ABSTRACT
The recent rise of innovative and sophisticated nonlethal weapons, however, is giving military forces new options. Some of the newest systems in development or soon to be deployed include an airborne Active Denial System, a focused-energy weapon that emits a heat ray, the Mobility Denial System, which sprays a slippery gel and the pulsed energy projectile, a directed-energy weapon that flash-heats its target. U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has stated that in many instances forces are allowed to shoot to kill, but they are not allowed to use a nonlethal riot-control agent.
