THE HEAT RAY

Tests of a weapon designed to heat people’s skin using a beam similar to a microwave pulse have shown that it can disperse crowds.

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), based in New Mexico have allegedly finished testing the system, known rather worryingly as the ‘Heat Ray,’ on human volunteers.

The US Air Force now wants to use this ‘Active Denial Technology (ADT)’, which it says is ‘non-lethal’, for peacekeeping or riot control use only at “a relatively long range” – possibly using low-flying drone aircraft.

ADT uses a 2 Metre direct-able dish to create a narrow microwave beam that can be scanned across a crowd or even aimed at specific individuals.

The AFRL has used infrared imaging to analyse the effects on the volunteers’ bodies.

They confidently state that the 3-millimetre wavelength radiation penetrates ‘only 0.3 millimetres into the skin’, which rapidly heats the surface above the 45 °C pain threshold.

At 50 °C, the human body’s involuntary pain reflex makes people pull away automatically after less than a second of exposure – it has been reported to feel similar to pressing your skin against a hot light bulb.

“You would have to stay in the beam for 250 seconds before it burnt the skin,” the scientists say, giving “ample margin between intolerable pain and causing a burn”.

Understandably, critics have questioned the AFRL’s claims that the weapon’s undisclosed exposure levels are safe.

John Pike of think tank Globalsecurity.org fears that the beam power needed to scatter crowds, may be too close to the level that would injure them.

Air Force scientists (no surprise there) helped set the present skin safety threshold of 10 milliwatts per square centimetre in the early 1990s, when little comparative data was available, said Louis Slesin, editor of Microwave News.

That limit covers exposure to steady fields for several minutes to an hour – but heating a layer of skin 0.3 mm thick to 50 °C in just one second requires much higher power and may pose risks to the cornea, which is more sensitive than skin.

A study published in the journal Health Physics has shown that exposure to 2 watts per square centimetre for three seconds irreparably damaged the corneas of the rhesus monkeys it was tested on.

On August 20, 2010, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department announced it’s intent to use this technology on prisoners in the Pitchess Detention Centre, and Russia are allegedly developing their very own version.

  1. Why Can’t We See? : The West is transfixed, stunned by its own toxic cocktail of lies. That we will wake up is inevitable. The danger is that if we remain asleep too long, the world may already be burning by the time we look out the window.

    “Why Russia?
    There are a number of strategic reasons why India chose Russia. Experts in New Delhi believe an over dependence on the US for nuclear energy might lead to interference and dominance by the latter. Some Indian scientists are believed to have opposed the Indo-US nuclear deal, fearing it might lead to US dominance in India’s nuclear power plants.”

  3. And now a more personal note.

    Your site is one that I download to it’s own folder.

    But I realised that I’d been posting links so much that I hadn’t downloaded & saved.

    So I went back & began saving & I came across a comment from Jane,suggesting I should post on your forum.

    Now yes,except that I believe that most of the links I post are concerned NOT with discussion matters,but with matters that are happening AT THIS MOMENT in the most powerful country on earth & that most British bloggers are ruminating on matters which are of great importance in Britain or Europe,but that what is happening in the US is totally outside their knowledge or background.

    This means that this site is the best informed British (Sorry,WELSH) site on the future of martial law, Fema camps,0.4 hollow-point ammunition & so many other things.& that IS important,because when America sneezes, we all get flu.

    So I can come onto the forum,but I feel the links I post do give some warning to those who come here of what may be in store for we unarmed & helpless selves.

  4. It would appear that the Americans have been testing this kind of weapon – or something similar – for some time now…..
