WESTMINSTER, Colo., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Security With Advanced Technology (Nasdaq: SWAT) announced today that its new, non-lethal self-defense device, the Avurt(TM) IM-5(TM) launcher, is available for pre- sales at a product launch event held in New York City .
The Avurt IM-5 launcher is a small, handheld self-defense device that fits in a purse, holster or backpack that shoots up to five PAVA pepper filled projectiles at attackers up to 40 feet away. The IM-5 launcher's PAVA filled projectiles are non-lethal, but will cause an attacker's nose, throat and eyes to burn, temporarily disabling them. The IM-5 launcher protects from greater distances than conventional pepper spray and stun guns, doesn't have the potential to be lethal the way firearms do, and unlike stun guns the Avurt IM- 5 launcher uses technology that has never been associated with a death.
"The IM-5 launcher provides consumers with more attributes than pepper spray and Taser(TM) with its four deterrents: a laser sight, a loud bang, impact of projectile and debilitating effects of the PAVA pepper powder, along with a range of 40 feet, said Scott Sutton , president and CEO of Security With Advanced Technology. "We believe the IM-5 launcher is an unmatched option for non-lethal personal protection."
The Avurt IM-5 Launcher Kit is available for an introductory price of
