California rolls out heat cannon torture weapon Active Denial System, "When space age death rays are outlawed only outlaws will have space age death rays"
Let's explain how the mass torture weapon deployment rollout program works in the global scientific dictatorship. First the weapons are used on brown people in the field by the military, then on military prisoners, then on domestic prisoners. Then on protesters, then on random people. This is all part of a psychological conditioning process, intended in part to induce traumatic conditions in protesters & others. The good news is that when they bring this microwave cannon to the 2012 Democratic & Republican conventions, it can be defeated by tinfoil.
Here was the 60 Minutes segment earlier - *surprise* now it's in prisons. Your insane federal grant programs at work.
L.A. jail tests 'intolerable heat' beam on brawling inmates – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs. Great comment that "When space age death rays are outlawed only outlaws will have space age death rays" on this thread. Also something like a microwave generator w. battery pack could probably work at close ranges.
Officials at a Los Angeles County jail plan to test out an invisible heat-beam weapon originally developed by the military as a way to subdue brawling inmates by making them feel "intolerable heat."
The technology, called an Assault Intervention Device, is a non lethal-weapon developed by Raytheon Company. It originally was scaled down for use at the jail.
The device "emits a focused beam of wave energy that travels at the speed of light and produces an intolerable heating sensation that causes targeted individuals to flee. The sensation immediately ceases when the targeted individual moves away from the beam," according to Raytheon's website.
Deputies have tested the device, which is controlled by a jail officer using a joystick.
"We believe that technology can help solve problems facing the corrections community, including addressing issues of inmate violence," Sheriff Lee Baca said during a news conference. "The Assault Intervention Device appears uniquely suited to address some of the more difficult inmate violence issues without the drawbacks of tools currently available to us."
"This device will allow us to quickly intervene without having to enter the area and without incapacitating or injuring either combatant," Baca added.
Officials say they hope the device can help quell inmate assaults and reduce prison violence. Its use will be monitored by the U.S. Department of Justice's National Institute of Justice and Pennsylvania State University.
The device was installed and is being tested at Pitchess Detention Center at the L.A. County jail in Castaic, California.
That jail was the site of a 200-inmate brawl this weekend in which inmates threw rocks and debris at officers, who were attempting to stop them from entering a restricted area, according to CNN affiliate KTLA.
KTLA reported the brawl lasted for an hour before tear gas and non-lethal weapons were used. CNN is awaiting comment on whether the new Assault Intervention Device was employed during the brawl.
Active Denial is a revolutionary non-lethal protection system that employs millimeter wave technology to repel individuals without causing injury. The system provides a zone of protection that saves lives, protects assets and minimizes collateral damage. Active Denial emits a focused beam of wave energy that travels at the speed of light and produces an intolerable heating sensation that causes targeted individuals to flee. The sensation immediately ceases when the targeted individual moves away from the beam.
Raytheon has produced and delivered three Active Denial Systems to the U.S. Air Force customer. Raytheon has also built one Silent Guardian™ system that is roughly 1/3 the size and power of the other Active Denial Systems.
Active Denial and Silent Guardian are part of a family of Directed Energy solutions produced by Raytheon. Those solutions include the Vigilant Eagle Airport Protection System, Laser Area Defense System and Direct Infrared Counter Measure Systems.
Active Denial System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Active Denial System (ADS) is a less-lethal, directed-energy weapon developed by the U.S. military.It is a strong millimeter-wave transmitter primarily used for crowd control (the "goodbye effect"). Some ADS such as HPEM ADS are also used to disable vehicles. Informally, the weapon is also called heat ray. Raytheon is currently marketing a reduced-range version of this technology. The ADS was deployed in 2010 with the United States military in Afghanistan, but was withdrawn without seeing combat.
