Sonic 'lasers' head to flood zone

"In mid-90's morning heat at Edwards Air Force Base, HPV Technologies and American Technology demonstrated prototypes of non-lethal sonic devices for a group of military and law enforcement guests, including representatives of the U.K. Home Office.<br><br>Representatives of both companies say that <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>within days</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->, they will ship some units of their respective products to areas hit by Hurricane Katrina, so authorities can use the tools for <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>crowd control</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->, aid distribution and rescue operations.<br><br>Costa Mesa, California-based HPV showed off three sizes of its Magnetic Acoustic Device, or MAD, a black square panel composed of multiple speakers. The units on display ranged from about 4 to 10 feet across.<br><br>The device uses magnets approximately 6 inches tall and 9.25 inches wide to convert electrical pulses into sound waves, and is capable of aiming sound precisely for thousands of feet -- like the sonic equivalent of a laser, or spotlight. <br><br>Its path and reach can be affected by environmental factors such as nearby flat surfaces, hills, bodies of water or strong bursts of wind.<br><br>A series of test sounds beamed out by MAD, including gunfire, music and instructional commands, were audible and intelligible at distances of up to a mile. <br><br>When a subject is at close range in MAD's sonic path, and it is set to high volume, the sound can be excruciating." <br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,68732,00.html?tw=wn_tophead_1">wired.com/news/technology..._tophead_1</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>I may be reading too much into this, but it seems like there are preparations for some serious "crowd control" some days from now. <p><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="color:black;font-family:century gothic;font-size:x-small;"><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Qutb means "axis," "pole," "the center," which contains the periphery or is present in it.

<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x4578986" target="top">DU thread</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> on weather weapons:<br><br>This was emailed to me. I thought I would post it here. I don't know what to make of it. My mind cannot wrap around this. <br><br>http://www.defenselink.mil/transcripts/1997/t042897_t04... <br><br><br>" Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. <br><br>There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.<br><br>So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."<br><br>Interesting response:<br><br>"I'd love to see the so called "Star Wars" docket at the patent and trademark office. My ex's good friend (genius engineer type who had worked at Sandia and stuff) was the guy who looked over all of those weather-as-weapons and other novel weapontry types of things. They had LOADS of them, and that was back in '84."<br> <p><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="color:black;font-family:century gothic;font-size:x-small;"><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Qutb means "axis," "pole," "the center," which contains the periphery or is present in it.
