LE Systems has developed a new tool, for today's law enforcement, corrections and military communities. Under the sponsorship of DARPA's Joint Program Steering Group, LE Systems has completed and delivered ten prototype non-lethal laser flashlights. The Laser DazzlerTM is designed to allow the offer to 'reach out' to the suspect and interact at a distance, applying a non-lethal force alternative. The Laser DazzlerTM is essentially a handheld, green, 532 nm diode pumped laser. The 532 nm frequency was chosen for its unique ability to react with the human eye in both daylight and reduced light conditions, causing disorientation and confusion.
