Security Devices International Inc. ("SDI" or "The Company") is a
defense technology company specializing in the development,
manufacturing and sale of innovative, next generation non-lethal
The Company is pleased to announce two key sales transactions of their
Blunt Impact Projectiles (BIP). The first is to a Federal Law
Enforcement Agency in the US, which has ordered BIP and Training rounds.
Additionally, SDI has completed a sale of their BIP payload rounds to a
large municipal Law Enforcement Agency in Canada, for crowd control use.
SDI is also pleased to announce the results of independent testing of
their innovative BIP rounds in comparison to three primary competitors
in the less lethal munitions global marketplace.
Several blunt impact rounds from each company were submitted for
testing. Specifically, there was one 37MM impact projectile and two 40MM
impact projectiles that are widely used in the military, police and
correctional services sectors. Testing was performed at 5 different
impact velocities and numerous distances from 30 to 100 meters. Eight
unique force values were collected, as well as the peak of impact force
comparison. This comprehensive analysis also included data points
detailing potential injury severity.
The results clearly showed that SDI's BIP rounds were the safest rounds
tested in both the Impact Force and Blunt Trama protocols, which are
two key indicators of the potential to induce injury upon contact with a
The comparison study was conducted by BioKinetics, an industry
recognized testing laboratory with expertise in blunt trauma and impact
force testing. Biokinetics provides specialized testing and evaluation
services that focus on human injury causation and prevention, across the
military, police/corrections, sports and transportation fields.
"This is a verification of what SDI has been working hard to achieve,
that it presents itself as the safest and most effective impact round on
the market today. By using our patented, innovative energy absorption
system, we can achieve higher levels of safety than in most current
blunt impact rounds available on the market" stated Gregory Sullivan,
President of SDI.
"SDI continues to enhance its market penetration of Law Enforcement
Agencies in North America and abroad, which is seeing the value of our
less lethal munitions that have been designed for greater distances and
high levels of safety" said Sullivan.
