Our next piece of less lethal tech comes to us from a company called AEGIS who specializes in less lethal intermediate force options for military, law enforcement, corrections, and private security. This company based out of Rockville Maryland produces a semi-compact yet mighty less lethal device for the control of non-compliant subjects dubbed the MK 63 Trident. This multifaceted weapon combines all of today’s leading less lethal technology into one awesome package; electroshock, chemical agents, distraction devices, and blunt force trauma. All these options allow for fast transfer up and down the force continuum depending on what the situation calls for. There is pepper spray for further distances as well as a distraction high intensity strobe light. In circumstances of hand to hand combat the Trident can be used as a martial arts tonfa for blocking or striking, and it also delivers electric shocks like a drive stun device. The MK 63 Trident has been subjected to prolonged independent safety studies to insure that it remains as less lethal as possible and has been tested to with stand drops from 21 feet to ensure it’s field reliability. In addition this weapon is water proof up to three meters. In addition the unit has a tactical rail for mounting additional upgrades or accessories. This weapon system is now being field tested by law enforcement officers of Colerain and Fairfax Ohio, who so far all seem to like the easy use and diversity of this product. This all comes to us from a company that stands by it’s less lethal credo, ” Defend. Protect. Preserve.” I have requested a demo device from the manufacturer to conduct further tests in order to provide a further detailed review on this product. Keep checking back for future updates about the MK 63 Trident.
Unit’s MSRP = $700
