ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque have developed a weapon called the Active Denial System.

The device repels adversaries by heating the water molecules in their skin with microwave energy. The pain is so great that people flee immediately.

Lab spokesman Rich Garcia says it feels like your skin is on fire. He was a test subject.

A Humvee-mounted Active Denial weapon is expected to be given to all services by the end of this year for evaluation. A decision about deployment is expected by the end of 2005.

Researchers at the lab have been working with Raytheon Company to develop the directed-energy weapon.

So we spend millions in R&D to conclude that microwaves boil water.

I coulda taken the magnetron out of mine the kitchen and mounted it to your ranger for about 50 cents in duct tape. HAHAHAHA those punks at EP will pay! :lol:
