Costa Mesa, CA
(October 19, 2011) (NYSE Amex: TTTM) www.t3motion.com - T3 Motion,
Inc. T3 Motion, Inc. today announced the launch of the T3 Non-Lethal Response Vehicle (NLRV), designed specifically to provide law enforcement with humane and safe initiatives used during riots and violent protests. This new product line is designed with proven T3 technologies in mind, featuring the identical acute maneuverability, clean-technology and 24-hour patrol capabilities that T3 Motion products are known for. The T3 NLRV will be unveiled at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago on October 23.
The T3 NLRV’s effectiveness for humane crowd control is based on a threefold approach. Semi-automatic, non-lethal launchers will be stowed away and are easily accessed by the officer in the event of a violent outbreak. The launchers will be compatible with various types of non-lethal ammunition including pepper balls, water balls, dye markers or rubber projectiles, none of which would seriously injure rioters. Each vehicle can store up to 10,000 rounds, allowing for long deployments that could not be achieved by an officer on foot. High-intensity LED deterrent strobe lights, specifically designed to deter a disorderly crowd, are incorporated into the vehicle. These deterrent lights provide long-life LED operation with low energy consumption and were designed with Whelen Engineering. The vehicle is equipped with a riot shield to physically protect the officer from crowds.
"T3 Motion continues to provide solutions for the modern day law enforcement agency. The T3 NLRV incorporates the core of T3 technologies, capitalizing on our flagship stand-up platform to expand the T3 Series ESV line" stated Ki Nam, CEO of T3 Motion. "As the number of global riots and protests increase, law enforcement agencies are adjusting tactical responses to humanely and effectively restore the peace and control the crowd. The T3 NLRV offers agencies the tools to swiftly take control of the situation while preserving the safety of citizens and police departments alike."
The T3 NLRV launch is on the heels of its mobile T3 Automated License Plate Recognition System (ALPR) announced in June of this year. The T3 ALPR automatically scans license plates at a rate up to 7,500 vehicles per hour, notifying the officer of a wanted plate in seconds and providing agencies with real-time knowledge and post-action criminal intelligence.
T3 Motion’s flagship product, the T3 Series Electric Stand-up Vehicle, has been on the market since 2006 and is known worldwide as a cost-effective, clean-technology tactical vehicle. T3 NLRV model utilizes proven T3 technologies known for easy operation, maneuverability and cost-effectiveness, but is specifically designed for larger crowds with stronger response requirements. Currently, T3 ESVs are deployed at over 180 law enforcement agencies in over 30 countries worldwide.
