Army Orders Pain Ray Trucks; New Report Shows ‘Potential for Death’ | Danger Room from Wired.com

After years of testing, the Active Denial System — the pain ray which drives off rioters with a microwave-like beam — could finally have its day. The Army is buying five of the truck-mounted systems for $25 million.

Армия США закупила пять микроволновых излучателей для разгона толпы. Ширина луча — 2 м, дальность — 250 м. «Нелетальное», ага. Только «Because the beam of diameter 2 m and above is wider than human size, such burns would occur over considerable parts of the body, up to 50% of its surface. Second- and third-degree burns covering more than 20% of the body surface are potentially life-threatening – due to toxic tissue-decay products and increased sensitivity to infection – and require intensive care in a specialized unit. Without a technical device that reliably prevents re-triggering on the same target subject, the ADS has a potential to produce permanent injury or death».
Помните, Сикорски в «Обитаемом острове» укорял Максима, подорвавшего центр управления башнями, что он забыл о передвижных излучателях.
Блин, я не думал, что буду жить в этом будущем.
