Prevailing uncertain economic circumstances, the complex political situation, and the deteriorating security condition across the globe have given rise to popular unrest and protests. Armed forces are increasingly called upon and nation building missions and law enforcement officers are forced to deal with new kinds of threats. It is imperative that they are well equipped to handle the various future security scenarios. Armed forces increasingly operate in urban terrain where they fight enemies who are diffused among civilian population and law enforcement officers often have to deal with uncontrollable mob and transnational threats. These changes in the security situation have emphasized the need for non-lethal weapons which would act as an option between shout and shoot, that is, between verbal warning or psychological operation and using lethal force.
Non-lethal weapons are specially designed and employed to incapacitate an individual or a vehicle while reducing injury to personnel and damage to property and surrounding. They are broadly classified into counter-personnel and counter-material capabilities which are used for controlling crowds and for stopping vehicles respectively. They provide a flexible alternative to respond to the diverse challenge that a law enforcement officer or a war fighter faces. Some of the missions where they prove to be imperative are patrols, checkpoints, crowd control, convoys, and vessel stopping.
The use of non-lethal capability could substantially increase the effectiveness of the armed forces to handle escalating civilian upheaval and increase the engagement options of the law enforcement officer. Avoiding civilian casualties has become a very important criterion and it also strengthens the country's own political cause apart from enhancing security options to deal with threats. Non-lethal weapons thus offer a wide range of capabilities for the conduct of war and in the support of homeland defense. The peace keeping operations of 1990s had previously triggered interest in spending on these weapons. The lessons learned from recent wars in Afghanistan and the prevailing unrest across the globe had led to an increase in demand for new and effective non-lethal capabilities which in turn has reflected in the need for increase in R&D cost.
The development of this weapon is like any other weapons which requires extensive testing, a precise knowledge of its effects on people, and the development of tactics, techniques, and procedures for its deployment. This has encouraged an extensive partnership between government organizations, private industries, research institutions, universities, and medical institutions. This trend has made the development a lot easier and made its deployment easy by assuring compliance to health and safety standards.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
