The defense contractor Raytheon has built multiple Active Denial Systems in collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory for the Department of Defense. These directed energy weapons are being illegally used on innocent civilians without any Congressional oversight or laws. These microwave based weapons fire a “pain ray” at protestors, activists, and dissidents using a microwave signal tuned to 95 Ghz.
It appears to a collection of concerned citizens that these Active Denial Systems are being abused and used on American civilians, while inside their private residences’, places’ of work, as well in even public areas. This is not only a violation of many existing laws, the US Constitution and war treaties, but also is a extreme violation of human rights.
An Active Denial System was even almost deployed by the National Guard on June 1st, 2020, during the peaceful protests outside of the White House. This directed energy weapon order of attack would involve firing heat rays directly at the peaceful protesters.
We ask that Raytheon conduct an in-depth audit of how their directed energy weapon is being used and immediately end the Active Denial System program that is being illegally used on United States civilians.
