Why is the U.S. developing non-lethal weapons capabilities? How will access to these systems improve the safety and security of the U.S. and its deployed forces? What role should these systems play in the context of homeland security? What are the limitations and drawbacks of using these capabilities and can they be overcome so that non-lethal weapons can be fully integrated into the military’s toolkit?

This event discussed these and other issues associated with the emergence of non-lethal weapons systems based on advanced technologies. Panelists also provided an overview and update on the current state of systems development.

Speakers at the December 7th event are:

  • Dr. Steven Bucci, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affair
  • Col. Kirk Hymes, Director, Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate
  • Dr. William R. Graham, former Science Advisor to the President and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
