Microwave Cannon Crowd Dispersal Weapon Heats People Out of the Way

Heather Callaghan

This week, the US military proudly presented (publicly) for the first time, their newest non-lethal weapon to get rid of this pesky protester problem the military keeps running into when they invade other lands.

The Heat Ray or Microwave Cannon is formally and strangely called the “Active Denial System” (ADS) and its sole purpose is for crowd control.

The vehicle-mounted cannon combined with the power of electromagnetic radiation blasts a beam of heat that makes the target feel an intense waft of heat comparable to quickly opening an extremely hot oven, except reportedly with more pain. Unable to withstand the intensity and quickness of the heat, the beam makes people automatically run or jump out of the way.

From RT:
ADS fires a high-powered beam 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 at 2.45GHz, the millimeter waves excite the water and fat molecules in the body, instantly heating them via dielectric heating and causing intense pain. While microwaves will penetrate into human tissue about 17mm (0.67"), the millimeter waves used in ADS only penetrate the top layers of skin, with most of the energy being absorbed within 0.4 mm (1/64").

Video by USFORCESTV depicts testers getting an invisible waft of intense heat. Notice the girls giggling and squealing away from the pain? It's fun getting blasted by peace officers!


The DOD denies rumors that it spent $120 million on a mobile microwave ray. The Pentagon is reportedly set to create an airborne heat-ray companion possibly for use in knocking out enemy electronic instruments.

Some speculate the inspiration for the cannon came during a '90s US campaign in Somalia where soldiers felt threatened by gatherers with...sticks and stones. RT writes, “Some kind of weapon was needed to avoid victims among civilians and to protect soldiers at the same time. ”

The military looks at this cooked up invention as a win-win – lower injury risk than hosing crowds with pepper spray or rubber bullets. But the ray appears to have only been tested extensively at around 1,100 yards -- and does it account for those with pacemakers and other medical conditions affected by EMF? Don't worry, out of 11,000 people who actually agreed to be tested, only two received second-degree burns. It couldn't possibly suddenly turn lethal like those rubber bullets and tasers did.

While the demonstration and RT article did not outright say it would be used against American peaceful protesters, they're also not un-saying it.

How often do we use rubber bullets and pepper-spray abroad? With the undertones and the way the biological effects branch of the Air Force Research Laboratory is already trying to dispel any opposition to its health effects – it's likely that protesters here will be experience the heat wave soon.

This contraption, however, is really not meant to be a crowd pleaser.

While many will justify its use based on safety assurances, and others will argue against its use based on safety concerns, isn't that all really besides the point? Why is the military using heat cannons with the intent to disperse crowds? And the scary question – why is America getting so comfy with the idea?

The founding fathers weren't too keen on military practices mixing with those of the police. They would have plenty to say about turning military weaponry against their own, and for that matter, against people in foreign lands. Nor would they appreciate that the largest chunk of our burdensome taxes funding toys like heat cannons to disperse justifiably concerned citizens, here or abroad.

Maybe instead of spending millions of taxpayer dollars to create intimidating forceful crowd blasters, they should spend more time thinking about why people gather in the first place and redress those grievances. God forbid they should worry about actually protecting their brothers and sisters.

THIS IS A OVERALL HEAT AFFECT.SOMEONE SHOULD PUBLICISE THE TECH THAT IS SPECIFIC TO SELECTED INDIVIDUAL TISSUE. LEGS, FEET, MOUTH, PENIS, SCROTUM, FACE, RECTUM SOME OF INDUCED AFFECTS OF LIT MATCH QUALITY IN PIN POINT FASHION. FOR CROWD CONTROL, THE TECH I TALK ABOUT IS THE ONE THAT COUNTS THAT WON'T BE PUBLICISED. LOOK UP TETANIZING SAME TECH. IT'S NO FUN BEING RIPPED APART INTERNALLY. THEN HAVE OPERATION TO FIX IT. NEXT TIME YOU THINK YOUR RUNNING A NORMAL FEVER REMEMBER YOU WON'T BE IN A CROWD. WHAT IS THE DIFERENCE THEN ARTICLE ABOVE THE ONE TECH I TALK ABOUT IS FOR CONTROLING SICKNESS. TORTURE HAS A NEW NAME. DISBELIEVE 2 INDUCED HEART ATTACKS IS UP TO YOU.

One day they will do this and send a person brain commands, or are they doing this already? I am currently reading about the studies our Government has undergone for that purpose.

More joy toys for the sociopaths it would seem ('joy' for them, pain in the ass for everyone else). I can just imagine the freak piloting this thing with a sick grin on his (or her's) face as people start to run in pain and agony from the wave bombardment.

Just like the author states, the true purpose for these high tech torture devices is to discourage people from physically displaying their displeasure with the policies of government (foreign or domestic) through protests and peaceful assembly.

But, the good news is that the universe is all about balance, and just like the TSA goons that are developing cancer from their willingness to zap people with those x-ray scanners, there will be some sort of karmic consequence for the sickos that obey the orders to use these things on another human being.

You can count on that.

How is this humane?
to deter free speech?!

why are we even letting this happen at all?
e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e ?!

so basically what they're doing is pointing a microwave oven at people, and the 'heat' people feel is because they're just beginning to cook. that's why the heat. isn't that how microwave ovens work? this is NOT "crowd control"; this is NOT non-lethal; this is an idea straight out of a Nazi playbook.

what a bunch of cowardly f*cking scumbags. screw the government.

I know all of the 9/11 images on TV were computer graphics but maybe they used this kind of technology to bring down the buildings. Imagine it magnified by many factors.

Having said that, what if they would have put the same budget to build something that helped people? Why does every dollar have to go to figuring out ways to control or hurt people?

We can make this world something great. Its amazing what can be accomplished with technology when we find the right cause to apply it to.

Sounds to me that you better not look at it or you'll fry your corneas and be blind afterward !

Might we expect this idea to develop into miniature hand held rechargeable battery powered devices? Then citizen ingenuity will make them available on the internet, and with a bit of tinkering make them deadly and available?

DAN
AS I LAID LAST NIGHT IN BED BURNING MINUTE ENERGY WAS TRAVELING THREW HEAD TISSUE AN MOVING. BURNING WAS IN HEART AREA AS WELL, FUNCTIONS WERE CEASING. WAS WOKEN UP 3 TIMES LAST NIGHT. SLEEP DEPRIVATION IS HELL TO GO THREW. ON THE INTERNET IT IS SAID ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT IS WORSE THEN THE ATOM BOMB. JUST GOOGLE ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT. TRUER WORDS WERE NEVER SPOKEN. WHEN TECH COMES OUT PUBLICALLY IT MEANS THE TECH IS ACTUALLY 50 TO 70 YEARS AHEAD. WHAT IS CURRENTLY KNOWN. THE DAY BEFORE ABOVE TWICE THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE. THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU KNOW TO MUCH. THEY BLOCKED SOMETHING. BY TIGHTENING THEY BLOCKED TWO ARTERIES BEFORE. THEN HAD 2 HEART ATTACKS. ALOT OF GUNS HAVE BEEN BOUGHT THEIR OBSOLETE WHAT CAN BE DONE TO HANDS AN ARMS PEOPLE WILL NEVER USE THEM. THAT IS WITH THE NERVOUSE AND MUSCLE SYSTEM NOT THE HEAT AFFECT AS ABOVE ARTICLE. LABRAT1
