The ADS works by firing a high-powered beam of electromagnetic radiation in the form of high-frequency millimeter waves at 95 GHz (a wavelength of 3.2 mm). Similar to the same way that a microwave oven heats food, the millimeter waves excite the water and fat molecules in the body, instantly heating it and causing intense pain. (Note that while microwaves will penetrate human tissue and remove the water to "cook" the flesh, the millimeter waves used in ADS are blocked by cell density and only penetrate the top layers of skin, so it will not damage human flesh.)

I heard through the grapevine these systems will (probably are already) be used to secure certain restricted areas from intrusion. They basically leave the units on and create an invisible perimeter that cannot be crossed. Since these are non-lethal weapons I don't believe they need to advertise the fact they are in use either. I can't reveal my source but he has no reason to lie to me and would probably never talk to me again if he saw this post.
If you're looking for a "safe room", just put tight mesh aluminum screen (like insect screen for doors/windows) all along the floor, walls, ceiling, and door. Make sure all sections are connected to make an EMP-proof room. Ground the whole assembly to an earth ground outside via a wire.
If you think this won't work, take a battery radio inside the finished room and shut the door. You won't receive ANY radio signals.
Remember, this must be the smallest mesh you can find. Microwave lengths are very small. The radio wavelength of services like Directv or Dish (microwave frequencies) are on the order of a teardrop in size. That is why rain affects the signal so much.
