    MMW with the power cranked up, meet the Pentagon's Area Denial System, aka the "Pain Ray":


    There've been several reports of tingling or burning sensation from the MMW units, should not be a surprise given that they're cousins.

    One airman severely injured:
    "Near farcical lack of operator training"? Oh, you mean like with TSA agents??

    Sounds kinda like the puffers. They didn't account for the humidity or dusty conditions of an airport.

    And apparently wet clothes, sweat, sweat stains, etc. get these MMW machines all riled up.

    Oh, boy! Another TSA whizbang gadget that can't work.

    So a person knowing the capabilities of this weapon system could injure or kill people with it.
