Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0001]
    This invention relates generally to the weapons field, and more specifically to a weapon with an input device, such as a camera or a microphone.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    Stun guns are less-than-lethal weapons used by army personnel and police officers as protection against terrorist and criminal attacks. Stun guns work by applying a high-voltage, but low-current, electrical charge. Since the nervous system in the human body works by sending electrical charges through neural pathways, the electrical charge provided by a stun gun “confuses” the nervous system. This confusion can cause a recipient of an electrical charge from a stun gun to feel paralyzed for a brief instant, or can cause a spasm or convulsion in an area of their body. Because stun guns are considered less-than-lethal, they have become a weapon of choice by many law enforcement agencies throughout the world.
  • [0003]
    Stun guns could, however, be abused by law enforcement officials because of the potential to cause temporary paralysis without leaving substantial visible marks on the human body. Careful training largely eliminates this concern. Nevertheless, there is a need in the stun gun field, and in the broader weapon field, to create a system that allows a user to restrain a recipient during a terrorist or criminal attack and that also increases the accountability of the user.

  • DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • [0010]
    The following description of the preferred embodiments of the invention is not intended to limit the invention to these preferred embodiments, but rather to enable any person skilled in the art to make and use this invention.
  • [0011]
    As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the system 10 of the preferred embodiments includes a weapon 12, an input device 14 to record information, a memory device 16 to store recorded information, and a security device 18 to inhibit unauthorized tampering of the recorded information. The system 10 has been specifically designed to record information while the weapon 12 is used. The recorded information should increase the accountability of army personnel and police officers. The system 10 may also be used by individuals to provide evidence of a terrorist, criminal, or personal attack.
  • [0012]
    The weapon 12 of the preferred embodiments functions to restrain or wound a recipient during an attack. The weapon 12 is preferably one of several variations. In the first, second, and third variations, the weapon 12 is an electronic stun device 20. The electronic stun device 20 preferably includes a first electrical member 22 to contact a recipient at a first location, a second electrical member 24 to contact the recipient at a second location, a power source 26 having opposing charges, and an activation circuit 28 to selectively connect one of the opposing charges to the first electrical member 22 and connect the other of the opposing charges to the second electrical member 24. These connections send an electrical charge through the recipient, which can cause the recipient to feel temporarily paralyzed. The variations of the electronic stun device 20 may include other suitable devices and components, as discussed below. In the fourth variation, the weapon 12 is a conventional firearm. Although there are certain advantages to these particular variations, the weapon 12 may take any suitable form.

Preferably, the power source 26 is also connected to the input device 14. More preferably, the power source 26 is connected to the electronic stun device 20 and to the input device 14 such that if the power source 26 has enough electrical charge to power the electronic stun device 20, then it must have enough electrical charge to power the input device 14. In this manner, the system 10 could not be used without the ability to record information. Alternatively, the input device 14 may be connected to the power source 26 in any suitable manner or may be connected to any other suitable power device.

The trigger mechanism 52 is preferably an electromechanical device, but may alternatively be any suitable device that receives an input. Preferably, the trigger mechanism 52 automatically and simultaneously powers both the electronic stun device 20 and the input device 14. The input device 14 may alternatively be triggered by other devices, such as a safety lock or any other suitable device.
  • [0017]
    The deployment circuit 54 functions to ignite the propellant 44 after an input from the user has been received by the trigger mechanism 52.

    As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the input device 14 of the preferred embodiments functions to record information during the use of the weapon 12, which should increase the accountability of army personnel and police officers. The input device 14 is preferably one of several variations. In a first variation, the input device 14 includes a microphone that functions to record audio information. The microphone is preferably a conventional microphone, but may be any suitable device able to record sound. In a second variation, the input device 14 includes a camera that functions to record video information. The camera is preferably a conventional camera, but may be any suitable device able to record images using visual and/or infrared light waves. In a third variation, the input device 14 includes a sensor adapted to record environmental information, such as temperature, humidity, time, and date, which can be used to analyze the effectiveness of the weapon 12. The sensor is preferably a conventional sensor, but may be any suitable device able to record environmental parameters or conditions. In alternative variations, the input device 14 may include any suitable combination or permutation of the above input devices. Although there are certain advantages to these particular variations, the input device 14 may take any suitable form.
  • [0030]
    The input device 14 of the preferred embodiments may also include a processor 92, which functions to code and/or compress the captured information.

  • [0031]
    The memory device 16 and the security device 18 of the preferred embodiments function to store recorded information and to inhibit unauthorized tampering of the recorded information, respectively. As used in this document, “inhibit” means “to prohibit or to discourage,” “unauthorized” means “without the legal or ethical right,” and “tampering” means “altering or transferring.” Like the weapon 12, the memory device 16 and the security device 18 are preferably one of several variations. In the first and second variations, the memory device 16 is mounted to the weapon 12 in a manner to allow removal of the memory device 16 from the weapon 12. In the third, fourth, and fifth variations, the memory device 16 is mounted to the weapon 12 in a manner to inhibit removal of the memory device 16 from the weapon 12.
  • [0032]
    In the first variation of the memory device 16 and the security device 18, as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the memory device 16 is removably mounted to the weapon 12 and the security device 18 is adapted to require a physical key 110 before allowing access to the memory device 16. This variation is preferably accomplished with a flash device 94 as the memory device 16 and with a mechanical lock 96 on a hinged portion 98 of the weapon 12 as the security device 18.

    The second variation of the memory device 16 and the security device 18 is preferably similar to the first variation, except that the security device 18 is adapted to require an electronic authorization before allowing access to the recorded information. This variation is preferably accomplished with a software-encoded password lock on the flash device 94. The variation may, however, be alternatively accomplished with other suitable devices and methods.
  • [0034]
    In the third, fourth, and fifth variations of the memory device 16 and the security device 18, as shown in FIGS. 7-10, the memory device 16 is mounted to the weapon 12 in a manner to inhibit removal of the memory device 16 from the weapon 12. This variation is preferably accomplished by enclosing the weapon 12 around the memory device 16, but may alternatively be accomplished by any other suitable devices or methods.

This variation is preferably accomplished with a magnetic read switch 112 embedded in the weapon 12 and a magnet 114 embedded in a cradle 116. When sufficiently aligned, the magnet 114 flips the magnetic read switch 112, which allows use of the output device 102. The cradle 116 is preferably designed to allow sufficient alignment when the weapon 12 is placed within the cradle 116. The variation, of course, may be alternatively accomplished with other suitable devices and methods.
  • [0038]
