All 40mm pneumatic launchers in development
The Eclipse launchers can be integrated with a self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) as it's power source, providing hundreds of shots per tank and breathing air in contaminated environments.
The Eclipse launchers are capable of launching projectiles typically used in other launchers without the need for a shell casing, primer or gunpowder charge. This drastically reduces operating costs and the case-less ammunition reduces the overall weight the operator must carry.
The Eclipse is designed to launch the 40mm EMI (Electro-Muscular Incapacitation) round currently being developed by the United States Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program(JNLWP). The ability to launch these projectiles at safe speeds regardless of range to target will provide an effective and safe alternative to current technologies by reducing blunt impact trauma injuries.
Numerous advantages over other weapons are due to the pneumatic operation and user-selectable velocities. With a low acoustic signature and no muzzle flash, the launchers provide a new level of stealth for the operator and multiple options for escalation of force.
Available ammunition consists of blunt impact rounds with foam tipped or OC powder payloads, pneumatically timed aerosol canisters, smoke, illumination rounds in pyrotechnic or electric versions, IR targeting beacons, hornet's nest and pepperball shot.
