Less Than

  • Maruta, a program of experimentation on human beings at the Imperial Japanese Army's Unit 731 

1992-Studies are under way examining the viability of using acoustics as a less-lethal weapon. Acoustic technology devices. The inner ear regulates spatial orientation; thus, saturation by high-intensity sound can cause disorientation in people..In the early 1990s, the Russian government developed a highpowered, very-low-frequency (VLF) modulator could cause general physical discomfort, and increasing the power could induce nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pains . The Long Range Acoustic Device (or LRAD) is a crowd-control and deterrent sonic weapon developed by the American Technology Corporation.The device.The LRAD is capable of transmitting spoken words as well as a shrill high-pitched warning tones. It has been effectively deployed in Iraq, in Afghanistan,and by some large police departments in the United States for use during mass demonstrations and other public disorder situations.

Active-Denial Devices Active-denial technology uses electromagnetic energy to rapidly heat up an approaching subject’s skin and ultimately deter the subject from advancing on a particular position. Active-denial technology uses a transmitter to send a narrow beam of 95-GHz millimeter waves toward a specific subject or group. Traveling at the speed of light, the energy reaches the subject and penetrates less than 1/64 of an inch into the skin, heating it to 130 degrees in less than two seconds. This produces an intense burning sensation that stops when the transmitter is switched off or when the individual backs away
Critical Issues in Policing Forum brought together police executives who had introduced this new technology. Chief James Corwin, Kansas City (MO) Police Department; Chief Harold Hurtt, Houston Police Department; Chief Albert Najera, Sacramento Police Department; and Chief Darrel Stephens, Charlotte-Mecklenburg (NC) Police Department, all offered their perspectives of other more exotic acoustic deterrents that aim voices directly at an individual 's auditory cortex .The voice only the target can hear causes disorientation and panic as the disembodied voice that bypasses the ear is meant to mimic schizophrenia and is often enough to incapacitate the most hostile criminal with no use of possibly lethal force -Janet Reno

 Increase Permeability of Blood Brain Barrier and gut 
  •   Open the blood-brain barrier to viruses and toxins 
  •   Heat head and ear 
  •   Induce ringing in the ears, impair sense of smell 
  •   Increase excitability at neuronal synapses 
  •   Damage nerves in the scalp 
  •   Cause diverse neuropsychiatric changes, including 
  •   Disrupt brain activity, alter brain waves (EEG readings), alter brain chemistry and alter the brain’s electrical activity during sleep 
  •   Lower levels of night time melatonin; sleep disruption and insomnia 
  •   Cause memory loss and mental confusion 
  •   Poor exploration of the local environment, 
    motivation waning 
  •   Cause headaches and induce extreme fatigue 
  •   Reverse cell membrane polarity (RBC’s form 
    Rouleaux formation) 
  •   Altered chronobiology leading to stress response 
  •   Cause blood cells to leak haemoglobin 
  •   Create joint pain, muscle spasms and tremors 

 Precipitate cataracts, retina damage and eye cancer
Immune disruption leading to over active, under active, and autoimmune conditions.
Create burning sensation and/or rash on the skin
Reduce the number and efficiency of white blood cells
Stimulate asthma by producing & releasing histamine in mast cells
Cause digestive problems
Stress the endocrine system, especially pancreas, thyroid, ovaries and testes
Cause single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA (via Oxidative stress pathways) – can lead to Cancer
Increase in tumourgenesis due to fragility and altered expression of RNA and DNA
Altered hormone and sex steroid levels
Leads to both male and female infertility
Leads to changes to the electrical control of the
heart resulting in tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), arrhythmia and can result in sudden cardiac arrest
Peripheral neurological effects leading to noxious and abnormal sensations or Dysesthesia
