Active Denial System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Active Denial System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "ADS works by directing electromagnetic radiation, specifically, high-frequency microwave radiation at a frequency of 95 GHz[6] (a wavelength of 3.2 mm), toward the subjects. The waves excite water molecules in the epidermis to around 130 °F (55 °C), causing an intensely painful sensation of extreme heat. While burning the skin[7][8], the burning sensation is similar to that of an incandescent light bulb being pressed against the skin.[6] The focused beam can be directed at targets at a range in excess of 700 meters.[9] The device can penetrate thick clothing, although not walls.[10]"
