The object of the Pulsed Energy Projectile (PEP) program is to develop and demonstrate the technology necessary to produce a counter personnel non-lethal directed energy weapon providing controllable bio-effects to deter, disable, and distract individuals.
The device directs an invisible induced plasma pulse at a target that will create a flash-bang near the intended target.
This counterpersonnel capability projects a beam that creates a plasma pulse at the target. When the plasma pulse strikes an individual, it results in a flash-bang effect that startles and distracts, and it also has a kinetic effect on the individual's nerve sensors.
At different power levels, those expanding plasmas could deliver a harmless warning, stun the target, or disable them - all with pinpoint laser precision from a mile away.

I´m wrong. The device I meant is to be found and described in Police State III by Alex Jones, the one you mean is here (including pictures).
Edit: found it. The one I saw was most likely the L.R.A.D. Long Range Acoustic Device. Now on a street near you.
