06190022 is referenced by 37 patents and cites 16 patents.

A self-contained non-lethal security device for providing an optimally effective and eye-safe beam for use as a high-brightness visual countermeasure. The security device has one or more wavelengths of laser or light-emitting diode (LED) light in a continuous or flicker mode in order to provide a glare or flashblinding visual effect. A flicker mode of two wavelengths at opposite ends of the visible spectrum (e.g., red and green) produces heightened disorientation to the adversary. Replacing one or all of the laser light source with LEDs for shorter range applications reduces the overall cost of such a security device.
