Wired News: Say Hello to the Goodbye Weapon
Its OK, they said its not lethal:
According to documents obtained for Wired News under federal sunshine laws, the Air Force’s Active Denial System, or ADS, has been certified safe after lengthy tests by military scientists in the lab and in war games.The ADS shoots a beam of millimeters waves, which are longer in wavelength than x-rays but shorter than microwaves — 94 GHz (= 3 mm wavelength) compared to 2.45 GHz (= 12 cm wavelength) in a standard microwave oven.
NOTE: 2.45GHz is also what your cell phone uses, along with like a billion other devices we all use today. The same goes for WiFi as well. Back to you Wired:
The longer waves are thought to limit the effects of the radiation. If used properly, ADS will produce no lasting adverse affects, the military argues.
Apparently you just get a little cooked (litterally) and then you run away cause it hurts so bad you want to shit yourself just to take your mind off the pain. But its non-lethal, so its OK. If used properly…
You realize the brown shirts will be using this on US citizens if we don’t get Bush out of office soon right? Right?? I mean next to being tasered, being microwaved in a crowd is one of those things I NEVER want to experience.
NOTE: All politics aside, I still really want one of these for christmas!!
