In this Thursday, July 30, 2015 photo Chad Zrate, an engineering manager at Micron Products, Inc., demonstrates using a launcher that fires a 40mm Blunt Impact Projectile, or PIB, at the manufacturing plant in Fitchburg, Mass. The projectiles utilize new technology developed by the company to provide law enforcement with less-lethal ammunition engineered to cushion and displace the force of impact, designed to cause pain and discomfort but not serious injury. The technology is part of a push to find ways for law enforcement to be able to use force with non-deadly means. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
