The American military have presented the world with a new weapon, informally named the heat ray or microwave cannon. The “Active Denial System” is a non-lethal weapon primarily designed for crowd control.
A video was uploaded on YouTube by USFORCESTV channel of the US military testing a new super high frequency (SHF) weapon. Rumors have long been spread about a “cannon”, which can be mounted on a military vehicle to disperse crowds with the help of a high-powered beam of electromagnetic radiation.
Hearsay still causes the US Department of Defense deny it has spent $120 million on a mobile microwave oven.
The Active Denial System (ADS) beams a high-frequency, man-sized electromagnetic wave 1,000 meters.
