The Blunt Impact Projectile (BIP) has a clear competitive advantage over other less-lethal kinetic energy ammunitions. SDI’s disruptive technologies can be used for both short and long distances with a greater level of safety, accuracy and reliability than competing products.
The BIP DNA less-lethal round delivers a liquid substance that provides a forensic coding system for asset protection, vehicle marking and more importantly, human tracking.
SDI’s forensic marking technology enables the projectile to not only provide pain compliance, but also engages the target by marking the skin, clothing, and vehicles with designated codes only seen under a (UV) black light, or microscope.
SDI is able to provide professional analysis and expert witness testimony by certified forensic marking liquid experts following deployment. Additionally, a full training package on forensic marking capabilities and evidence collection of the unique liquid for successful prosecutions in a court of law is all inclusive.
Each projectile contains uniquely identifiable rare metal compounds. By using a combination of up to 30 materials, over 1 billion unique forensic codes are available. These codes are invisible to the naked eye but fluoresces yellow under ultra-violet (UV) light, unbeknownst to the target.
Once dry, it becomes non-transferable and is virtually impossible to remove. The forensic solution lasts for weeks on skin (before exfoliating off) and even longer on clothes and shoes.
All of the SDI family of BIP products are based around the patented collapsible head technology which acts as a riot deterrent, a crowd-control medium, and an alternative to lethal force in critical situations that demand less-lethal solutions.
Using SDI’s innovative technologies, the BIP DNA was designed for operational effectiveness at distances of up to 80 m (262 feet), while still enhancing target safety if engaged from close range–even as close as 2 m (6.5 feet).
Due to its internal energy absorption system and collapsible nose (“mushroom effect”), the advanced engineering of the BIP DNA enables the projectile to engage the target with maximum pain compliance while deploying a designated payload.
