K.I.T.T's Tactical Equipment
K.I.T.T is equipped with many tools that are useful in a wide range of applications. Below is an abridged list of tools that he uses to interact with the world around him.
K.I.T.T's most apparent feature is his front scan bar called the Anamorphic Equalizer. This device is a fiber-optic array of electronic eyes. This scanner can see in all visual wavelengths as well as X-Ray and infrared. Occasionally, the bar will pulse in different patterns and sweep slowly or rapidly, depending on K.I.T.T's mood. The scan bar is also KITT's most vulnerable area.

Grappling Hook and Winch
K.I.T.T houses a tri-bladed steel grappling hook under his front bumper. It is attached to a 1-inch thick steel cable. The cable is 30 feet in length.
I will admit that you used this quite creatively. - Pierce
K.I.T.T uses a Carbon Dioxide powered Gas Laser. The CO2 laser produces a beam of infrared light with the principal wavelength bands centering around 9.4 and 10.6 micrometers.
K.I.T.T can adjust the intensity of the laser from hot enough to cut through steel, to weak enough that it does not burn skin.
This laser is not meant to be a weapon, and under no circumstance will K.I.T.T use it to harm any living thing.
K.I.T.T is equipped with a FLIR system for detecting thermal energy. He can detect heat signatures up to ten miles away and through various materials. His imaging software is very precise, allowing him to gain a very detailed picture of what he is scanning.
Seat Ejection System
K.I.T.T has two front ejection seats. They can be used to give his Driver a boost to a higher location, or for disposing of unwanted passengers.
Just remember to put your top down before attempting to eject someone. Even if you don't like them. - Pierce
Microscanners are tiny audio and visual sensors embedded into the grooves of KITT's body. They allow for visual tracking and display of anything around him. He has twenty-eight of these installed on his exterior. There are no blind spots. There are fourteen Microscanners in his interior as well.
