Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9952771A1] A non-lethal TASER3 Area Denial Device can be deployed to prevent enemy reconnaissance troops or small raiding parties from penetrating lines and for their capture. The TASER3 alternative uses electronic stun capability in combination with a landmine housing and deployment system. Regardless of which of the two flat sides of the device is in the up position, it provides the ability to launch the proper set of wires at an upward angle to intercept the subject when the target subject is in the correct position. It also simultaneously establishes a ground wire connection and prevents the second (downward facing) unusable set of wires from loading or short circuiting. Grounding of unusable wires is prevented by a slidable shutter or gate (4) which blocks launch of one of the lower set of wires even when the device senses an intrusion into its trip space. The shutter or gate (4) is gravity sensitive and automatically settles into a blocking position as soon as the device comes to rest.
