PepperBall, a division of United Tactical Systems, has entered into a partnership agreement with the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center in Amman, Jordan, to create non-lethal training course for global police, military and security forces.
The course will contain a three-day weapons, tactics and armorersâ€™ training program as well as training on PepperBallâ€™s Variable Kinetic System launcher, PepperBall said Friday.
VKS is designed to shoot projectiles from 280 to 400 feet per second and fire PepperBallâ€™s round and VXR shaped projectiles.
Glenn Katz, executive vice president of global sales at PepperBall, said the company’s partnership with KASOTC seeks to help â€œaddress the increased regional demand for tactical non-lethal solutions for police, military and special operations.â€
KASOTC is aÂ premier training center for police, military and special operations in the Middle East.
PepperBall manufactures .68 launchers, OC/PAVA projectiles and other non-lethal products for government agencies in 45 countries worldwide.
