The high-impulse weapon system uses a shock mitigation technique developed initially for the space industry. It consists of a frictional damping element, which reduces the incredible recoil to one’s shoulder it would otherwise generate.
The weapon allows your shoulder to absorb shocks that would otherwise be associated with an 80-millimeter mortar round. When firing the weapon, though, you still have to keep 80 percent of your weight on your front foot or else you’ll be thrown backwards.
