Annotation: THE ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRICAL LESS-LETHAL WEAPONS ARE DISCUSSED, ALONG WITH THE GENERAL LESS-LETHAL WEAPON EVALUATION MODEL.
Abstract: THE BASIC ELECTRICAL PARAMETERS OF VOLTAGE, CURRENT, POWER AND FREQUENCY ARE DISCUSSED. GENERAL DATA IS DEVELOPED RELATIVE TO THE PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSES. A PARAMETER TERMED AS NO-LET-GO CURRENT IS CONSIDERED AND DATA VALUES ARE PRESENTED TO PROVIDE LIMITS FOR BOTH DESIRABLE AND UNDESIRABLE USAGE EFFECTS. THESE EFFECTS ARE DISCUSSED IN SOME DETAIL AND RELATED TO APPLICATION FOR A 50 KILOGRAM MAN. INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR UTILIZATION WITH THE GENERAL LESS-LETHAL WEAPONS EVALUATION MODEL IS ASSEMBLED WHERE FEASIBLE. FINALLY, TWO EXISTING ELECTRICAL LESS-LETHAL WEAPONS ARE BRIEFLY DISCUSSED AND THEIR PRIME CHARACTERISTICS NOTED. DATA ARE PRESENTED IN GRAPHS AND TABLES. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
