9:00 AM WORKSHOP A: NON-LETHAL DIRECTED ENERGY SYSTEMS IN MILITARY AND CIVILIAN SETTINGS

Non-Lethal Directed Energy Systems (NLDES) have long been the subject of research and testing. A limited range of systems has been deployed in real world operations, both in a military-civilian and in a law enforcement context. Whilst their value has been demonstrated in numerous operational settings, NLDES are a topic of much debate, given their wide-ranging applicability on the one hand and legal, moral and safety concerns on the other.
 
Led by a dedicated member of the European Non-Lethal Weapon community, this workshop will explore the outlook of NLDES, including new concepts that potentially will be fielded in the near future.
 
By attending this workshop, you will:
•       Understand the current and emerging capabilities and requirements of Non-Lethal Weapons, with a focus on NLDES
•       Gain insight into DEW that are being used in the field, the lessons learned, and how current and future projects and programmes may exploit operational experiences
•       Gain insight into the future development of NLW’s, and the issues to be overcome in promoting their acceptance, technically, operationally as well as morally
•       Gain insight into scenarios both from the military-civilian and the homeland security domains that call for the application of NLDES.
