Pentagon Develops Non-Lethal Energy Weapon : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

March 01, 2001

The Pentagon today revealed a weapon technology
that projects a high energy beam to stun,
incapacitate, disorient or stop, but not kill
enemies. The technology, called "Active Denial,"
seems like it's right out of Star Trek.

It uses a narrow beam of energy that heats up
the skin of a target, causing pain one might
experience when touching a light bulb that has
been left on for awhile.
