SMARTROUNDS - NON-LETHAL SMART WEAPON SYSTEM

ERIE, CO - SmartRounds Technology, LLC “SRT” of Erie, Colorado announced today their newest addition to their product line, their LifeSaver gas powered smart launcher. The LifeSaver launcher is a patent-pending, micro-controlled launcher that will fire non-lethal SmartRounds. The launcher is gas powered, so no gunpowder is involved, making it safer, quieter to operate, and with a low recoil. It has a number of innovative smart features such as; microprocessor control, rechargeable battery pack, electronic trigger and much more that sets it apart from any non-lethal, hand held weapon on the market. It is small enough to be carried as a concealed weapon.

“We should arm our law enforcement officers with our non-lethal weapons and those weapons should be the first the officer uses when necessary. This action would go a long way to improving relations between police and the local community. In addition all fifty States need to pass laws that allow Americans to own non-lethal weapons such as our LifeSaver launcher and smart rounds. It is time for private citizens to have a choice other than firing lethal rounds for self-defense.” states Nick Verini - CEO SmartRounds Technology.

SmartRoundssmart bullets are a new class of smart projectiles that will give Military, Law Enforcement, Corrections, Security firms, and private citizens a choice. These smart projectiles are safe and effective and use MEMS micro-electro-mechanical technology and a custom CMOS image sensor to activate the projectiles before they reach the target. The microprocessor along with the CMOS image sensor determines that the smart bullet is close to the target and activates the round millisecs before it hits the target utilizing our patent-pending air burst technology.

A computer animation showing two of our non-lethal smart rounds in action is available now on YouTube. A live demonstration video will be available on YouTube soon.

Visit us at www.smartrounds.com for further details.

All of our SmartRounds Technology products will be produced in the USA.

SMARTROUNDS - WORLD’S FIRST NON-LETHAL SMART BULLETS

BRIGHTON, CO - SmartRounds Technology, LLC “SRT” of Brighton, Colorado announced today their new 18mm non-impact, non-lethal smart bullets. These micro-controlled patent pending smart bullets will initially be available in two versions. A ShockRound and a PepperRound. Each one is equipped with two solid state micro-sensors that turn ON the round when fired, and activate the round millisecs before impact. These projectiles are designed to be fired from a standard 12 gauge shotgun at 450 feet per second and have a range of 100 yards. Both are lightweight, carbon fiber projectiles that produce a low-recoil which allows them to be fired from various 12 gauge shotgun formats. The ShockRound produces a flash-bang and nitrogen gas shock wave that disables the assailant. The PepperRound produces a flash-bang and a capsaicin cloud that causes a burning sensation to the eyes and throat rendering the assailant unable to continue.

The MEMS accelerometer sensor and the CMOS image sensor along with the micro-controller give either round the “smarts” to produce a powerful non-impact and non-lethal effect. A very fast acting proprietary chemical produces the hyperbaric nitrogen gas shock wave millisecs before impact. Unlike less-lethal weapons that rely on hitting the target to deliver kinetic energy and considerable pain to disable the assailant, these projectiles do not make contact, which makes these bullets truly non-lethal.

Our smart bullets will forever change the landscape for the use of non-lethal weapons by military forces, law enforcement and others worldwide. When it is necessary to use SmartRounds™ the community and law enforcement will have peace of mind that there will likely not be fatal consequences.” Nick Verini - CEO SmartRounds Technology.

Because these smart bullets are fired from a standard 12 gauge shotgun someone adequately trained in the use of these weapons will need minimal training to become proficient in the operation and use of these rounds. Both SmartRounds™ will be produced in the USA.

A video is available that shows both smart rounds in action in three different scenarios; military, law enforcement and homeowner. To view the video visit our web site www.smartrounds.com.

SMARTROUNDS - NON-LETHAL SMART WEAPONS

BRIGHTON, CO - SmartRounds Technology, LLC “SRT” of Brighton, Colorado announced today their new SmartRoundssmart bullets. “We have been working the past three years on our non-lethal arms and have finally arrived at several effective rounds along with a reliable delivery system. The 18 mm, .680 caliber, d-shaped, rifled rounds are fired from our gas-powered launchers at upwards of 450 feet per second and have an effective range of 100 yards.” states SRT president Nick Verini.

The patent-pending SmartRoundsare non-lethal, intelligent projectiles designed to offer an alternative to firearms, but with sufficient stopping power to disarm an assailant. They will be available in a number of non-lethal versions including MMS based rounds. The active MMS (micro- mechanical system) controlled version senses when the round is fired and when it hits its target. It then activates the payload in a micro-second, reducing the chances of penetration.

One special SRT projectile called ShockRounds contains a compressed gas and activates a high-powered “shock wave” that expands rapidly upon impact and attacks three of the five human senses, disabling the assailant. These projectiles are fired from our SRT-4 rifle launchers, which are modeled after the Colt Industries M4 carbine. Our SRT-9 launcher is modeled after a popular, semi-automatic handgun, ideal for close quarters combat.

“These launchers are rugged, ergonomically designed, and powered by compressed gas. We also offer our SRT training rounds for military, law enforcement, security firms and private citizens for force-on-force training, combat training, and firearm safety. These rounds are available immediately and are also fired from our line of SRT launchers. Training sessions in the proper use of these launchers and smart bullets will be available soon.” adds Mr. Verini.

While the non-lethal versions of SmartRoundsdo not have the deadly stopping power of high velocity bullets fired from a firearm, such deadly force is generally not necessary to deter many typical crimes. Moreover, there are many situations where deadly force is either, not needed or wanted. SRT strongly recommends that all adult citizens arm themselves with at least one of these pneumatic, non-lethal weapons for self-defense.

A decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, where it can be nearly impossible for troops to distinguish between enemy combatants and the local population, has highlighted calls for more non-lethal weapons. Troops could use these tools to temporarily incapacitate adversaries without harming nearby civilians. These weapons will become even more important to a military that has taken on roles away from battlefields, providing humanitarian assistance or support to civilian agencies, as well as conducting emergency evacuations, crowd control and other peacekeeping missions.

SRT anticipates a strong global demand by the military, law enforcement, border security and private citizens for SRT launchers and the non-lethal SmartRounds™.

NON-LETHAL SMART BULLETS

LAFAYETTE, CO - SmartRounds Technology, LLC “SRT” of Lafayette, Colorado announced today their new patent-pending SmartRoundsmicroprocessor controlled, non-lethal projectiles. “We have been working the past three years on our less-lethal and non-lethal arms for the military, law enforcement and private security firms. We will also be introducing SmartRounds™, along with an air pistol, for private citizens in early 2012. We believe that all citizens should be armed with non-lethal weapons for self-defense, if they choose to do so. This product will allow individuals to arm themselves with something other than deadly force to protect themselves from persons who wish to do them harm." states SRT president Nick Verini.

SmartRounds is an intelligent projectile designed to offer an alternative to lethal, small caliber weapons but with sufficient stopping power to disarm an assailant. The "brain" or microprocessor of the projectile senses when the round is fired and when it hits its target. It activates the smart bullet attacking at least two of the five senses, stopping the assailant in his tracks. An internal electrical generator charges the SmartRounds microprocessor while in flight and three different non/less- lethal configurations will be available. The “D” shaped .68 caliber projectiles are fired from a SmartRounds air rifle at upwards of 450 feet per second and have an effective range of 150 feet.

“Our premier gas powered rifles are modeled after the Colt Industries M4 and the FN Herstal P90 personal defense weapon. These launchers are light weight, ergonomically designed, and powered by compressed air, nitrogen or CO2. The SmartRounds launchers also have a special electronic trigger feature that allows them to fire in semi-automatic, burst and fully automatic modesadds Mr. Verini.

While SmartRounds do not have the deadly stopping power of high velocity bullets fired from a firearm, such deadly force is generally not necessary to deter many typical crimes. Moreover, there are many situations where deadly force is either, not needed, wanted or even permitted by law. In fact, many states prohibit the use of deadly force unless one's own life or the lives of one's family are at stake. Many crimes do not involve this type of situation, such as burglaries, vandalism, and the like where one’s own life is clearly not in danger.
