In their latest update, the Sea Shepherd finally revealed the type of laser they’re using as a defensive measure against the lone Japanese whaling ship tailing them.

It’s called a “Photonic Disruptor” and it’s definitely a lot more advanced than the gadget I previously suspected them carrying. Here are some of the details:

  • It’s classified as a TALI, or Threat Assessment Laser Illuminator and is designed specifically for military and law enforcement use.
  • Has been featured on Discovery Channel’s “Future Weapons.”
  • Is equipped with versatile focus-adjustable collimating lenses to compensate for range and power intensity.
  • Will temporarily overwhelm a threat’s visual senses without causing permanent eye damage.

According to one reviewer, the impact of the laser is momentarily blindness, with the after effects similar to “a flash bulb going off and leaving a bright spot in your version for a minute of so after your picture is taken.”

So, used at a distance, this is obviously meant to be an annoyance. However, I can see in close quarters situations a dangerous scenario of “momentary blindness” leading to a collision. Or the potential excuse to have one.

Its interesting to note that in one of the new photos the Sea Shepherd released, it almost appears as if the Japanese harpoon ship has a photonic disruptor as well; though it may just be the angle of the shot. Both the MV Steve Irwin and Ady Gil have the laser tech on board.
