The new weapon — which has been in development for about a decade by some reports — is called a Vehicle-Mounted Active Denial system, which “fires directed energy at human targets,” according to MARINE TIMES. “Directed energy” is the military euphemism for a high-powered laser or a beam of high-frequency microwaves.
An earlier MARINE TIMES article, titled “The People Zapper,” explains how the weapon works:
“[It] causes the moisture in a person’s skin to heat up rapidly, creating a burning sensation similar to a hot light bulb pressed against one’s flesh. When used as directed — that is, briefly — the weapon causes no long-term problems…. The amount of time the weapon must be trained on an individual to cause permanent damage or death is classified.”
