A Pasadena, California company has created a device that will destroy a car’s electrical system and stop it dead in its tracks. Just one pulse from this beam disables cars up to 50 feet away.
How does it work? One beam pulsed in a burst lasting just 50 nanoseconds disrupts your vehicle‘s electrical system. The radiation can overload wires, or damage or upset your car‘s central microprocessor.
Their prototype is 5 feet long, 3 feet wide, 1 foot thick, and weighs just under 200 pounds. With proper funding, it may be possible to create a device weighing only 50 pounds that works from 600 feet away.
It operates on the same general principle as a microwave oven, but at a 300 megahertz frequency, rather than your standard microwave oven, which operates at about 2.5 gigahertz. It is said to be non-harmful to humans.
