    Field radio operator, Sgt. Frank Torres, and his group of riff-raffs retreat after being hit by a wave of hot air from the Active Denial System during a demonstration at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., March 9. The ADS is a non-lethal weapon that projects a long range, man-sized beam of millimeter waves that produce a reversible heating sensation to the skin, much like opening a hot oven. It is one of many non-lethal weapons the Marine Corps is looking to deploy into combat zones to minimize casualties and collateral damage. It can be used for perimeter defense, crowd control and area denial against any human threat. Torres and the other Marines simulated scenarios where the ADS could be used.
