Directed-energy weapon

Post by weasel666 on Wed 26 Feb 2014, 15:20



A directed-energy weapon (DEW) emits energy in an aimed direction without the means of a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for a desired effect. Intended effects on humans may be non-lethal or lethal.

Aside from uses on people or as a potential missile defense, directed energy technology has also been shown to stop or disable moving cars, drones, jetskis and electronic devices such as mobile phones.

The energy can come in various forms:

   Electromagnetic radiation, including radio frequency, microwave, lasers and masers
   Particles with mass, in particle-beam weapons (technically a form of micro-projectile weapon)
   Sound, in sonic weapons
