Non-Lethal Weapon / Escalation of Force

The Maxa Beam is used to detect, deter, and disrupt at long ranges. The searchlight’s powerful output and strobe immediately disorient and impair a target’s vision, giving the operator time to determine intent, change the target’s behavior and minimize the use of lethal force.
