The Goodbye Weapon

A new non-lethal weapon, the Air Force's Active Denial System, or ADS, has been certified for use in Iraq, after extensive testing. The ADS shoots a beam of waves that causes extreme (but temporary) pain and induces what experimenters call the "Goodbye effect," or "prompt and highly motivated escape behavior." Wired News obtained documents about the weapon and has published two reports (article(1)/documentation(2)). Additionally, the report's author David Hambling has posted a commentary(3) on the subject at Defense Tech.
