Catherine you raise a good question regarding the number of different ways that scientists and engineers are coming up with to inflict pain at a non-lethal level. I think part of the incentive to do so is that despite the various ways, there are actually very few that have been used. There are many systems in testing, but that's where these systems have languished, in testing and I think companies are trying to come up with the solution that is effective and also palatable to finally get sent to the field rather than back to the lab. My case in point is the Active Denial System after years in development and saying that this would be deployed in Iraq, it's still not there.

my feelings exactly, nick. we have to keep developing them until we get one or a few that will fit the bill.
