Latest electro-pneumatic with automated velocity control and laser range finder. Air burst system optional. FCU has electronic pressure sensor, firing, round charging and programming based on LRF data.

Image of airburst was a round fired at 400fps 150ft from target.

Are you making the rounds as well or are they off the shelf units? Awesome work!

Thank you.

We are making the rounds as well. They are lightweight rigid foam with a hollow nose for payload. We manufacture a fuze that uses an ultra-capacitor in lieu of a battery that gets charged in .150mS after closing the breech. The FCU identifies the type of round and programs accordingly from LRF and pressure sensor data.

Very impressive technology, what kind of application do you have in mind for these?

Non-contact OC or taggent dispersal, flash bang, anti-drone net rounds, and drag chute deployment for reducing impact for less-lethal rounds to maintain faster initial velocity and flatter trajectories. Nothing lethal, that would require more safeguards. This is designed as a low cost air-burst technology for non and less lethal applications. The on board cpu can also save telemetry data for diagnosing flight characteristics. We also have a tiny LED on back of round that acts like a tracer.

You mention non-lethal are these gentle enough for say mil-sim or surprise gender-reveal parties

You can fire them at as low a pressure as you want with smooth bore. The rifled rounds need a little push to cut the grooves though. We want to do some paintball and airsoft rounds as well but need to get the base products off the ground first. Going to revisit the revolver in a 5 round version and a few other multi-shot versions by next year.
