BIO EFFECTS OF NON LETHAL DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS.
Non-lethal weapons Edit
The TECOM Technology Symposium in 1997 concluded on non-lethal weapons, “determining the target effects on personnel is the greatest challenge to the testing community”, primarily because “the potential of injury and death severely limits human tests”.
Also, “directed-energy weapons that target the central nervous system and cause neurophysiological disorders may violate the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention of 1980. Weapons that go beyond non-lethal intentions and cause ‘superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering’ may also violate the Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 1977.”
Some common bio-effects of non-lethal electromagnetic weapons include:
Other systemic discomfort
Interference with breathing poses the most significant, potentially lethal results.
Light and repetitive visual signals can induce epileptic seizures. Vection and motion sickness can also occur.
Cruise ships are known to use sonic weapons (such as LRAD) to drive off pirates.
Russia has been reportedly using blinding laser weapons during its military intervention in Donbass.
