Frequency Research Goes Mainstream

Frequency research is going on in labs all over the world and new technology is often first used by the military. Deriving positive uses of military technology in medicine typically takes decades due to systemic suppression of innovation. See comments from the Harvard Business Review in a previous posting.

Israelis unleash Scream at protest
New weapon knocks crowds off feet
Sound blast triggers nausea, dizziness

JERUSALEM—The knees buckle, the brain aches, the stomach turns. And suddenly, nobody feels like protesting anymore. Such is the impact of the Scream, the latest weapon in the Israeli army’s high-technology toolkit.Launched Friday afternoon near the West Bank village of Bil’in, after another in the almost daily demonstrations against Israel’s controversial security barrier turned violent, Israel’s secret weapon lived up to its billing, by most accounts.

Witnesses describe a minute-long blast of sound emanating from a white Israeli military vehicle. Within seconds, protestors began falling to their knees, unable to maintain their balance. An Israeli military source, speaking on the customary condition of anonymity, confirmed the existence of the Scream, or Tze’aka in Hebrew, in an interview yesterday.

“The intention is to disperse crowds with sound pulses that create nausea and dizziness,” the Israel Defence Force spokesperson told the Toronto Star. “It is probably the cleanest device we have ever had, when you compare it to rubber bullets or tear gas. It is completely non-lethal. It has no adverse effects, unless someone is exposed to the sound for hours and hours.”

IDF officials said the technology was researched and developed over a span of five years as a result of “lessons learned” during the Israeli army’s withdrawal from Lebanon.

    Is this the same thing they used in gulf war 1991 ? I also heard the cell phone towers we see everywhere now are capable of dropping people to their knees in excruciating pain. This sounds very similar. Anybody know ?
