New weapon: The Taser XREP.
The TASER® XREP™ is a self-contained, wireless electronic control device (ECD), that deploys from a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun. It delivers a similar Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) bio-effect as our handheld TASER® X26™ ECD, but can be delivered to a maximum effective range of 100 feet (30.48 meters), combining blunt impact force. The battery supply is fully integrated into the chassis and provides the power to drive the XREP projectile engine.
The TASER eXtended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) is the most technologically advanced projectile ever deployed from a 12-gauge shotgun. In both the XREP series, the nose assembly of the projectile contains four forward facing barbed electrodes. On impact, the forward facing barbed electrodes attach to the body of the target. The energy from the impact breaks a series of fracture pins that release the main chassis of the XREP projectile which remains connected to the nose by a nonconductive tether. The XREP projectile autonomously generates NMI for 20 continuous seconds. As the chassis falls away, six Cholla electrodes automatically deploy to deliver the NMI effect over a greater body mass.
The XREP has hinged fins that extend upon release from the barrel providing stabilization during flight. The XREP universal shell casing has a recessed ring, optimally designed for use in any standard 12-gauge pump-action shotgun.
The key technology to disable even the most aggressive subjects, NMI (neuro muscular incapacitation) temporarily overrides the command and control systems of the body to impair muscular control.
The proprietary electronics package generates the highly refined NMI waveform that incapacitates the subject. Includes the electronic circuitry and on-board battery system.
