Non-Lethal Wireless Electro-Muscular
Disruption Technology (W-EMDT) Ammunition
The patent-pending LEKTROX family of Wireless
Electric Bullets is currently at the final stages of development before
production. Each LEKTROX munition is fitted with built-in Wireless
Electro-Muscular Disruption Technology (W-EMDT) that incapacitates the
target instantly without causing serious injury or lethality. LEKTROX is
promissing to provide supperior range and will be compatible with
standard firearms, offering security and military forces non-lethal
options currently unavailable with specialized weapons. R&D is being
conducted in Israel by Elad Engineering Ltd. The developments was
supported wireless and medical experts from Israel.
has been proved effective up to a range of 60 yards. The company expects
that the LEKTROX 37/38mm and 40mm Wireless Electric Bullets will be
ready in early 2007, with a 12-guage version available later in the
year. LEXTOR is evolved from patented systems developed by Israeli-based
Elad Engineering, and is supported by scientific and medical know-how.
When contact occurs, LEKTROX transfers kinetic energy to release its
Multiple Mini-Harpoon mechanism and activate its built-in electrical
system. These mini-harpoons fix the bullet irremovably to the target
while it releases a W-EMDT charge that imitates the body's own
electro-neural impulses. Sending control signals to the muscles, a high
voltage low current pulse safely overrides the target's nervous system
inducing a harmless muscle spasm that causes them to fall helplessly to
the ground. To deliver enhanced target protection, the LEKTROX electric
output has been designed in line with stringent medical equipment
standards that protect patients from permanent injury, and operates at
lower than critical cardio-fibrillation levels. Enabling full recovery
with no clinical after effects, LEKTROX helps decreases liability for
wrongful injury or death. Additional mechanisms and the use of
collapsible materials further reduce the projectile's kinetic energy.
SDI's new ammunition incorporates a number of patent-pending W-EMDT and
advanced engineering solutions, employed to ensure effectiveness and
safety of the new ammunition against potential targets. According to
SDI, LEKTROX ammunition remains safe during all stages of storage,
transportation, handling and loading, by keeping it locked in safe mode
until it is activated by contact with the target.
The LEKTROX ammunition is currently undergoing evaluation with military and law enforcement forces in the U.S. and elsewhere, anticipating a procurement decision in 2010.
