PepperBall Awarded U.S. Army Contract to Supply VKS System

PepperBall was recently awarded a $650,000 US Army contract for Non-Lethal Protection to supply Variable Kinetic System (VKS) non-lethal launcher to support soldiers with non-lethal force protection measures when out in the field.

The VKS has the same look, feel and fire control system as an AR-15/M-4 Carbine, and is proudly made in the U.S.A. It has been tested and recommended by members of the National Tactical Officers Association.

“We are truly honored the U.S. Army has selected PepperBall’s VKS to use as it’s non-lethal protection in its mission to defending the United States,” said Ron Johnson, CEO of United Tactical Systems. “Our VKS platform was the only non-lethal source that was capable of complying to the U.S. Army’s standards.”

The launcher offers a Dual Feed System, where a user can quickly switch between “Hopper Mode” and “Magazine Mode” during an operation for optimum versatility. A hopper has a capacity of 180 rounds, while a magazine can be loaded with either 10 or 15 rounds.

PepperBall’s VXR projectiles are compatible for the VKS launcher for high-intensity/crowd control operations. The projectiles can be effective out to 150 feet/50 yards, which is equivalent to half the distance of a football field.

PepperBall projectiles, filled with a proprietary irritant, burst upon impact, producing a strong kinetic impact and leaving a debilitating cloud that affects the eyes, nose and respiratory system.
