NATO Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD) exhibition “non-lethal weapons – soft power”
The fourth biannual Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD) exhibition will be held at NATO Headquarters between 26 and 27 October 2005 , in parallel with the Fall 2005 CNAD meeting. Its theme will be: “ Non-Lethal Weapons – Soft Power.”
The exhibition is intended to build on the successes of the “Defence Against Terrorism” Programme of Work as well as the “Safe Horizons – Shielding NATO Aircraft“ and “The Digital Battlefield” exhibitions, which were held at NATO Headquarters in the Spring 2005 and Fall 2004.
The focus this time will be on technologies and equipment related to Non-Lethal Weapons and their ability to incapacitate or repel personnel, with a low probability of fatality or permanent injury, or to disable equipment, with minimal undesired damage or impact on the environment. Companies from up to 20 member and partner nations, coming from both Europe and North America , will be showing their latest technologies aimed at inventive new ideas for non-lethal military capabilities covering a broad spectrum of uses, including crowd and riot control.
The exhibition will take place at NATO Headquarters in the Press Area. It can be visited on 26 October from 09:00 to 18:00 and on 27 October 2005 from 09:00 to 14:30 .
