     LICENSE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ANTON SIMSON, EESTI Engrg, LLC, POWAY, CA,
     LICENSEE & JOHN H. COVER, LICENSOR - under Pat. No. 5,078,117 (generally
     covering the use of compressed gas capsules that are easily discharged &
     the gas will propell projectiles, weights, contactors, nets, etc., in a
     non-firearm mode of operation).

     This Agreement specifically pertains to EESTI's manufacture of Taser-type
     cassettes designed to snap onto stun guns giving the stun gun owner the
     Taser stand-off range & effectiveness in stopping power over dangerous
     criminals.

     More specifically this License relates to J.H. Cover's License with Eastex
     Co., Yong Park, who imports & sells the Thunder Power - and other stun guns
     - which will be used in conjunction with the EESTI SGA Cassettes containing
     the SPOGC's.

     In return for this Exclusive License to EESTI, J.H. Cover will receive an
     Earned Royalty from Anton Simson, EESTI, of $0.25 - or 25(cents) @ for each
     SGA Cassette they Make & Sell.

     In summary, the Licensor, John H. Cover, hereby grants an Exclusive License
     under Patent #5,078,117 to Anton Simson, d.b.a. EESTI Engineering, LLC, to

Los Angeles, CA 90065          Power Stun Gun.

ADDENDUM TO THE LICENSE AGREEMENT signed by Yong Suk Park, d.b.a. Bestex Co.,
3/7/90 & John H. Cover, Licensor, on 2/19/90.

Licensor hereby grants an Exclusive License to distribute and sell the SGA
Taser Cassettes designed to "snap" onto the front of the Bestex Thunder Power
Stun Gun modified to function with the SGA -- which projects the high voltage
electric contactors at an attacker -- such that the user does not receive a
shock to this hand (insulation)

This License is under J.H. Cover's Patent #5,078,117 covering the
Self-Puncturing Compressed Gas Capsule. This technology permits the use of
compressed air to propell the contactors & is therefore not classified as a
Firearm. EESTI, Anton Simson, Poway, CA will make the SGA under my Patent
License & supply them to Bestex.

The Terms for Bestex's Exclusivity are: 1)$20,000 upfront ($10,000 upon
execution of the License -- 1st week of March, 1996 -- and $10,000 April 1,
1996), 2) Bestex's Minimum Royalty will be $2500/mos starting 4/2/96, and 3)
Bestex will pay J.H. Cover $2 Earned Royalty for each Thunder Power Stun Gun
sold(or any modification or substitution thereof that fits the SGA) and
25(cents) for each SGA Cassette sold.

It is important that Yong Park, Anton Simson & Jack Cover work as a team on
this program. There are decisions to be made such as the Packaging of the
Product -- the Thunder Power & (2) SGA cassettes in a box -- sales and
advertising strategies including the name of the Product. "Public Defender" and
ElectroStorm(stop rape & murder) are possibilities. An early meeting such as
the first week in December is suggested. Jack Cover will consult as needed
without compensation.

The signatures below constitute the legal acceptance of the two parties of the
above terms & conditions.

     L.   WHEREAS, JACK COVER and VIRGINIA COVER vigorously deny any and all
liability with respect to the allegations and the claims asserted in the
counterclaim filed by AIR TASER in the ARIZONA LITIGATION. JACK COVER
affirmatively asserts that on or prior to October 15, 1993, he disclosed the
terms of the TASERTRON license to AIR TASER, including the terms purporting to
grant exclusivity as to the use of the 132 Patent within certain markets and

     M.   WHEREAS, in February, 1995, TASERTRON filed an action against AIR
TASER in the Federal District Court for the Central District of California

Taser, Inc., case number ED CV 95-53 RT (JRX) ["CALIFORNIA LITIGATION"]
asserting an exclusive right to market devices utilizing the technology covered
by the 132 Patent within certain markets and geographical boundaries. In
September, 1995 the CALIFORNIA LITIGATION was settled and AIR TASER agreed,
inter alia, to refrain from selling the AIR TASER DEVICE to U.S. law enforcement
agencies for a specified period of time.

     N.   WHEREAS, all parties hereto desire to fully settle and compromise all
matters in controversy heretofore existing between them.

     O.   WHEREAS, all parties have examined the benefits to be obtained under
this Settlement Agreement and have considered the costs, risks and delays
associated with the continued prosecution of the claims asserted in the ARIZONA
LITIGATION. Each of the parties, having full knowledge of the contents hereof
and after obtaining the advice of counsel, believes that, in consideration of
all the circumstances and after significant investigation and settlement
negotiations between and among the parties, the settlement embodied in this
Settlement Agreement is fair, reasonable and in the best interests of all
parties concerned.

     NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing Recitals, the
representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in this
Settlement Agreement, the sum of One Dollar ($1.00) each to the other in hand
paid and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of
which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto represent, warrant, covenant
and agree as follows:

     1.   The foregoing Recitals and all Exhibits referred to herein and
attached hereto, are incorporated in this Settlement Agreement as if set forth
in full in the body hereof.

     2.   It is hereby stipulated and agreed that, subject only to the terms of
that certain Stipulation of Settlement ("STIPULATION") executed by and between
AIR TASER and Electronic Medical Research Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a/ Tasertron in
the CALIFORNIA LITIGATION, in its present form or as it may hereafter be
amended, the AIR TASER


                                      -3-
<PAGE>   19

LICENSE authorizing the manufacture, use and sale of devices covered by the 132
Patent and the 117 Patent is unrestricted as to any particular market, user,
geographical area, dimension or design. However, the AIR TASER LICENSE shall
not encompass applications of the technology covered by the 117 Patent other
than in conjunction with electronic devices. A copy of the STIPULATION is
attached hereto as Exhibit "C".

     3.  It is hereby stipulated and agreed that paragraph 6.2 of the AIR TASER
LICENSE is modified so that if, an any month, the minimum royalty exceeds the
earned royalty, that excess shall be applicable as a credit to AIR TASER in the
next calendar month in the following manner: if the earned royalty for the next
month exceeds the minimum royalty for that month, then the excess shall apply
to reduce the earned royalty dollar for dollar until that excess for the
previous month is used up. However, if all the excess is not used up in that
next month, then it shall no longer operate as a credit in the future. In no
event shall AIR TASER be thereby relieved of the obligation to pay the agreed
minimum royalty in any month.

     4.  AIR TASER agrees that the negative balance in JACK COVER's cumulative
royalty account existing as of the date of execution of this Settlement
Agreement, which negative balance constitutes a credit to AIR TASER against
future earned royalties, is hereby eliminated.

     5.  It is hereby stipulated and agreed that the period of exclusivity
relative to devices utilizing the technology covered by the 117 Patent and
meeting certain specified characteristics as provided in paragraph 4.2 of the
AIR TASER LICENSE has expired and that, subject to the provisions of paragraph
6 of this Settlement Agreement, JACK COVER is free to license others to utilize
the technology covered by the 117 Patent on a non-exclusive basis.

     6.  JACK COVER hereby agrees that he shall not on his own account, nor
shall he authorize in any future patent licenses he may grant to other
individuals or other entities, manufacture, use or sell or license for
manufacture, use or sale (a) any launchers which are compatible with the AIR
TASER cartridge model number 34200 or (b) cartridges which are compatible with
the AIR TASER power handle model number 34100. "Compatible" for these purposes
means a device which, without modification by the user, will operate with the
AIR TASER components [model numbers 34100 and 34200] to deliver an electric
shock to a target. AIR TASER will not knowingly and intentionally manufacture or
sell any devices [excluding model numbers 34100 and 34200] which are compatible
with any launchers or cartridges manufactured by other existing patent licenses
of JACK COVER. In any future patent licenses which JACK COVER may grant, and in
any amendments to any existing licenses which he may in the future enter into,
he shall include the following language:


                                      -4-

<PAGE>   20

          "This license does not allow the licensee to manufacture, use or sell
          (a) any launchers which are compatible with the AIR TASER cartridge
          model number 34200 or (b) any cartridges which are compatible with the
          AIR TASER power handle model number 34100. "Compatible for these
          purposes means a device which, without modification by the user, will
          operate with the AIR TASER components [model numbers 34100 and 34200]
          to deliver an electric shock to a target. Furthermore, licensee hereby
          acknowledges that it has had an opportunity to inspect or is otherwise
          familiar with the AIR TASER air cartridge and the AIR TASER power
          handle prior to execution of the license.

          In order to facilitate JACK COVER's compliance with this paragraph,
AIR TASER shall within ten (10) days following execution and delivery of this
Settlement Agreement, deliver three (3) inoperative power handles [model 34100]
and three (3) inoperative cartridges [model 34200] to JACK COVER.

     7.   It is hereby stipulated and agreed that the last sentence of paragraph
6.3 of the AIR TASER LICENSE shall be deleted and stricken from the AIR TASER
LICENSE, and the following sentence shall be inserted in its place:

          "If the DEFAULT is not cured by payment of this MINIMUM ROYALTY by
          cashier's check or money order on or before 5:00 P.M. local Arizona
          time of the tenth (10th) day following written notice by Licensor to
          Licensee of the facts constituting the alleged default, this licensing
          agreement shall terminate automatically without further notice."

     8.   It is hereby stipulated and agreed that the last sentence of
paragraph 6.4 of the AIR TASER LICENSE shall be deleted and stricken from the
AIR TASER LICENSE, and the following sentence shall be inserted in its place:

          "If the DEFAULT is not cured by payment of this EARNED ROYALTY by
          cashier's check or money order on or before 5:00 P.M. local Arizona
          time of the tenth (10th) day following written notice by Licensor to
          Licensee of the facts constituting the alleged default, this licensing
          agreement shall terminate automatically without further notice."



                                      -5-
<PAGE>   21

     9.  AIR TASER does not know of any reason why the 132 Patent or the 117
Patent should not continue in existence until the dates set forth in the AIR
TASER LICENSE. AIR TASER will not take, nor will it cause anyone else to take,
any action which would impair the validity of either patent and, if AIR TASER
shall in the future have any concern as to the early termination of either
patent, it will notify JACK COVER of the basis for its concern so that he might
take such action as he deems necessary to avoid such early termination.

     10.  It is hereby stipulated and agreed that upon expiration of the 132
Patent, AIR TASER's obligation to pay JACK COVER a $2.00 per unit earned
royalty for each unit which utilizes the power generation device and electric
wave form described in the 132 Patent shall be terminated, notwithstanding AIR
TASER's continued use of the technology covered by the 132 Patent.

     11.  It is hereby stipulated and agreed that upon expiration of the 117
Patent, AIR TASER's obligation to pay JACK COVER a $0.25 per unit earned
royalty for each device which utilizes compressed gasses to launch electrical
contactors from the power generator shall be terminated, notwithstanding AIR
TASER's continued use of the technology covered by the 117 Patent.

     12.  It is hereby stipulated and agreed that upon expiration of the 117
Patent, AIR TASER's obligation to make any further minimum royalty payments or
earned royalty payments, as those terms are used in paragraphs 6.1 and 6.2 of
the AIR TASER LICENSE, to JACK COVER shall be terminated, notwithstanding AIR
TASER's continued use of the technology covered by either or both the 117
Patent and/or the 132 Patent.

     13.  JACK COVER hereby represents and warrants that he is the sole owner
of the "Taser" registered trademark, Registration No. 1,235,685, and that of
those licensees of the "Taser" trademark whose licenses came into existence on
or prior to October 15, 1993, AIR TASER and Electronic Medical Research
Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a Tasertron are the only licensees currently using or
authorized to use the "Taser" trademark. JACK COVER hereby reaffirms his prior
agreement, as originally set forth in Article I, paragraph 3, of the EMPLOYMENT
AGREEMENT, that AIR TASER, as licensee, is authorized to utilize the "Taser"
trademark in conjunction with product marketing and other business functions
and that JACK COVER shall not license the use of the "Taser" trademark to any
individual or entity not licensed for such use prior to October 15, 1993. In
order to prevent abandonment of the "Taser" trademark, JACK COVER hereby agrees
that AIR TASER shall have the right, jointly with JACK COVER, to police and
protect the use of the "Taser" trademark by others, in his name or in the name
of AIR TASER, in a reasonable manner to maintain the quality of the mark and to
prevent the unauthorized use of the mark by third parties. However, other
patent licensees of JACK COVER may, with his prior


                                      -6-
<PAGE>   22

written consent, refer to the "Taser" device for comparative purposes only
[patent licensees not expressly licensed to use the "Taser" trademark on or
prior to October 15, 1993 may not claim that their device is a "Taser" or
incorporate the "Taser" trademark in their product name], provided that the
word "Taser" is designated as a registered trademark, that the patent licensee
includes a disclaimer that said patent licensee is not licensee of the "Taser"
trademark and that said disclaimer appears in the same context as the word
"Taser" in the same size typeface as the word "Taser", but in no event may the
word "Taser" appear in a typeface larger than 12 points. JACK COVER further
represents and warrants that attached hereto as Group Exhibit "D" is a full and
complete list of the names and current addresses of all licensees of the
"Taser" trademark together with the copies of the subject licenses and all
amendments thereto.

     14.  JACK COVER does hereby sell, transfer and assign to AIR TASER all
shares of AIR TASER stock acquired by him at any time [i.e., 50,000 shares]
free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances. JACK COVER agrees that
contemporaneously with the execution and delivery of this Settlement Agreement
he shall surrender said stock, properly endorsed, to AIR TASER.

     15.  JACK COVER hereby represents and warrants that Exhibit "E" attached
hereto is a full and complete list of the names and current addresses of all
past or present licensees of the 117 Patent and the 132 Patent together with
copies of the subject licenses and any and all amendments thereto.

     16.  JACK COVER hereby represents and warrants that, except for the
ARIZONA LITIGATION, there are no law suits pending or threatened and there are
no existing or potential causes of action involving the 117 Patent, the 132
Patent and/or the "Taser" trademark.

     17.  JACK COVER hereby reaffirms his prior agreement, as originally set
forth in Article I, paragraph 5, of the EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT that all technical
designs and intellectual property generated by JACK COVER during his work with
ATR TASER was work-made-for-hire, was, or upon request, will be assigned to AIR
TASER and is the exclusive property of AIR TASER. JACK COVER further agrees to
execute all documents and perform all acts necessary to enable AIR TASER to
acquire or perfect any and all rights, titles, patents, copyrights, interests
and other protection which may be available with regard to such technical
designs and intellectual properties. JACK COVER agrees that contemporaneously
with the execution and delivery of this Settlement Agreement he shall execute
and deliver to AIR TASER the Declaration for Patent Application with Power of
Attorney and the Assignment attached hereto as Exhibits "F" and "G",
respectively. AIR TASER warrants and agrees that the Declaration for Patent,
Exhibit "F", covers both a method of manufacturing compressed fluid containers
and a


                                      -7-

<PAGE>   23

double walled compressed gas cylinder, and that patent, should it be granted,
would not, to the best of its knowledge, replace or conflict with the 117
Patent, and even if the patent should be granted, it would not allow AIR TASER
to utilize the technology covered by the 117 patent without paying JACK COVER
the royalties required by the AIR TASER LICENSE. Attached hereto as Exhibit "H"
is a schedule of intellectual property generated by JACK COVER during his work
with AIR TASER which the parties agree was either work-made-for-hire or
assigned to AIR TASER and which is the exclusive property of AIR TASER.

     18.  JACK COVER hereby reaffirms his continuing contractual obligation not
to disclose confidential information of AIR TASER, as originally set forth in
Article I, paragraph 7, of the EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT. The term "confidential
information" shall mean any information or material which is proprietary to AIR
TASER, whether owned or developed by AIR TASER, which is not generally known
other than by AIR TASER, and which JACK COVER may have obtained through any
direct or indirect contact with AIR TASER. Confidential information includes,
without limitation, business records and plans, financial statements and
projections, marketing plans, manufacturing know-how, pricing structure, costs,
appraisals, customer lists, the identity of suppliers of AIR TASER whose
identities became known to JACK COVER as a result of his employment by AIR
TASER and other proprietary information which is designated as confidential.

          The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that damages at law may not
be a measurable or adequate remedy for a breach of JACK COVER's continuing
obligation not to disclose the confidential information of AIR TASER, and,
accordingly, consent to the entry by any court of competent jurisdiction in
Arizona, or, if jurisdiction is not appropriate in Arizona, such other court of
competent jurisdiction, of an order enjoining the violation of such agreement
should the requirements for an injunction be met and further agree that the
entry of such order would be an appropriate remedy for the breach of this
obligation.

     19.  JACK COVER and AIR TASER agree that contemporaneously with the
execution and delivery of this Settlement Agreement, they shall execute and
exchange Releases in the form attached hereto as Exhibits "I" and "J".

     20.  Except as otherwise provided herein and notwithstanding the execution
of the Releases executed and exchanged pursuant to paragraph 19 hereof, the
terms of the AIR TASER LICENSE, as modified by this Settlement Agreement,
including without limitation the terms governing the duration of the AIR TASER
LICENSE, the specified minimum royalty and the per unit earned royalties
applicable to both the 117 Patent and the 132 Patent, shall hereafter remain in
full force and effect.



                                      -8-

     21.  Within five (5) business days following the execution of this
Settlement Agreement by all parties hereto, JACK COVER and VIRGINIA COVER, by
and through their attorney of record, shall prepare and file with the Court
wherein the ARIZONA LITIGATION is now pending an appropriate Motion and Agreed
Order providing for the dismissal of the ARIZONA LITIGATION on its merits, with
prejudice and without costs or attorneys' fees, all matters in controversy
having been fully settled, compromised and adjourned.

     22.  VIRGINIA COVER hereby consents to each and every term and provision
of the Settlement Agreement as set forth herein and hereby sells, transfers and
assigns to AIR TASER any right, title and interest she may have in or to the
property hereby transferred by JACK COVER to AIR TASER.

     23.  The parties hereto acknowledge that it is their intent to consummate
this Settlement Agreement and agree to execute all documents and to perform all
acts reasonably necessary to effectuate and implement all terms and conditions
of this Settlement Agreement.

     24.  This Settlement Agreement shall be preserved as confidential by the
parties hereto. The parties hereto, and each of them, agree (i) to take all
precautions necessary to safeguard the information contained in this Settlement
Agreement and any and all information furnished in connection herewith from
disclosure to any person or entity other than employees, officers, directors and
agents (including legal counsel and financial advisors) and, in addition, those
individuals who otherwise normally have access to information of such nature
under the parties' established confidentiality procedures; (ii) not to use this
Settlement Agreement or any information contained herein or furnished in
connection herewith for any purpose other than to resolve the issues and
controversies as may exist between the parties. The parties hereto, and each of
them, further agree that if any of them are requested or required by law to
disclose the contents of this Settlement Agreement or any information contained
herein or furnished in connection herewith, the party so requested will provide
all other parties with prompt written notice of the request so that any party
may seek an appropriate protective order or consent to the waiver of compliance
with this confidentiality provision of the Settlement Agreement. If in the
absence of a protective order or such waiver, any party is, nonetheless,
compelled to disclose any or the contents of this Settlement Agreement to a
Court or other tribunal under circumstances where such party would be liable
for contempt or other penalty if disclosure is not made, said party shall
disclose to such Court or other tribunal only that limited portion of the
information which is legally required to be disclosed.
