  • A maritime demonstration of the Active Denial System was conducted in April 2006 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. 
The Active Denial System is an advanced, directed energy, counter-personnel non-lethal weapon. 
The ADS projects a focused beam of 95GHz millimeter waves at a range of up to 1,000 meters to induce an intolerable heating sensation on an adversary’s skin, repelling the individual with minimal risk of injury.

The robotic mule built by Boston Dynamics with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is currently being tested by the Marine Corps. Marines with 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, put the system through its paces for the first time Nov. 5-7, 2013. The LS3 is designed to reduce the load Marines carry in combat, can reach speeds of 6 mph and carry up to 400 pounds.
