Laser Energetics (Mercerville, NJ), developer of strategic lasers for applications in industry, science, medicine, homeland security, and the military, launched its Dazer Laser Light Fighting Technologies: Non-lethal laser weapons to fight enemies and threats. Laser Energetics has had a primary focus on its Alexandrite laser technology.

Robert D. Battis, founder and CEO of Laser Energetics, said, "This weapon is humanitarian and will save the lives of both the enforcer and the threat at longer ranges. No longer will the enforcer have to risk their lives to bring the threat in closer to them in order to engage them, which puts the enforcer's life at risk." Because this weapon can be fired continuously, if the enforcer misses they can continue to aim the beam at the threats' face until they hit the target, unlike other non-lethal weapons that have to be reloaded and only work at close range endangering the enforcer.

The two models being introduced are the Dazer Laser DEFENDER and the Dazer Laser GUARDIAN. These non-lethal weapons have the ability to control the threat at ranges of 1 meter to 2400 meters (model dependent). The Dazer Laser emits a green "eye safe" laser beam that is shaped into approximately a 1 foot to 8 foot Dazer Zone (model dependent) that is focused on the eyes of the threat. When the vision of the threat is temporarily impaired, their balance is affected, and they become affected by nausea. This controls the threat making it difficult for them to maneuver.
