The Future of Non-lethal Solutions

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

The union of weapons research and development and engineering is one as old as the role of the engineer itself. As many engineering career paths converge with national and domestic security applications, it is important that engineers consider the role of non-lethal solutions to meet these challenges. In this research, existing and emerging non-lethal solutions around the world are juxtaposed with their lethal counterparts to assess the evolving demand for less lethal solutions in modern peace and security applications.
