Acoustic Hailing Devices (AHD) project intelligible speech out to extended ranges. A number of devices created by various manufacturers are in use throughout the Department of Defense. In addition to long range projection of speech for warning or instructional purposes, the devices are also capable of transmitting loud tones that can distract or deter personnel from approaching U.S. positions or vessels.
The Non-Lethal Indirect Fire Munition is an 81mm mortar round. Upon arrival over a target area, the case opens and discharges 14 sub-munitions. Those sub-munitions cover an area causing a non-lethal “flash-bang” effect to suppress personnel targets on the ground without causing permanent injury. Parachutes attached to the two sections of mortar casing enable the body of the munition to fall to earth slowly, to avoid inadvertent injury to personnel below.
Picatinny Arsenal engineer, Michael Markowitch, holding a demonstration model of the Indirect Fire Munition (IDFM) Non-Lethal Cargo Carrier Mortar for which he and engineers Francesco Rizzi, Bryan Drake, Jason Surmanek, Samuel Perez, Raymond Trohanowsky, Wooje Na, and Piotr Czerechowski were granted US Patent No 9528802 B1.
Solid State Active Denial Technology mounted on gimbal with downsized power supply. Demonstrates that the technology can be manufactured in a size that has operational utility.
LROI delivers a warning effect
at distances of 3000 meters and
increases irradiance at ranges
up to 2000 meters to provide
visual suppression of the target.
The U.S. Navy is
transitioning its
Long-Range Ocular
Interrupter, known as LROI, to
a rapid deployment capability
program for initial fielding.
A demonstration using the Active Denial
System 2, embarked aboard an Army
Landing Craft Utility vessel, was conducted
to demonstrate the technology’s benefits in a
maritime environment.

Cpl. Kyle Carpenter gets an inside look at the state-of-the-art technologies on display at the Museum of Flight during Marine Week Seattle. The Medal of Honor recipient talks to Capt Stephenson John about the Active Denial System (ADS). The ADS is an advanced, long-range, non-lethal, directed energy, counter-personnel capability that assists in minimizing civilian casualties and collateral damage.
The improved flash-bang grenade
uses very small quantities of thermobarric materials
to provide a greatly enhanced flash intensity and duration
to aid users in multiple mission sets.
The Improved Flash-Bang Grenade
has a reduced smoke output, enabling better
situational awareness in dynamic environments.
