Abstract:

The report presents an analysis of measured physiological effects resulting from impacts of several different types of allegedly less lethal projectiles. The analysis gives indications as to which projectile characteristics tend to correlate most highly with damage and which critical parts of the body are most susceptible to damageundesirable effect from the various projectiles. In addition, some preliminary findings are given as to what characteristics tend to optimize a kinetic-energy dispersal weapon.
