The CHP Laser DazzlerTM is especially designed for applications where subject vision impairment must be achieved at distance, in very bright ambient conditions including clear sunny daylight. It is the most compact laser device available that is suitable for this purpose.The CHP with its higher power creates a credible glare effect in a larger spot size for use on moving vehicles or individuals. This feature is critical for the protection of Entry Control Points and convoys, at distance, in bright ambient conditions. On going eye examinations continue to demonstrate no eye damage from repeated direct exposures of the CHP at and beyond the minimum 20-meter stand off distance.
A dazzler is a type of a directed-energy weapon employing intense visible light, usually generated by a laser (laser dazzler). It is a non-lethal weapon intended to cause temporary blindness or disorientation.

The Personnel Halting and Stimulation Response rifle (PHASR) is a prototype non-lethal laser dazzler developed by the U.S. Department of Defense. Its purpose is to temporarily disorient and blind a target.
