Who's Who and What's What in Directed Energy Weapons and Psychotronics

I received this document in my email from a victim who typically does a good job at finding essential information regarding DEW and Psychotronics, sharing it with a network of other victims of torture.

Many victims of attacks by the federal government against our fellow citizens using these weapons do extensive  research for years believing they will find relief from their government, to no avail, because the people who are supposed to be protecting their lives are the people harming them.

And you.

At the very least, familiarity with words used in directed energy weapons will make it possible for you to notice how much they are a part of making your life miserable right now.

 Could/Would Secret Service Kill You With Directed Energy in Guarding President Obama by Sherwood Martinelli

http://washingtonscandal.blogspot.com:80/2008/11/couldwould-secret-service-kill-you-with.html

WOW...Directed Energy, the stuff of Science Fiction and Marvel Comic Books...not exactly. I stumbled upon and article by David Hambling that suggests, even hints that the Secret Service is/has deployed Directed Energy Weapons as a part of their arsenal to protect President Obama.

Realizing we could all be microwaved by an over zealous (and overly nervious) Secret Service, thought we should all know a bit about this DIRECTED ENERGY...in fact, it seems that the Air Force, Homeland Security and others are quite interested in Directed Energy as well...even more troublesome...there is a very real chance that the NEI, NRC and the owners of 104 dangerous trouble plagued (and in some cases ready to FAIL) nuclear reactors are considering the use of Directed Energy weapons in crowd control should there be a significant accident at one of these facilities.

In an interesting side note to all this...seems that a particular segment of the Army involved in Directed Energy is also providing Tritium Tracking services...sure would be interesting to find out if Indian Point and/or Entergy are using this service, or for that matter if NEI or NRC have availed themselves of the service in light of the fact that a LARGE NUMBER of America's aging nuclear reactors are beginning to have SERIOUS TRITIUM LEAKAGE PROBLEMS...could the NRC explain to me, a stakeholder how they can claim Tritium presents NO DANGER TO MY HEALTH if the Army is concerned enough about it to have the ability TO TRACK IT?

Secret Directed-Energy Tech Protecting the President?

By David Hambling November 14, 2008

The Secret Service is tasked with protecting the President of the United States from assailants; and given that President-elect Obama has already been the target of assassination plots they may have their work cut out after January. But they have more than earpiece radios and armored limos to help them; the Secret Service can call on the very latest technology. Documents from a recent court case indicate that they have advanced directed-energy devices which are highly classified.

You may remember Donald Friedman, who claims that government agencies are misusing non-lethal directed-energy weapons. It’s easy to dismiss him as a crank. But his obsessive digging has turned up valuable information. For instance, one of his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests unearthed a 1998 U.S. Army program looking at a microwave device to beam sound directly into the target's skull which the rest of us had missed. (The same technology underlies the Medusa non-lethal weapon.)

Now he's found something else. Friedman's current court case involves attempts to extract information about any directed-energy weapons such as lasers and microwaves used by the Secret Service.

Do they really have anything of the kind? A "Motion for an Enlargement of Time" (in other words, a request for a few more weeks) by the Secret Service's attorney indicates that they have something, and it's pretty secret:

"Plaintiff's FOIA request is for document [sic] concerning directed energy technology that is very sensitive. Some of this documents [sic] pertain to research conducted by divisions within defendant agency that is used to carry out its mandate to protect very high government officials. In fact, in one case, the documents… could not be mailed but had to be hand carried interstate."

So what is this "sensitive" technology? We don't know for sure, naturally. But we can sure speculate...

Now, we've talked before about the Secret Service's interest in laser dazzlers as a means of protecting the White House against suicide attacks by light aircraft, dating back to 1998. We don't know if dazzlers have ever been deployed, but that would certainly explain some of the secrecy.

Portable dazzlers would also be a good way of dealing with potential snipers without the risk of harming bystanders. Other agencies also have an interest in covert dazzlers. Ex MI6 agent David Tomlinson claims a laser strobe was proposed for an assassination attempt on Slobodan Milosevic in 1992 by dazzling his chauffeur at a crucial point and causing him to crash. (Conspiracy theorists claim that a laser dazzler was used to assassinate Diana, Princess of Wales — but any bright flashes more likely came from photographer's flashguns.)

A portable version of the truck-mounted Active Denial System — the Pentagon's "pain ray" — might be used to similar effect. It could cause an assailant to flinch for a vital second, giving agents an opportunity to get the President out of the line of fire, without having to shoot into a crowd. Raytheon has been working on a rifle-sized version of the Active Denial System for some years, but nothing has been heard of it recently. http://www.deps.org

Non Lethal Directed Energy Weapons

http://www.acq.osd.mil/dsb/reports/2007-12-Directed_Energy_Report.pdf

 Anti-personnel non lethal directed energy weapons include lasers, high power electro-magnetic pulse and directional acoustic weapons. One of the systems currently in use is the SaberShot laser dazzler – this hand held or weapon mounted low-power device uses 250Mw of 532nm green-laser.

When directed at the target, the laser's optics temporarily expand to generate a blinding light which penetrates smoke, fog at twice the range of white light.

Modulation of such high intensity light cause disorientation, dazzle and blink reaction that reduces the target's activity. Such weapon could be used to disorient and degrade performance of potential threats, such as snipers, or RPG launchers.

[Note: This same sort of visual effect is used on television, and will be even more effective when digital tv broadcasting becomes the standard]

Directed Energy Weapons

Directed energy weapons (DEWs) are systems that use a ray of energy (e.g. laser) to damage or destroy equipment, infrastructures and individuals. DEWs are suitable primarily to disable an opponent’s electronics, sensors, command and communication systems. There are different types of DEWs, but all have the following characteristics:

 They can hit a target at the speed of the light. Many aim and fire problems are history.

Although some powerful DEWs require major investments (weapons technology and supporting infrastructure), the cost of actual use is relatively low.

The power of a DEW is controllable. Although more powerful types could cause great damage, it is also possible to provide precise fire power that will not necessarily lead to additional damage.

The expertise needed to produce some of these weapons, such as high power microwave devices (HPM), is fairly easy to obtain.

In fact, many experiments are carried out using converted microwave ovens. Components are easily accessible and cheap, which makes HPM weapons attractive to terrorists, especially for the purpose of destroying infrastructural facilities.

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.

Silent Guardian uses millimeter-wave technology to stop, deter or repel adversaries threatening our forces or sensitive infrastructure.

Vigilant Eagle creates a protective zone around airports to safeguard aircraft when they are at their most vulnerable – on take off and landing. Vigilant Eagle is based on a high-powered microwave beam that can be dispatched from a ground station to deflect shoulder-fired missiles away from aircraft.

The Laser Area Defense System (LADS) combines the capabilities of the 20-millimeter Phalanx weapon system with the power and effectiveness of lasers to provide fast, precise search, track and engage capabilities for directing laser energy on target, destroying mortars and other munitions in flight.

Quiet Eyes, a baseball-sized turret that can be mounted on combat helicopters, uses a laser beam to disrupt shoulder-fired missiles.

 US Navy Evaluates Metal Strom's FireStorm Non Lethal Weapon Launcher

The Australian weapon developer Metal Storm International (MSI) completed a demonstration of non lethal weapon system utilizing its rapid fire 'Metal Storm' system. The company was one of two companies invited to participate in a Market Research Demonstration (MRD) for the US Marine Corps System Command’s Mission Payload Module – Non Lethal Weapon System program, assessing the maturity level of new technologies. Following the MRD, the U.S. Government plans to solicit proposals for the System Development and Demonstration Phase (SDD). (more...)

Nonionizing Directed Energy Bioeffects

The human eye is the most important sensor on the modern battlefield.

Increased international use of laser-guided weaponry and the potential or known health hazards of emerging anti-eye weapons demands development and fielding of medical treatment tools to protect the sight and skin of Soldiers engaged in modern military operations.

Retinal injury from frequency agile laser weapons systems and laser-tissue interactions from infrared systems exposure require immediate assessment and treatment, pharmacological and surgical interventions, and post-injury vision and performance evaluation. To protect eyesight of the Soldier, this Program Area explores and develops prognostic and diagnostic applications to protect against retinal cell injury or reduce neural element loss after injury, medical treatment strategies for laser eye injury, and tests the feasibility of advanced neuroprotectant pharmaceutical agents developed under the Neurotoxin Exposure Treatment Research Program (NETRP) to minimize or reverse adverse consequences to the Soldier of eye or skin exposure to nonionizing directed energy.
