Laser Guns & Pain Rays

In the near future, the only protesting that will happen will be the people screaming at their TV’s. Current technology gives US acoustical cannon’s & pain beams mounted on Humvee turrets, and laser beam optical stun rifles.

LASER STUN RIFLES

“The US government has unveiled a “non-lethal” laser rifle designed to dazzle enemy personnel without causing them permanent harm. But the device will require close scrutiny to ensure compliance with a United Nations protocol on blinding laser weapons.

The Personnel Halting and Stimulation Response (PHASR) rifle was developed at the Air Force Research Laboratory in New Mexico, US, and two prototypes have been delivered to military bases in Texas and Virginia for further testing.


Personnel Halting and Stimulation Response (PHaSR)

The US Department of Defense (DoD) believes the weapon could be used, for example, to temporarily blind suspects who drive through a roadblock. However, the DoD has yet to reveal details of how the laser works and has yet to respond to New Scientist’s requests for further information.

Laser weapons capable of blinding enemies have been developed in the past but were banned under a 1995 UN convention called the Protocol on Blinding Laser Weapons. The wording of this protocol, however, does not prohibit lasers that temporarily dazzle a foe.

“In the past, the problem with lasers of this type has been that they often permanently blind human targets,” says Tobias Feakin, an expert at Bradford University’s Non-Lethal Weapons Research Project in the UK.

But he says newer systems may avoid this problem by using less powerful laser beams. “This new wave of low-intensity laser weapons do not have a permanently damaging effect, apparently,” he told New Scientist.

Several laboratories across the world are working on such weapons. But even low power laser systems can cause eye damage if they are used at close quarters or for extended periods.

The PHaSR may attempt to address safety concerns by automatically sensing its distance from a target. The limited information released by the DoD includes mention of an “eye-safe range finder”, which may mean the laser’s power is adjusted depending on the distance to the target. The system is also said to incorporate a “two wavelength laser system”, which may be designed to counter goggles that can filter out certain wavelengths of laser light.

Neil Davison, another expert at Bradford University, says the situation in Iraq may encourage the US to push for the development of less-than-lethal laser weapons. “They already use bright white lights at vehicle checkpoints in Iraq to dazzle drivers who are approaching too fast,” he says.

Several commercial systems capable of temporarily dazzling a target exist. LE Systems, based in Connecticut, US, for example, makes the Laser Dazzler, which resembles an ordinary torch and emits a low power pulsing green laser light. The company says this device has been tested extensively and been shown to cause no lasting eye damage.

The possibility of causing lasting eye damage can be reduced by diffusing the laser beam or rapidly moving it across the target with a series of mirrors.

And the same US military research lab developed another laser weapon more than a decade ago, called the Sabre 203. This device attached beneath the barrel of a normal rifle and emitted a low-power laser light over a range of 300 metres. It was used by US forces in Somalia in 1995 but later shelved because of concerns over safety and effectiveness.”

The Sound of Force Protection®

The Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) is a breakthrough long-range hailing and warning device designed to communicate with authority, affect behavior and determine intent. It has the unique ability of providing amazing voice and tone clarity in a 15° – 30° beam at distances over 300 meters using only two amps of power. In addition to microphone input, LRAD can communicate in various languages via the built in MP3 player or Phraselator.

As a method for safely addressing the difficult missions of waterside force protection against small boats, crowd control, area denial of personnel, clearing buildings and visit board search and seizure operations, LRAD puts distance between a potential threat and our troops to save lives on both sides of the device. LRAD can also be configured to provide live, continuously recorded video and audio from a remotely controlled ruggedized pan, tilt and zoom mount for high value infrastructure “first responder” capability.

Features:

  • Clear and intelligible voice communications
  • Attention-getting and highly irritating warning tone for behavior modification
  • All-weather operation
  • Minimal power requirements
  • Flexible audio input/user interface
  • Available pan/tilt remote operation

Supported Missions:

  • Waterside Force Protection
  • Crowd and riot control
  • Area denial of personnel
  • Building clearing operations
  • Psychological operations
  • Visit board search and seizure
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection
  • Ground/mechanized offense/defense operations


There is one additional product in the LRAD family that is currently in development:

ERAD— Extended Range Acoustic Device, supports very long distance communications for the critical infrastructure and border AT/FP security market.

    You’ll encounter a change in your lifestyle after undergoing this bariatric surgery. Once approved by the FDA, an insured teen will pay only $2,000 to $4,000 for the surgery. In this procedure, the digestive tract is shortened.

  9. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

    to the dangerous gastric band to solve an overweight problem.
    Sucrose has an awful lot more energy provision than
    sugar alcohols. The weight loss also reduces their risk for several diseases.

  12. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual effort
    to create a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a
    whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  24. Even though they might do this one time for the wedding, I think there can be addictive
    qualities to these diets, and I think that someone
    might continue to do something like this. Once approved by the FDA, an insured teen
    will pay only $2,000 to $4,000 for the surgery.
    t take it thinly because it is actually costly surgery
    and not getting the right outcome may let down you.

    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyways, very good blog!

  31. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let
    me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The
    issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

  32. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  33. mobile games says:

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get
    that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
