21st Century Arms

April 2005 Security Services & Risk Management

21st Century Arms used Securex 2005 to introduce the Advanced M-Series and X26-series Taser to the South African market.

The Advanced Taser has recently been approved by the United States Congress to be used on all domestic and international airlines to subdue aggressive occupants, and more importantly, protect the cockpit from terrorist attack.

The original Taser was developed in the 1970s as a 7 W system. Today, the Advanced Taser M26 is 26 W, nearly four times the power of any electronic weapon system in the past. The use of the product on a suspect does not hurt or kill yet has an extremely powerful, effective rate for instant incapacitation. The Advanced Taser M26 is currently being used on an ever increasing basis by over 6500 law-enforcement agencies (over 1500 at 'full deployment', one Taser per officer) in the USA, Canada, Germany and Australia. In addition, there are many other countries in the process of deploying the Advanced Taser M26 from North and South America, Europe and Asia.

The Advanced Taser M26 and the new, smaller, more effective X26 are ideal for law-enforcement to effect non-lethal force against aggressive, non-compliant suspects or prisoners, or to disable suicidal individuals and hostage-takers.

Advanced 18 W M-18L series Home Defence System Tasers are available for civilian purchase, while the 26 W M26 and X26 are restricted items for government, military, law-enforcement, security agencies and personnel, and for emergency services (first responders) and commercial airlines.
