KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M., Nov. 1, 2005 – A laser technology being developed by Air Force Research Laboratory employees at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., will be the first man-portable, non-lethal deterrrent weapon intended for protecting troops and controlling hostile crowds...Can see Neil Sheehan ordering a couple of dozen!
The weapon, developed by the laboratory's Directed Energy Directorate, employs a two-wavelength laser system and is the first of its kind as a hand-held, single-operator system for troop and perimeter defense.
The laser light used in the weapon temporarily impairs aggressors by illuminating or "dazzling" individuals, removing their ability to see the laser source.
Special Operations Forces Demolition Kit
The SOFDK contains a variety of inert items that, when field loaded, provide Special Operations Forces with the capability to tailor charges to the target by using SDK components and C4 or other moldable explosives. The kit provides several methods of attaching charges/munitions to targets. The overall intent is to allow the operator to construct the smallest, lightest charge feasible with the greatest standoff distance attainable and maximum precision. I have a question....how can this type of stuff be put up on EASILY ACCESSIBLE PUBLIC WEB SITES, but we cannot see the DBT? Could it be the NRC does not want Host Communities to know just how PATHETIC Reactor Site Security is?
Rapid Wall Breaching Kit (RWBK)
RBWK addresses an immediate need to give Soldiers wall breaching capability in urban and complex terrain. It supports performance demolition missions across the full range of operations. The RWBK is man-portable, rapidly deployable and creates a man-size hole to gain forced entry into buildings. Each kit will contain explosive, ignition material, attachment devices and a rebar cutter. Hey Richard Barkley, how much of a chance does a CINDER BLOCK SPENT FUEL POOL HAVE AGAINST A RBWK? Is such a kit included in the DBT?
