TASER® Debuts Its 25-Foot XP Air Cartridge At IACP
New Cartridge Delivers Enhanced Clothing Penetration, Accuracy and Extended Range
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - TASER International, Inc. (Nasdaq: TASR), a market leader in advanced non-lethal devices announced today the debut of the new XP Air Cartridge with extended 25 foot maximum range. The XP Air Cartridge is able to achieve distances of up to 25 feet while maintaining a truer flight trajectory by maximizing probe stability. The accuracy and dispersion of the new XP at full 25 foot deployment is comparable to that of our standard cartridge at its full 21 foot range. The new XP was featured at the TASER International Booth during the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in Los Angeles, California on November 13, 2004.
"The bi-metal design of the 25 foot XP enhances TASER devices ability to penetrate heavy clothing while increasing accuracy and flight stability at extended ranges," said Rick Smith, CEO of TASER International. "The new XP cartridge utilizes an enhanced 2,200 PSI nitrogen propulsion system and bi-metal probe construction to increase impact momentum onto the target, thus maximizing clothing compression."
"The 25 foot XP Cartridge is a further enhancement on our patented technology that has already demonstrated overwhelming success and acceptance in the field at over 6,000 law enforcement agencies worldwide," concluded Mr. Smith.
The new XP cartridge is compatible with all currently fielded TASER M26 and TASER X26 systems and will ship in December 2004.
