US Military’s Ray Gun

Raytheon has created a “ray gun” type weapon called Silent Guardian for the US military. It emits an invisible beam of high-energy radio frequency. The non-lethal beam heats up the moisture on the skin inflicting pain.

I was unable to find any video of the weapon being demonstrated on anyone, but here’s a radio story of the demo for reporters and a video from Raytheon’s web site of the equipment.
