ShockRounds - A Breakthrough Law Enforcement Weapon That Also
Addresses Homeland Security and Terrorism
MDM Group, Inc. (OTC: MDDM) advises now that the Company has
progressed to its ShockRounds project development stage being
ready for commencement, it is seeking expressions of interest from
European and other global industry parties that have an interest in
future ShockRounds representation, licensing and/or
manufacturing. Following recent and significant inquiries and
positive support, the Company is now looking to expand
ShockRounds awareness and interest globally through the
establishment of strategic relationships during the development
stage. The initial non-lethal and less-than-lethal ShockRounds
prototype "electric" bullets have been commissioned and the company
expects to have the first of these specialized piezoelectric bullets
ready for demonstration during the course of Q4, 2004.
ShockRounds is a potential breakthrough in non-lethal and
less-than-lethal "electric" ballistic products for law enforcement,
military, anti-terrorism and Homeland Security initiatives due to
their versatility, effectiveness and multiple applications. When
fired, a ShockRounds specialized bullet generates an extremely
high voltage charge that is released upon impact, causing immediate
target incapacitation. See: www.shockrounds.com
In a manner similar to stun guns and "Taser" technology, a
ShockRounds bullet discharges an electrical shock upon impact and
disrupts the nervous system. Unlike stun guns and Tasers however, the
kinetically generated charge is delivered via a modified metal or
rubber bullet fired from existing standard issued weapons without the
use of capacitors or batteries. ShockRounds have the potential to
immediately incapacitate the target via electric shock and, even
though the disruptive effects are only temporary as with stun guns
and Tasers, experts confirm the less-than-lethal results have great
potential to positively affect the outcome of an engagement.
ShockRounds are positioned as more versatile with more
applications than other non-lethal and less-than-lethal products
available today. For example, the ShockRounds rubber bullets can
incapacitate a target at up to 100 meters, whereas traditional rubber
bullets are largely ineffective at their maximum range of about 40
meters. Further, ShockRounds rubber bullets are fired from
existing standard weapons and are not restricted to close range
usage, as is the case with stun guns and products such as the "Taser"
gun, which is limited to about 6.5 metres and requires a direct wire
to the target.
ShockRounds bullets use the "piezoelectric effect" to generate
a high voltage charge in the order of 50'000 volts, with some 175
joules of usable charge. (As a point of comparison, electric fences
typically operate at approximately 10 - 25 joules per second.) The
global piezo industry has evolved substantially since its discovery
decades ago and the more recent introduction of new piezo materials
and innovations have allowed ShockRounds to produce very high
levels of voltage capable of incapacitating a target upon impact.
ShockRounds "electrified" standard bullets and rubber bullets
have the potential to:
-- Make law enforcement safer and more certain
-- Save lives and reduce collateral damage
-- Reduce injuries and fatalities
-- Enable far better control and effective security enablement in
aircraft, public places, arenas etc.
-- Contribute to effective anti-terrorism and border control
-- Reduce legal liability
Given the global emphasis on law enforcement, security and
terrorism prevention, the need for new and more effective non-lethal
and less than lethal weapons could not be more acute. ShockRounds
technology is applicable to a wide range of markets and security
needs, introducing far more application and versatility to this
