need an effective and safe device to drop the perpatrator without causing injuries. Over 20 years of medical studies have shown TASER® Weapon technology leaves no long term injury. After several minutes, a suspect stunned with an AIR TASER® Weapon recovers without any known long term effects.2 In fact, the marks from an AIR TASER® Weapon hit can barely be seen by the naked eye -- they look like two tiny bee-stings. More importantly, the TASER® Weapon -WaveTM electron pulse has been tested in direct application to cardiac tissue and does not effect the heart nor a pacemaker. For maximum effect with minimum risk, give your officers the power to protect themselves and the technology to safely serve the community.

IMPROVE OFFICER SAFETY

Your officers deserve a safer job

Field statistics show the use of TASER® Weapon technology drastically improves officer safety. As charted above, when officers used a baton to subdue a perpetrator, the officer was injured in 16% of the cases studied. When officers used a TASER® Weapon , officer injuries were completely eliminated.

 

TECHNOLOGY FOR THE NEXT MILLENNIUM

The less-lethal AIR TASER® Weapon is a powerful hand-held remote stun system. The AIR TASER® Weapon uses a replaceable Air Cartridge module (1) that fires out two probes (2) up to 15 feet. These probes are connected to the AIR TASER® Weapon power handle by high-voltage insulated TASER® Weapon Wire (3). When the probes make contact with the target, 50,000-Volt TASER® Weapon -WaveTM impulses transmit along the TASER® Weapon Wire and into the perpetrator. These TASER® Weapon -Waves (4) can penetrate through two cumulative inches of clothing, including leather.

SIMPLICITY FOR TODAY’S CHALLENGES

Easy to use, minimum training required

While the AIR TASER® Weapon uses extremely advanced technology, it is simple to use: Simply pull back the safety slide (5) and press the trigger (6). The AIR TASER® Weapon ’s microprocessor (7) is programmed to administer a 30-second TASER® Weapon -Wave discharge -- so you don’t have to worry about how long to hold down the button. Or, turn the unit on or off at your discretion. Because the AIR TASER® Weapon transmits pulses into the nervous system, a hit anywhere on the body can be effective (see chart below). Thus, it is much easier to use than sprays or firearms which require a hit to a specific zone of the body. An optional laser sight (8) provides "day light" power laser illumination for pinpoint accuracy (and stronger deterrence). Yet, with all this technology, the AIR TASER® Weapon requires no maintenance other than replacement of its 9-Volt alkaline battery when the battery indicator [5] shows the battery is low.

The TASER® Weapon is highly effective because the electrical signal penetrates the nervous system regardless of the placement of the probes.  The entire human body is covered by the neural net, which the AIR TASER® Weapon uses to knock out the target.  Since the T-Waves can penetrate approximately two cumulative inches of clothing, the probes do not have to penetrate the flesh or cause bodily harm to be effective.

For a bullet to be instantly effective, it must hit a vital organ such as the heart or brain.  Similarly, chemical sprays or pepper sprays must hit an assailant in the face -- no easy task in fast moving confrontations.  And, in a windy environment, sprays can be blown back onto the user.  The AIR TASER® Weapon can be used more effectively and with less training than other self-defense technologies.

NO CLEANUP

No chemicals to contaminate you or your patrol car

The AIR TASER® Weapon offers selective targeting capability without causing cross contamination of other officers and innocent bystanders. In closed quarters, the AIR TASER® Weapon gives you a less-lethal option which does not impair officers and allows for tactical operations without hindrance from chemical contamination. No other system can match the AIR TASER® Weapon ’s effectiveness and ease of use, particularly for use indoors (such as cell extractions) where chemicals can contaminate officers as well as suspects and inmates, or for use in security applications around expensive equipment (such as banks, casinos, or areas with electronics.)
