M1029, 40mm Non-lethal Crowd Dispersal Cartridge

40mm Area Round, CDC XM1029

M1029, 40mm Non-lethal Crowd Dispersal Cartridge gives the soldier a capability to stun/deter two to three people without penetrating the body by delivering a strong blow to the body. This munition fills a wide range of possible NL weapons applications. In crowd control it gives a soldier, convoy or crowd control formation a multi-shot NL capability that can be used to break contact, enforce a buffer zone (stand off distance) with a violent crowd, or to clear an area of a violent crowd. It can also provide EPW facilities and US military detention facilities with similar capabilities. The round is designed to be fired at the center mass of the adult subject at ranges between 10 meters and 30 meters.
