Variable Kinetic System (VKS) Non-Lethal Launcher System
The Variable Kinetic System (VKS) is a compressed-air powered launcher designed to fire non-lethal projectiles which has the unique capability of allowing the user to adjust the speed of the launcher from 285 fps up to 425 fps, producing between 12 - 28 joules of kinetic force. The system's VXR-shaped projectiles include training/blunt impact rounds, marking rounds, glass breakers, oleoresin capsicum/PAVA powder and CS powder rounds.
The VKS is designed to deny access into/out of an area to individuals, to move individuals through an area, and suppress individuals. The system has the ability to support multiple missions including:
* Force protection
* Detainee operations
* Crowd control
* Defensive and offensive operations
* Break auto and building glass for tactical access
Accessories available include 10- and 15-round magazines, a 100-round drum magazine, and a maintenance kit allowing full cleaning and maintenance. The system is available in black, orange, yellow and green.
