<p>SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii - Sgt. Aaron Knight, Personal Security Detachment, Headquarters Company, 25th Inf. Div., "experiences" the latest in nonlethal incapacitating technology as part of division training on the Taser X26E, a device that will be available to select Soldiers downrange. </p><p>The Taser X26E overrides a subject's ability to move by causing uncontrollable muscle contractions. As part of the certification and training offered by the Division's Provost Marshal Office, each participant is voluntarily subjected to a simulated exposure at the conclusion of training in order to better understand the technology's capabilities and its effect on noncompliant subjects.</p>
