We use the latest LIDAR technology from Leica and Faro to accurately map incident scenes for documenting evidence and for measuring bullet trajectories. The data captured from these instruments can place the viewer in the scene from any prospective making them invaluable tools for crime scene reconstruction. We have also used UAS (drones) to supplement the capture of land based point cloud data.
In 2004, Wyant was part of an extensive study that evaluated the flammability potential when OC sprays and TASERs were applied simultaneously. In 2007, the CRT Less Lethal guys published an article on Lawofficer Magazine magazine.
Our test piqued the interest of Mythbusters (episode 146), then CSI (season 8, episode 15), which each featured our experiment in an episode.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, fire associated with a TASER application appeared in the news again with reports of the ignition of a man covered with hand sanitizer. Always remember that a spark from any Conducted Electrical Weapon-CEW (TASER) will instantly ignite flammable substances under the right conditions, causing injury or death.
12 Gauge Bean Bags-Youtube
Uploaded a video with an overview of 12 gauge been bags used in law enforcement.
UAV for Force Investigators
At the Fall 2018 SIFR meeting in Henderson, Leica Geosystems and Holmans USA assisted us with our presentation to demonstrate for the group how to utilize terrestrial scanning and drones to accurately map crime scenes for investigations. We got to fly the Yuneec H520 and see the new RTC360 scanner in action.
40mm CTS and Beretta
We are currently working on another launcher comparison. This time we are looking at 40mm class single launchers from Combined Systems Penn Arms and Beretta using less lethal munitions. Look for a youtube video soon along with velocity data and high speed footage.
ALS Distraction Device
We saw these a couple years ago at SHOT, but just had the opportunity to handle these guys. The TRMR-LE by ALS utilizes a 12 gauge smokeless blank load, which activates on impact. The result is a ~170 dB report ( at 5′) and a flash, with fewer hazards associated with traditional flash bang type distraction devices. Thanks to Andy Willms at SAA for the demo.
Tactical Edge Article
In the Winter 2017 edition of the Tactical Edge, the publication of the National Tactical Officers Association, we wrote an article discussing tips and techniques that can help assist in the investigation of a CEW (conducted electrical weapon) or TASER deployment.
Finally got a chance between rain storms to try out our labradar with some 12G beanbag rounds against the Oehler 35 chronograph. Muzzle velocities were +/- 5 feet/sec with the Labradar tracking the beanbag all the way down range. Look for an article soon in Tactical Edge related to our 40mm experiment..
