'Active Denial Technology is a breakthrough non-lethal technology that uses millimeter-wave electromagnetic energy to stop, deter and turn back an
advancing adversary from relatively long range. It is expected to save countless lives by providing a way to stop individuals without causing injury,
before a deadly confrontation develops.
The technology was developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate. Approximately
$40 million has been spent on this technology over the past ten years.'
'This non-lethal technology was developed in response to Department of Defense needs for field commanders to have options short of the use of deadly
force. Non-lethal technologies can be used for protection of Defense resources, peacekeeping, humanitarian missions and other situations in which the
use of lethal force is undesirable.'
'Active Denial Technology uses a transmitter to send a narrow beam of energy towards an identified subject. Traveling at the speed of light, the
energy reaches the subject and penetrates less than 1/64 of an inch into the skin, quickly heating up the skin's surface. Within seconds, an
individual feels an intense heating sensation that stops when the transmitter is shut off or when the individual moves out of the beam.'
Well, it's not new for me. When I was FCO I did this with an Hi-Power Radar ( illumination air targets purpose ).But in fact, I was able to "
illuminate" everything, even peoples. Of course, it was a High Power mico-wave beam, so it was very dangerous for the " illimunated " peoples. I
have been beamed myself and it's not a very funny feeling !
I heard the aegis radars can fry electronics with about 4 million watts of energy within 50 miles ( 80km ) as well.
We can do a lot of things with these MW beam. When I told you about my FCO service, I forgot to tell you that this HP radar was an old one ( almost 20
years ), and I was FCO there is 17 years ago. 20 + 17 = 37 years !
