Since the days of our early ancestors, humans have gradually increased the ways to hurt and kill one another. In the era of technology, the ability to inflict damage on others has reached new heights and the military around the world have developed or are in the process of developing a variety of strange and often frightening new weapon for the 21st century.
01. The Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection System
The Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection System or the sword is the Talon robot was first used in the detection and removal of explosives that have been modified with mounted guns. Sword is a radio-controlled and can be equipped with machine guns, rifles, grenade launchers and anti-tank rocket launcher. With armed robots have been used in Iraq, some predict this is the beginning of a new era of warfare and it's only a matter of time before the armed robotic unit forming part of the modern army, and perhaps even begin to think for themselves.
02. Electromagnetic Personnel Interdiction Control
Personnel Electromagnetic Control or prohibition of short EPIC is being developed by the U.S. Navy as a nonlethal weapon. This eliminates the emission of intense radio frequency that can penetrate walls and disrupt the function of inner ear targets, the effect of balance and coordination and gives them a bad case of hangover. Weapons designed to subdue the enemy without too much damage to them, though it could get quite messy.
03. The Silent Guardian
Other weapons designed by the U.S. military to defeat the enemy without hurting them is The Silent Guardian. Weapons are a 95GHz millimeter wave "active denial system" and has a range of 500 meters. It can be used for each target or targets of mass and heat the skin to a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius which is comparable to the explosion of a very hot oven; repels heat or the crowd, forcing them to retreat to the rear. When the target moves out of range of the beam, the burning sensation stopped and no damage caused.
04. The Air Born Laser
The Air Born Laser, or ABL weapon system is currently under development and will use high energy, chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL) mounted on a modified 747-400F (cargo) aircraft primarily to shoot down ballistic missiles. The idea is that friendly jets will patrol the area at an altitude of about 40,000 feet and scout for the missiles as they are launched. ABL system will then relay the information to a computer that will calculate its course and direction before the other with a force weapon class laser will destroy the missile on the launch area.
05. High Frequency Active auroral Research Program [HAARP]
High frequency active auroral research program or HAARP is a project that affects the weather system, which according to some scientists, is being developed in part at least, to be used as a weapon. HAARP will be able to enhance and extend the storm and divert the River vapor in Earth's atmosphere causing floods or drought in a particular target. Some even claim that weapons could cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and some believe this has happened. When explaining the earthquake that struck Tangshan in China on July 28, 1976, and killed more than 650,000 people, the New York Times reported that witnesses said that just before the first vibration lit the sky as bright as day at a red light and white. Plants in the area burned to a crisp, charred on one side as if by a fireball. This has led some so-called conspiracy theorists to speculate that the 'weather weapons' are used, and has been for some time. [sourc]
