The SHOT Show produced some interesting new products for the law enforcement community, and the Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems (XADS) Light Shield was one of those items. XADS is based out of Anderson, Indiana, and has been producing life-saving less lethal and anti-material directed energy weapons since 2002. XADS has two retired Lt. Generals and a retired Indiana SWAT commander on its advisory board to ensure their products meet real-life operator needs.
XADS has already produced the Threat Assessment Laser Illuminator (TALI) which is focused green laser technology designed to temporarily incapacitate suspects. The TALI has helped stop vehicles at military checkpoints, and disorient suspects on high risk police incidents. A similar technology is the TR3 long range laser illuminator that was designed to prevent pirates from successfully engaging merchant ships. Another technology of XADS is XAP, which is a confidential military product designed to detect, and pre-detonate IED’s.
