K.I.T.T's Weapon Systems
K.I.T.T's Primary Directive is to protect human life. Sometimes, that calls for incapacitating those that would harm others, particularly his Driver. It has been hard-wired into every inch of K.I.T.T that under no circumstances must he intentionally take a life. As such he has been equipped with several Compliance Weapons, also known as "Less-Lethal Weapons".
K.I.T.T's Dazzler is a type of a directed-energy weapon employing intense visible light, generated by a DPSS laser with green light output at 532 nm, essentially a greater-intensity version of the green laser pointer. The advantage of 532 nm wavelength lies in its ability to interact with the human eye in both daylight and reduced light conditions. It is a non-lethal weapon intended to cause temporary blindness or disorientation
Light Machine Guns
K.I.T.T is equipped with two light machine guns that fire wax bullets. Wax bullets are made of paraffin wax, and are pressed into a primed cartridge case. Gun powder is not used; the primer provides all the power. Wax bullets are not normally lethal, and will not penetrate walls so they are safe to use indoors or in situations where live ammunition is dangerous.
K.I.T.T's Tranquillizer gun expels a dart at a target by means of compressed gas. Upon impact with the target, the inertial momentum of a ball bearing at the rear of the dart injects a heavy dose of barbiturate into the target, causing torpor and prostration within seconds.
