Lamperd Less Lethal Approved for Financial Package to Support Product Development Research Program with Lambton College
SARNIA, Ontario, September 11, 2019 Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. (OTC PINK: LLLI), an innovation leader and manufacturer of advanced security solutions for law enforcement, military and security agencies worldwide, is pleased to announced that the company has been approved for a financial support package from the SONAMI program of the Canadian government to conduct a research program in conjunction with Lambton College of Ontario. The purpose of this research is to test new methods for the concentration of Lamperd\’s pepper formula used in its aerial burst and hand thrown devices for crowd control. No other company in the world parallels the extent to which Lamped develops these types of products for safety and effectiveness. This research program will commence on September 23, 2019 and run for a period of six months.
Development of Standardized Procedure of Capsaicin Quantification in Aerosolized Crowd Control Devices
Non-lethal methods of crowd and personnel control is a growing market as lethal methods become less acceptable. Pepper spray is a key tool in the non-lethal arsenal. Currently, there are guidelines for the potency of pepper sprays, but no rules or laws and most importantly, no methods are in place to actually measure personnel exposure in the deployment of these sprays. As more and more scrutiny of any use of force becomes the norm, scientific, quantized levels of pepper spray exposure is highly likely to be required. The proposed work would create a method of collecting aerosolized samples during the use of pepper spray devices within the pepper cloud. Further, a method of measuring that sample will also be developed and both may be presented to the industry for adoption as a standard at the discretion of the industry partner.
Benefit to Private Sector:
The opportunity lies in competitive advantage by providing weaponized pepper products with measured and certified levels of capsaicin and related capsaicinoids (CRC), as well as getting ahead of eventual regulatory requirements. The military market is beginning to understand that lethal force is not always desirable and is asking for certification to ensure consistent levels of CRC are delivered and that batches are tracked. The police market is increasingly being drawn into litigation for real or imagined physical and emotional damages when lethal or non-lethal force is applied. The ability to quantify and certify the CRC level of nonlethal weapons used will provide them with a powerful tool in fighting these legal battles and will soon be required.
The non-lethal ammunition market is expected to grow to $5.2 billion per year by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of 8.3% over that period. Lamperd Less Lethal is a key player in this industry and is anticipating even more rapid growth.
