Oh those silly CBS reporters. It's all fun and games right!!!! I hate these people and the methods they use to make these horrible weapons of cruelty acceptable. He acts like a fool. No real reporting here. How about who they will use this on?

Why cant they even do one thing that is actually constructive? Why do they even invent such things?

You have to think about what all this mean from a philosophical perspective: Why would you need to disperse crowds in the first place? This is a tool only good for Tyranny, the fact that it is now being produced in the States proves how bad things are becoming.

You know this isn't nonlethal at all. It is a microwave gun and it doesn't just give the sensation of heat - it actually microwaves you from the inside out. If you are incapacitated and can't move away within 5 seconds what happens to you? Do you fry?

Unfortunately, the crew forgot to change the settings. When the system was fired, "Red Forces Role Player P3 immediately knew that he had received a stronger than usual shot from the ADS; he gave the quit signal and left the field." The quit signal, raising one hand, has been used throughout Active Denial trials to indicate that a subject wishes to end testing.

The description of the injuries has been censored from the report: all we can see is that they are covered by 11 numbered points. An Air Force statement says: "the injury was classified as a second degree burn," a type characterised by blistering. Local newspapers reported that the airman suffered burns on both legs and spent two days in the Joseph M Still Burn Centre in Augusta, Georgia. The official report puts the injury cost at $17,748.

Clearly the safeguards do not prevent operator error. "This document confirms my analysis that the intensity and dose to the target subjects is left to the discretion of the operator," says Dr Altmann. "Not only can he or she re-trigger on the same person without giving appropriate cooling time, but also the strength of the beam and duration can be changed during action. Both lead to the possibility of second- and third-degree burn injury, which becomes life-threatening if more than 20% to 50% of body surface is affected."

Heat Ray and Airport Scanner uses same technology!

Imagine the scenario. A passenger casually walks through Airport Security and is scanned with the new Millimetre Wave technology that allows the guards to see through their clothes.



Now imagine that this passenger has inadvertently carried some nail clippers in their pocket. The scanner detects that the passenger has "prohibited item" and immediately increases the Millimetre Wave output causing excruciating pain. The passenger writhing on the ground can then be dealt with "properly" by security staff.

Sound a bit outlandish? Well the new technology that  is going to be used to scan through our clothes at Airports is the very same technology used in those Heat Ray cannons that we have all heard about and seen on YouTube.

US unveils 'heat gun'

By Duncan Hooper
Last Updated: 2:28am GMT 26/01/2007

The US military has unveiled a "heat gun" designed to inflict an intense burning sensation on its target without causing lasting harm.


The weapon is mounted on a humvee

The so-called Active Denial System, which should be ready for deployment in 2010, is designed to disperse crowds or force enemy soldiers to surrender. It can be fired from the back of a humvee and, at over 500 yards, its range is far greater than the rubber bullets used in riot control today.

Millimetre waves fired from the gun penetrate the outer layers of skin just far enough to cause pain, but the burning feeling disappears as soon as the target moves out of the line of fire. Even thick clothing is no protection against the device, though the rays can't travel through walls.

The weapon was yesterday demonstrated on a group of soldiers and reporters at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia, where it has been undergoing operational tests.

if they did not send it to iraq immidiately, troops
would die, the war would be lost, etc. howso? most

Homeland Ministry Plans Raytheon “Ray Guns” at Airports

Homeland Ministry Plans Raytheon “Ray Guns” at Airports
http://www.infowars.com/?p=1310
Kurt Nimmo Truth News April 4, 2008


The DHS, affectionately called the “Ministry” here because it resembles something out of Orwell’s famous novel, wants to fit airports with ray guns. I kid you not. “The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will consider fitting high-power microwave electropulse rayguns at US airports, in order to defend against the threat of terrorists firing portable anti-aircraft missiles at airliners,” reports Lewis Page for The Register. “American defense heavyweight Raytheon would partner with Israel’s Rafael and Kongsberg of Norway to provide the technology, according to a report in Flight International. The proposed kit is known as ‘Vigilant Eagle’, and is competing for DHS securo-dollars with defensive systems that could be fitted to the airliners themselves — for instance BAE Systems’ JetEye.”

Okay, tell me this does not sound like another “defense industry” scam, yet another scheme to make billions of dollars. Sure, there is the possibility somebody with a rocket launcher may take out an airliner. But if al-Qaeda hates our freedom, why haven’t they done this already? Is al-Qaeda conducting a war against the Great Satan, one with battles strung over decades? At this rate, it will take a thousand years to install the Great Caliph/Khalifah.

In fact, since 9/11, there has not been one single solitary attack against the Great Satan. Some will proudly state this is because of our vigilance and determination. It’s because Congress passed the Patriot Act and other Constitution bashing legislation and no shortage of presidential directives. Occasionally we get treated to a shoddily rigged case, such as the street kids in Miami who colluded with al-Qaeda — that is, an FBI informant — or the kids in Canada who had the government deliver a truckload of fertilizer, passing it off as a dangerous explosive. And then there was the patently absurd airliner liquid fiasco, when we were told miscreants would mix up explosives in the bathroom of an aloft airliner. However, my favorite is the Fort Dix pizza killers, Muslims who were going to deliver death instead of hand-tossed pies.

Now we’re going to get ray guns at the airport. “Vigilant Eagle, unlike its rivals, would be sited at the airport. Light, portable anti-aircraft missiles of the type used by terrorists/insurgents lack the ability to hit a jet at cruising altitude, so such attacks would need to be mounted close to takeoff or landing,” Page continues. “Vigilant Eagle would detect any missiles fired using a network of infrared cameras to pick out the hot rocket exhaust plume. The system would then focus an intense microwave beam on the flying weapon, generated by a so-called Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) of the type used in the latest fighter radars.”

Man, what a deal for Raytheon. How many airports in this country? Do the math. Cha-cha-ching!

In fact, to simply roll this system out and test it for the Ministry, Raytheon wants a cool $10 million. It used to be a company built something, tested it, and showed it off to a prospective customer in anticipation of selling it. But that was before the “defense industry” (defense against illusory enemies and manufactured Goldsteins) captured a big chunk of the government, something Eisenhower warned about as he left office.

Get ready for airports to resemble firebases. Of course, this wonderful technology you are going seriously in debt to pay for will never be used because there are no terrorists with rocket launchers sitting at the end of runways. Maybe a demented pizza guy waving a Koran but not a Muji with a Stinger. Naturally, in a few years, Raytheon will come up with Vigilant Eagle II and we’ll have to pay millions to see how it works and billions to have it installed.

It’s a sweetheart deal for the death merchants. But then that’s why the Ministry was created in the first place — to allow death merchants and “security” corporations to eat at the public trough.

------------------------------------
For those of you unfamiliar with Raytheon's Ray Gun, it is a torture device.  The only purpose of the device is to torture people.  There is absolutely no other purpose.  It causes immesurable pain prior to killing the victim.  When a victim is restrained, they will be tortured to death by the device unless the device is turned off.  The ASPCA and PETA would never allow the manufacturing of such a device to be used on animals, but they are silent when it comes to using this torture device on humans.

Weaponizing the Pentagon's cyborg insects

 Imagine a world in which any insect fluttering past your window may be a remote-controlled spy.


By Nick Turse

A futuristic nightmare that just might come true

Biological weapons delivered by cyborg insects. It sounds like a nightmare scenario straight out of the wilder realms of science fiction, but it could be a reality, if a current Pentagon project comes to fruition.

Right now, researchers are already growing insects with electronics inside them. They're creating cyborg moths and flying beetles that can be remotely controlled. One day, the U.S. military may field squadrons of winged insect/machine hybrids with on-board audio, video or chemical sensors. These cyborg insects could conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions on distant battlefields, in far-off caves, or maybe even in cities closer to home, and transmit detailed data back to their handlers at U.S. military bases.

Today, many people fear U.S. government surveillance of email and cell phone communications. With this program, the Pentagon aims to exponentially increase the paranoia. Imagine a world in which any insect fluttering past your window may be a remote-controlled spy, packed with surveillance equipment. Even more frightening is the prospect that such creatures could be weaponized, and the possibility, according to one scientist intimately familiar with the project, that these cyborg insects might be armed with "bio weapons."

For the past 50 years, work by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) -- the Pentagon's blue skies research outfit -- has led to some of the most lethal weaponry in the U.S. arsenal: from Hellfire-missile-equipped Predator drones and stealth fighters and bombers to Tomahawk cruise missiles and Javelin portable "fire and forget" guided missiles.

For the last several years, DARPA has funneled significant sums of money into a very different kind of guided missile project, its Hybrid Insect MEMS (HI-MEMS) program. This project is, according to DARPA, "aimed at developing tightly coupled machine-insect interfaces by placing micro-mechanical systems [MEMS] inside the insects during the early stages of metamorphosis."

Put simply, the creation of cyborg insects: part bug, part bot.

Bugs, bots, borgs and bio-weapons
This past August, at DARPA's annual symposium -- DARPATech -- HI-MEMS program manager Amit Lal, an associate professor on leave from Cornell University, explained that his project aims to transform "insects into unmanned air-vehicles."

He described the research this way: "[T]he HI-MEMS program seeks to grow MEMS and electronics inside the insect pupae. The new tissue forms around the insertions, making the bio-electronic interface long-lasting and reliable."

In other words, micro-electronics are inserted at the pupal stage of metamorphosis so that they can be integrated into the insects' bodies as they develop, creating living robots that can be remotely controlled after the insect emerges from its cocoon.

According to the latest reports, work on this project is progressing at a rapid pace. In a recent phone interview, DARPA spokesperson Jan Walker said, "We're focused on determining what the best kinds of MEMS systems are; what the best MEMS system would be for embedding; what the best time is for embedding."

This month, Rob Coppinger, writing for the aerospace trade publication Flight International, reported on new advances announced at the "1st U.S.-Asian Assessment and Demonstration of Micro-Aerial and Unmanned Ground Vehicle Technology" -- a Pentagon-sponsored conference. "In the latest work," he noted, "a Manduca moth had its thorax truncated to reduce its mass and had a MEMS component added where abdominal segments would have been, during the larval stage."

But, as he pointed out, Robert Michelson, a principal research engineer, emeritus at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, laid out "on behalf of DARPA" some of the obstacles that remain. Among them were short insect life-spans and the current inability to create these cyborgs outside specialized labs.

DARPA's professed long-term goal for the HI-MEMS program is the creation of "insect cyborgs" capable of carrying "one or more sensors, such as a microphone or a gas sensor, to relay back information gathered from the target destination" -- in other words, the creation of military micro-surveillance systems.

In a recent email interview, Michelson -- who has previously worked on numerous military projects, including DARPA's "effort to develop an ‘Entomopter' (mechanical insect-like multimode aerial robot)" -- described the types of sensor packages envisioned, but only in a minimalist fashion, as a "[w]ide array of active and passive devices."

However in "Insect Cyborgs: A New Frontier in Flight Control Systems," a 2007 article in the academic journal Proceedings of SPIE, Cornell researchers noted that cyborg insects could be used as "autonomous surveillance and reconnaissance vehicles" with on-board "[ s]ensory systems such as video and chemical."

Surveillance applications, however, may only be the beginning. Last year, Jonathan Richards, reporting for The Times, raised the specter of the weaponization of cyborg insects in the not-too-distant future. As he pointed out, Rodney Brooks, the director of the computer science and artificial intelligence lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, indicated that the Pentagon is striving toward a major expansion in the use of non-traditional air power -- like unmanned aerial vehicles and cyborg insects -- in the years ahead.

"There's no doubt their things will become weaponized," he explained, "so the question [is]: should they [be] given targeting authority?" Brooks went on to assert, according to The Times, that it might be time to consider rewriting international law to take the future weaponization of such "devices" into account.

But how would one weaponize a cyborg insect? On this subject, Robert Michelson was blunt: "Bio weapons."

Cyborg ethics
Michelson wouldn't elaborate further, but any program using bio-weapons would immediately raise major legal and ethical questions. The 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention outlawed the manufacture and possession of bio-weapons, of "[m]icrobial or other biological agents, or toxins whatever their origin… that have no justification for prophylactic, protective or other peaceful purposes" and of "[w]eapons, equipment or means of delivery designed to use such agents or toxins for hostile purposes or in armed conflict."

In fact, not only did President George W. Bush claim that Iraq's supposed production and possession of biological weapons was a justification for an invasion of that nation, but he had previously stated, "All civilized nations reject as intolerable the use of disease and biological weapons as instruments of war and terror."

Reached for comment, however, DARPA's Jan Walker insisted that her agency's focus was only on "fundamental research" when it came to cyborg insects. Although the focus of her agency is, in fact, distinctly on the future -- the technology of tomorrow -- she refused to look down the road when it came to weaponizing insect cyborgs or arming them with bio-weapons. "I can't speculate on the future," was all she would say.

Michelson is perfectly willing to look into future, especially on matters of cyborg insect surveillance, but on the horizon for him are technical issues when it comes to the military use of bug bots. "Surveillance goes on anyway by other means," he explained, "so a new method is not the issue. If there are ethical or legal issues, they are ones of 'surveillance,' not of the 'surveillance platform.'"

Peter Eckersley, a staff technologist for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights and civil liberties group, sees that same future in a different light. Cyborg insects, he says, are an order of magnitude away from today's more standard surveillance technologies like closed circuit television.

"CCTV is mostly deployed in public and in privately owned public spaces. An insect could easily fly into your garden or sit outside your bedroom window," he explained. "To make matters worse, you'd have no idea these devices were there. A CCTV camera is usually an easily recognizable device. Robotic surveillance insects might be harder to spot. And having to spot them wouldn't necessarily be good for our mental health."

Does Michelson see any ethical or legal dilemmas resulting from the future use of weaponized cyborg insects? "No, not unless they could breed new cyborg insects, which is not possible," he explained. "Genetic engineering will be the ethical and legal battleground, not cybernetics."

Battle beetles and hawkish hawkmoths
Weaponized or not, moths are hardly the only cyborg insects that may fly, creep, or crawl into the military's future arsenal. Scientists from Arizona State University and elsewhere, working under a grant from the Office of Naval Research and DARPA, "are rearing beetle species at various oxygen levels to attempt to produce beetles with greater-than-normal size and payload capacity."

Earlier this year, some of the same scientists published an article on their DARPA-funded research titled "A Cyborg Beetle: Insect Flight Control Through an Implantable, Tetherless Microsystem." They explained that, by implanting "multiple inserted neural and muscular stimulators, a visual stimulator, a polyimide assembly and a microcontroller" in a 2 centimeter long, 1-2 gram green June beetle, they were "capable of modulating [the insect's] flight starts, stops, throttle/lift, and turning." They could, that is, drive an actual beetle.

However, unlike the June bug you might find on a porch screen or in a garden, these sported on-board electronics powered by cochlear implant batteries.

DARPA-funded HI-MEMS research has also been undertaken at other institutions across the country and around the world. For example, in 2006, researchers at Cornell, in conjunction with scientists at Pennsylvania State University and the Universidad de Valparaiso, Chile, received an $8.4 million DARPA grant for work on "Insect Cyborg Sentinels."

According to a recent article in New Scientist, a team led by one of the primary investigators on that grant, David Stern, screened a series of video clips at a recent conference in Tucson, Arizona demonstrating their ability to control tethered tobacco hawkmoths through "flexible plastic probes" implanted during the pupal stage. Simply stated, the researchers were able to remotely control the moths-on-a-leash, manipulating the cyborg creatures' wing speed and direction.

Robo-bugs
Cyborg insects are only the latest additions to the U.S. military's menagerie. As defense tech-expert Noah Shachtman of Wired magazine's Danger Room blog has reported, DARPA projects have equipped rats with electronic equipment and remotely controlled sharks, while the military has utilized all sorts of animals, from bomb-detecting honeybees and "chickens used as early-warning sensors for chemical attacks" to guard dogs and dolphins trained to hunt mines.

Additionally, he notes, the DoD's emphasis on the natural world has led to robots that resemble dogs, monkeys that control robotic limbs with their minds, and numerous other projects inspired by nature.

But whatever other creatures they favor, insects never seem far from the Pentagon's dreams of the future. In fact, Shachtman reported earlier this year that "Air Force scientists are looking for robotic bombs that look -- and act -- like swarms of bugs and birds." He went on to quote Colonel Kirk Kloeppel, head of the Air Force Research Laboratory's munitions directorate, who announced the Lab's interest in "bio-inspired munitions," in "small, autonomous" machines that would "provide close-in [surveillance] information, in addition to killing intended targets."

This month, researcher Robert Wood wrote in IEEE Spectrum about what he believes was "the first flight of an insect-size robot." After almost a decade of research, Wood and his colleagues at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory are now creating small insect-like robots that will eventually be outfitted "with onboard sensors, flight controls, and batteries… to nimbly flit around obstacles and into places beyond human reach." Like cyborg insect researchers, Wood is DARPA-funded. Last year, in fact, the agency selected him as one of 24 "rising stars" for a "young faculty awards" grant.

Asked about the relative advantages of cyborg insects compared to mechanical bugs, Robert Michelson noted that "robotic insects obey without innate or external influences" and "they can be mass produced rapidly." He cautioned, however, that they are extremely limited power-wise. Insect cyborgs, on the other hand, "can harvest energy and continue missions of longer duration." However, they "may be diverted from their task by stronger influences"; must be grown to maturity and so may not be available when needed; and, of course, are mortal and run the risk of dying before they can be employed as needed.

The future is now
There is plenty of technical information about the HI-MEMS program available in the scientific literature. And if you make inquiries, DARPA will even direct you to some of the relevant citations. But while it's relatively easy to learn about the optimal spots to insert a neural stimulator in a green June beetle ("behind the eye, in the flight control area of the insect brain") or an electronic implant in a tobacco hawkmoth ("the main flight powering muscles… in the dorsal-thorax"), it's much harder to discover the likely future implications of this sci-fi sounding research.

The "final demonstration goal" -- the immediate aim -- of DARPA's HI-MEMS program "is the delivery of an insect within five meters of a specific target located a hundred meters away, using electronic remote control, and/or global positioning system (GPS)." Right now, DARPA doesn't know when that might happen. "We basically operate phase to phase," says Walker. "So, it kind of depends on how they do in the current phase and we'll make decisions on future phases."

DARPA refuses to examine anything but research-oriented issues. As a result, its Pentagon-funded scientists churn out inventions with potentially dangerous, if not deadly, implications without ever fully considering -- let alone seeking public or expert comment on -- the future ramifications of new technologies under production.

"The people who build this equipment are always going to say that they're just building tools, that there are legitimate uses for them, and that it isn't their fault if the tools are abused," says the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Eckersley. "Unfortunately, we've seen that governments are more than willing to play fast-and-loose with the legal bounds on surveillance. Unless and until that changes, we'd urge researchers to find other projects to work on."

Funny how the NWO created a weapon that H.G. Wells spoke about over 100 years ago:
http://www.technovelgy.com/ct/content.asp?Bnum=626
The Martians fought with weapons as yet unimagined by the people of Earth; an invisible sword of fire that destroyed all it touched.Flutter, flutter, went the flag, first to the right, then to the left. It was too far for me to recognise anyone there, but afterwards I learned that Ogilvy, Stent, and Henderson were with others in this attempt at communication. This little group had in its advance dragged inward, so to speak, the circumference of the now almost complete circle of people, and a number of dim black figures followed it at discreet distances.

Suddenly there was a flash of light, and a quantity of luminous greenish smoke came out of the pit in three distinct puffs, which drove up, one after the other, straight into the still air.

This smoke (or flame, perhaps, would be the better word for it) was so bright that the deta blue sky overhead and the hazy stretches of brown common towards Chertsey, set with black pine trees, seemed to darken abruptly as these puffs arose, and to remain the darker after their dispersal. At the same time a faint hissing sound became audible.

Beyond the pit stood the little wedge of people with the white flag at its apex, arrested by these phenomena, a little knot of small vertical black shapes upon the black ground. As the green smoke arose, their faces flashed out pallid green, and faded again as it vanished. Then slowly the hissing passed into a humming, into a long, loud, droning noise. Slowly a humped shape rose out of the pit, and the ghost of a beam of light seemed to flicker out from it.

Forthwith flashes of actual flame, a bright glare leaping from one to another, sprang from the scattered group of men. It was as if some invisible jet impinged upon them and flashed into white flame. It was as if each man were suddenly and momentarily turned to fire.

Then, by the light of their own destruction, I saw them staggering and falling, and their supporters turning to run.

I stood staring, not as yet realising that this was death leaping from man to man in that little distant crowd. All I felt was that it was something very strange. An almost noiseless and blinding flash of light, and a man fell headlong and lay still; and as the unseen shaft of heat passed over them, pine trees burst into fire, and every dry furze bush became with one dull thud a mass of flames. And far away towards Knaphill I saw the flashes of trees and hedges and wooden buildings suddenly set alight.

It was sweeping round swiftly and steadily, this flaming death, this invisible, inevitable sword of heat. I perceived it coming towards me by the flashing bushes it touched, and was too astounded and stupefied to stir. I heard the crackle of fire in the sand pits and the sudden squeal of a horse that was as suddenly stilled. Then it was as if an invisible yet intensely heated finger were drawn through the heather between me and the Martians, and all along a curving line beyond the sand pits the dark ground smoked and crackled. Something fell with a crash far away to the left where the road from Woking station opens out on the common. Forthwith the hissing and humming ceased, and the black, domelike object sank slowly out of sight into the pit.

'Ray Gun' a Lethal Weapon, Says Former OSI Agent
http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/04/ray-gun-a-letha.html
By Sharon Weinberger April 03, 2008 | 3:09:00 PMCategories: Lasers and Ray Guns, Less-lethal, Shhh!!!   

"Dead animals can't speak," says Dave Gaubatz, a former OSI agent, who worked on security for the Active Denial System at Kirtland Air Force Base. Gaubatz saw he saw clear evidence that the Air Force was testing lethal effects related to microwave weapons, including the Active Denial System.

The Active Denial System, of course, is the military's nonlethal "pain ray" that uses millimeter waves to heat the top layer of skin to create an intense burning sensation.

In an interview with FrontPage, Gaubatz says he saw "truck loads of animals were being brought in during the middle of the night."

Dead animals can’t speak, but if a goat or 500 pound cow can be killed almost instantly with the Ray Gun, then I believe most readers can safely assume a 175 pound man or woman could also die instantly from the intense heat.

Don't believe that Gaubatz was really in a position to see these things? Well, he's got proof that he was there.

Gaubatz'  more controversial claim is that the Active Denial System is really designed as a lethal weapon. That would mean all the testing and legal review related to its deployment is a cover-up. But that's not to say Gaubatz is wrong about what he saw, however.  I don't think it's much of a stretch to believe that the Air Force conducts testing on animals related to lethal effects of potential microwave weapons.

you will see more and more of these connections as they try to force in the NWO.

they used to keep everything separate, but the degrees of separation are going away.

Soon they will say depleated uranium is good plant food.

"helping to save thousands of lives"

The phrase that allows for anything...

We are going to inject microchips in all humans to help save thousands of lives.

We are going to cause all humans to have autism to help save thousands of lives.

So what happens now when we say that a snake was really a government robot...are we then still called insane?

They are not even hiding it anymore.

Robobug goes to war: Troops to use electronic insects to spot enemy 'by end of the year'
By DANIEL COCHLIN - More by this author »
full post:



Last updated at 16:32pm on 4th May 2008



Plans for a robot that can crawl like a spider are 'well developed'
It may have seemed like just another improbable scene from a Hollywood sci-fi flick – Tom Cruise battling against an army of robotic spiders intent on hunting him down.

But the storyline from Minority Report may not be quite as far fetched as it sounds.

British defence giant BAE Systems is creating a series of tiny electronic spiders, insects and snakes that could become the eyes and ears of soldiers on the battlefield, helping to save thousands of lives.

Prototypes could be on the front line by the end of the year, scuttling into potential danger areas such as booby-trapped buildings or enemy hideouts to relay images back to troops safely positioned nearby.

Soldiers will carry the robots into combat and use a small tracked vehicle to transport them closer to their targets.

Then they would swarm into the building and relay images back to the soldiers' hand-held or wrist-mounted computers, warning them of any threats inside.

BAE Systems has just signed a £19million contract to develop the robots for the US Army.

Researchers hope they will eventually create machines that can fly like a butterfly

Plans for a creature that can crawl like a spider are said to be well developed, and researchers eventually hope to be able to create creatures that can slither like a snake or fly like a dragonfly.

While some of the creatures will be fitted with small cameras, others will be equipped with sensors that will be able to detect the presence of chemical, biological or radioactive weapons.

A computer-generated video from BAE Systems shows the tiny invaders being released by a soldier, before scouting out a suspect building, which is finally blown up by ground forces.

BAE Systems scientists from the UK and America plan an army of the electronic bugs, and have ambitions to equip every front-line soldier with them.

Programme manager Steve Scalera was inspired by the way creatures use their senses to detect danger.

Scanners that see through clothing installed in US airports

Scanners that see through clothing installed in US airports



 NEW YORK (AFP) - Security scanners which can see through passengers' clothing and reveal details of their body underneath are being installed in 10 US airports, the US Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday.

A random selection of travellers getting ready to board airplanes in Washington, New York's Kennedy, Los Angeles and other key hubs will be shut in the glass booths while a three-dimensional image is made of their body beneath their clothes.

The booths close around the passenger and emit "millimeter waves" that go through cloth to identify metal, plastics, ceramics, chemical materials and explosives, according to the TSA.

While it allows the security screeners -- looking at the images in a separate room -- to clearly see the passenger's sexual organs as well as other details of their bodies, the passenger's face is blurred, TSA said in a statement on its website.

The scan only takes seconds and is to replace the physical pat-downs of people that is currently widespread in airports.

TSA began introducing the body scanners in airports in April, first in the Phoenix, Arizona terminal.

The installation is picking up this month, with machines in place or planned for airports in Washington (Reagan National and Baltimore-Washington International), Dallas, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Miami and Detroit.

But the new machines have provoked worries among passengers and rights activists.

"People have no idea how graphic the images are," Barry Steinhardt, director of the technology and liberty program at the American Civil Liberties Union, told AFP.

The ACLU said in a statement that passengers expecting privacy underneath their clothing "should not be required to display highly personal details of their bodies such as evidence of mastectomies, colostomy appliances, penile implants, catheter tubes and the size of their breasts or genitals as a pre-requisite to boarding a plane."

Besides masking their faces, the TSA says on its website, the images made "will not be printed stored or transmitted."

"Once the transportation security officer has viewed the image and resolved anomalies, the image is erased from the screen permanently. The officer is unable to print, export, store or transmit the image."

Lara Uselding, a TSA spokeswoman, added that passengers are not obliged to accept the new machines.

"The passengers can choose between the body imaging and the pat-down," she told AFP.

TSA foresees 30 of the machines installed across the country by the end of 2008. In Europe, Amsterdam's Schipol airport is already using the scanners.

Heat Ray and Airport Scanner uses same technology!

Imagine the scenario. A passenger casually walks through Airport Security and is scanned with the new Millimetre Wave technology that allows the guards to see through their clothes.



Now imagine that this passenger has inadvertently carried some nail clippers in their pocket. The scanner detects that the passenger has "prohibited item" and immediately increases the Millimetre Wave output causing excruciating pain. The passenger writhing on the ground can then be dealt with "properly" by security staff.

Sound a bit outlandish? Well the new technology that  is going to be used to scan through our clothes at Airports is the very same technology used in those Heat Ray cannons that we have all heard about and seen on YouTube.

US unveils 'heat gun'

By Duncan Hooper
Last Updated: 2:28am GMT 26/01/2007

The US military has unveiled a "heat gun" designed to inflict an intense burning sensation on its target without causing lasting harm.


The weapon is mounted on a Humvee

The so-called Active Denial System, which should be ready for deployment in 2010, is designed to disperse crowds or force enemy soldiers to surrender. It can be fired from the back of a humvee and, at over 500 yards, its range is far greater than the rubber bullets used in riot control today.

Millimetre waves fired from the gun penetrate the outer layers of skin just far enough to cause pain, but the burning feeling disappears as soon as the target moves out of the line of fire. Even thick clothing is no protection against the device, though the rays can't travel through walls.

The weapon was yesterday demonstrated on a group of soldiers and reporters at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia, where it has been undergoing operational tests.

Microwave ray gun controls crowds with noise

Microwave ray gun controls crowds with noise

A US company claims it is ready to build a microwave ray gun able to beam sounds directly into people's heads.

The device – dubbed MEDUSA (Mob Excess Deterrent Using Silent Audio) – exploits the microwave audio effect, in which short microwave pulses rapidly heat tissue, causing a shockwave inside the skull that can be detected by the ears. A series of pulses can be transmitted to produce recognisable sounds.

The device is aimed for military or crowd-control applications, but may have other uses.

Lev Sadovnik of the Sierra Nevada Corporation in the US is working on the system, having started work on a US navy research contract. The navy's report states that the effect was shown to be effective.
Scarecrow beam?

MEDUSA involves a microwave auditory effect "loud" enough to cause discomfort or even incapacitation. Sadovnik says that normal audio safety limits do not apply since the sound does not enter through the eardrums.

"The repel effect is a combination of loudness and the irritation factor," he says. "You can’t block it out."

Sadovnik says the device will work thanks to a new reconfigurable antenna developed by colleague Vladimir Manasson. It steers the beam electronically, making it possible to flip from a broad to a narrow beam, or aim at multiple targets simultaneously.

Sadovnik says the technology could have non-military applications. Birds seem to be highly sensitive to microwave audio, he says, so it might be used to scare away unwanted flocks.

Sadovnik has also experimented with transmitting microwave audio to people with outer ear problems that impair their normal hearing.
Brain damage risk

James Lin of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Illinois in Chicago says that MEDUSA is feasible in principle.

He has carried out his own work on the technique, and was even approached by the music industry about using microwave audio to enhance sound systems, he told New Scientist.

"But is it going to be possible at the power levels necessary?" he asks. Previous microwave audio tests involved very "quiet" sounds that were hard to hear, a high-power system would mean much more powerful – and potentially hazardous – shockwaves.

"I would worry about what other health effects it is having," says Lin. "You might see neural damage."

Sierra Nevada says that a demonstration version could be built in a year, with a transportable system following within 18 months. They are currently seeking funding for the work from the US Department of Defence.

This is nothing less than a strip search in order to board an airplane. It is outrageous that this technology should be allowed to be used. How long do you think the screening will remain optional? Do you think they will spend the money to install the technology and then not use it? This will become a requirement for everyone after a while.
