Short-Range Portable Laser Dazzlers


Short-Range Portable Laser Dazzlers
 

DRDO has developed two variants of short-range portable laser dazzlers (PLD) especially suited for counter-insurgency operations. The hand-held and squad weapon mounted versions of PLD have an maximum operation range of 50 m and 500 m, respectively. Both variants are completely non-lethal and produce randomly flickering green laser output sufficient to cause a temporary dazzling effect and have in-built safety/interlock features against unauthorised use. The device has been tested under simulated conditions.
