ShoX is a potential breakthrough in less-than-lethal “electric” ballistic products for law enforcement, military, anti-terrorism and Homeland Security initiatives due to the versatility, effectiveness and multiple applications.
Our specially formulated rounds are second to none in true flight performance. ShoX packs a punch and provides the distraction needed to provide community safety while repelling threats. Peace of mind is our goal knowing you can protect yourself with less chance of fatally injuring an individual.
Caliber: .68 x .72 Payload: 6.2g Weight: 8.3g Velocity: 425 FPS Min Safe Distance: 8 feet Max Effective Range: 100ft Kinetic: 12-28J Shelf Life: 2 years
ShoX offers robust data validation and traceability by utilizing smart contracts and distributed ledger technology that is the heart of the blockchain. Solutions can be deployed to Ethereum or Microsoft blockchain workbench and consortium can be deployed with relevant parties. Our solution utilizes a hybrid blockchain solution so transactions happen in real time so users don’t experience the traditional latency associated with blockchain applications.
Utilizing smart contracts to anchor unique identifiers for rounds, and magazines to the blockchain provides the ability to track both items data including the complete history of the item with manufacturer details, transport details, age, distribution details that include the date and time the round was distributed, and who the round was distributed. After use rounds can be “checked in” to the blockchain as being spent and the final state and use details can be included in the existing data trail to create an end to end verifiable detail of the complete lifetime of the round or magazine. Identities of participants (investigators, law enforcement) agreeing to the statements and evidence of the scene, authenticated through cryptographic primitives such as digital signatures can then include cryptographic proofs of this data that are included with the history of the round or magazine. All blockchain contract data is protected by strong cryptographic hashing algorithms that ensure data can not be manipulated, these protective hashes are further secured by the use of the distributed ledger & data validation consortium in the event of attempted data manipulation bad data is automatically flagged and removed from the distribution and bad actors are immediately identified.
ShoX is a Human Electro Muscular Incapacitation projectile that emits electro shock to a target when fired from a less-than-lethal projectile and incapacitates them for 30 seconds.
How does ShoX work?
A dual barbed probed system is attached to the projectile’s electrical circuit. Pulling the trigger on the compatible weapon breaks open a compressed CO2/nitrogen cartridge inside the gun and fires the projectile into contact with a body and a charge flows into the muscles upon penetration of the skin.
Can Shox Really Incapacitate An Assailant?
Yes. ShoX uses "electro-muscular disruption (EMD)" technology. For example, a current applied to the arm will be reduced to .001 percent of the original signal by the time it reaches the heart.
ShoX has a 5 milliamp current and it takes at least 1,000 milliamps — 1 amp — to injure muscles, nerves and the heart. Higher amps, starting at 10,000 milliamps or 10 amps, cause the heart to stop and produce severe burns, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
ShoX completely overrides the central nervous system and causes an uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissue, allowing the ShoX to physically debilitate a target regardless of pain tolerance or mental focus.
Does Shox Affect The Heart Or A Cardiac Pacemaker?
ShoX output is well below the level established as "safe" by the federal government in approving such devices as the electrified cattle fence. Any modern pacemaker is designed to withstand electrical defibrillator pulses that are hundreds of times stronger than ShoX output.
Must The Probes Penetrate The Body To Be Effective?
Yes. The proprietary design of ShoX only allows activation upon the dual barbed system penetrating the skin.
What If The Dual Probes System Miss?
The unique capability of ShoX projectiles allows the user multiple shot options at the target. Should the user miss or engage a second attacker, they can fire more rounds as needed.
Is ShoX considered to be ammunition by the ATF?
No. ShoX is a less-than-lethal projectile similar to a paintball projectile but produces a temporary shock to the human body.
Is ShoX available for consumers?
No, ShoX is only available to law enforcement agencies and registered private security firms.
Can ShoX be used as a paintball?
No, ShoX HEMI projectiles can still be deadly if used incorrectly. There is no guarantee that our projectiles are non-lethal as penetration on vulnerable tissue can result in death.
Is ShoX available outside of the United States?
Yes, we ship internationally. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to order from outside the United States.
Is ShoX available in more than one color?
No, currently ShoX is only available in the black/teal color scheme.
On skin, the most common effects are superficial burns or small puncture wounds, caused by the metal probes that deliver the current not being immediately pulled off after a person has been shot.
ShoX can cause muscle contractions, but do not appear to trigger the release of the muscle enzyme associated with muscle cell damage — creatine kinase.
For people without cardiac conditions, the electrical discharges of ShoX are too short to affect the heart muscle or cause abnormal heart rhythms. Even for those with cardiac conditions, the proper use of the device does not appear to cause issues.
Complications related to the brain or nervous system are rare, but may occur, including loss of consciousness, seizures, abnormal brain activity and confusion. This is more likely to occur if a subject is shot at a close range or directly to the head, which is NOT RECOMMENDED. The probability of causing a seizure is very low.
ShoX may contribute to falling, which can cause brain injury.
Users should assess subjects immediately after being subdued by a ShoX projectile for injuries.
