Evaluation of Retina Exposition by Optical Incapacitating Device
Keywords:eye model, non-lethal weapon, retina, spot diagram
It has turned out that the usage of non-lethal weapons is an effective way of tackling adversaries in many security scenarios. The security staff’s goal is to use the lowest possible level of power needed to manage successfully the situation during the conflicts with adversaries. The security staff can employ a wide spectrum of possible reactions beginning with the voice alert through the physical interaction up to the usage of e.g. firearms. The optical incapacitating device is one of possible realizations of non-lethal weapons. Therefore, the article deals with the description of the designed optical incapacitating device and the evaluation of retina exposition when used.
