Raytheon pain gun gets set to Afghanistan, then sent back

by Mark R

It has been a while since we have reported on the Raytheon’s pain inducing gun.

The military has been working on this device for years for “a more broad application for crowd control and interdiction which is known as the Active Denial System. Capable of inflicting limitless, unbearable pain, the ADS can unleash a wave of agony upon a force or crowd from a distance of over 250 meters.”

This device was taken over to Afghanistan, but my source has just said with an update that it has been returned to the United States without ever being used.

My source also says that the unit was “plagued by technical and safety issues for years, not to mention political concerns”. Gee, you really think so? After all, it is a device that can induce pain, on a massive scale! This is like a weapon of mass agonization. By the way, agonization is not a word, but I can’t really think of a word of bringing pain to another, unless it is torture.

Yeah, I’m guessing a weapon to make pain for torture is going to create some problems. I can see why it was returned unused.

I wonder what it would be like to be on the end of this pain gun. Maybe I don’t want to know.

I am guessing there were human rights concerns.
This thing is what is called a MASER. It uses a focused beam of microwaves to boil the moisture in your skin. It works, and instructions for building one out of an old microwave oven can be easily found on the internet.

[…] case you thought that the pain gun was the only real-life science fiction weapon that Raytheon was up to, then you haven’t heard […]

They Have been using the pain ray on American citizens in Pahrump NV for 10 years now of coarse covert I have seen it in use and have been a victim myself. Pahrump is a crap hole town about 50 miles outside area 51 in NV. They would point it at citizens homes then see there reactions. Human Ginnie pigs.They would use microwave and RF waves and they tried electromagnetic pulse. it speeds up the molecules in your body to a higher frequency and thats whats makes the heat.

Raytheon’s “pain gun” has gone to jail » Coolest Gadgets Says: August 25, 2010 at 4:39 pm

[…] realize that this headline is a little misleading. You might remember the last time we covered the Raytheon pain gun being banned from Afghanistan. I am not implying that it has committed crimes and is being sent to […]
