The WRS Roving Vehicle (WRS-RV) was developed to provide emergency inmate and crows control in a compact, movable pepper spray delivery system. The WRS-RV design supports rapid deployment and rapid response. The system can be manually driven or operated by remote control.
The WRS-RV is a heavy duty, low-slung vehicle that is self-contained and impervious to damage by rioters or inmates. The top and sides are metal plate. The tires are protected by removable panels. The controls for driving and nozzle control are located under an access panel at the rear of the vehicle. The nozzle is retracted when not being used and stored under a sliding panel located on top of the vehicle.
An on-board video system consists of two cameras: one located on the nozzle and one looking forward from the vehicle. A character generator displays key system information superimposed on the video display.
The on-board countermeasures system consists of six spray nozzles located on the sides, front, and top of the vehicle. On command, either manual or remote control, the nozzles spray a fog of high potency OC (pepper spray). The countermeasures fog potency is much higher than normal pepper spray strength to discourage an attack on the vehicle.
