Active Denial System
Apparently the military has developed a weapon that uses radio waves to vibrate the water molecules in the skin, causing a heat sensation. I could see this being used for crowd control situations since it’s non-lethal. Not sure how I feel about it. I mean, it’s kind of creepy/futuristic..the “pain ray”. They said it could be in Iraq by the end of next year. I don’t think anybody wants to think about “Iraq” and “end of next year”.
