This technology pertains to the implementation of biometric security and safety controls on weapons, such as guns, rocket launchers, etc. where there could be a system that emits an electrical shock to anyone that tries to use the weapons system without being authorized by the biometric control systems. This would prevent a police officer’s weapon being taken by a criminal and being used against them. The same would be true on the battlefield, where weapons could be programmed to only operate for friendly forces, so there would be an authorization system that all of the weapons would use to authorize legitimate users of those weapons, and it would be capable of operating in an electronic denial area, such as where there are electronics that block the wireless signals of all electronics. The systems would also be protected from EMP damage, so that if an EMP shockwave was emitted, the weapons systems would still operate.
