A few days ago a British company Selectamark showed new to the police and the security services — non-lethal weapons marking SelectaDNA High Velocity System. Pistols and rifles shoot balls with synthetic DNA. Each store contains 14 cartridges weighing 1 gram each. Range is 30-40 meters.
No, no. This weapon is not for corporate paintball games. Area of engagement is still very narrow, as the name implies. Balls with synthesized DNA will be applied for the marking of criminals and suspects to facilitate their subsequent finding and detention.
According to a statement Selectamark, this marking is invisible to the naked gas is harmless and can persist for several weeks.
