Title: Non-Lethal Swimmer Neutralization Study.
Author: Rehn, KW; Riggs, PK
Abstract: The Applied Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Austin (ARL: UT) was tasked to study the means and equipment for non-lethal methods to deter swimmers and scuba divers from restricted areas. This work included identification and evaluation of existing technologies, as well as review of research in security, acoustics, biology, and other fields. Various technologies have been developed as non-lethal weapons for law enforcement, but most of them are not suitable for deterring swimmers and scuba divers, because they are not designed for subsurface use. These existing technologies, as well as equipment currently used for diver deterrence and communication, were evaluated in this study. NOTE: Prepared in cooperation with G2 Software Systems, San Diego, CA.
