Application of the microwave hearing technology could facilitate a private message
transmission. It may be useful to provide a disruptive condition to a person not aware of
the technology. Not only might it be disruptive to the sense of hearing, it could be
psychologically devastating if one suddenly heard "voices within one's head. "
Signals can be transmitted long distances (hundreds of meters)
using current technology. Longer distances and more sophisticated signal types will
require more bulky equipment, but it seems possible to transmit some signals at
closer ranges using man-potable equipment.
The effective range could be hundreds of meters.
The nature of the incapacitation is a rhythmic-activity synchronization of brain neurons
that disrupts normal codical control of the corticospinal and corticobulbar pathways this
disrupts normal functioning of the spinal motor neurons which control muscle
and body movements. Persons suffering from this condition lose voluntary control of
their body. This,synchronization may be accompanied by a sudden loss of consciousness
and intense muscle spasms
