From the Paper:

"Over the years, the United States military has invented various types of weapons to be used during combat, sold to other nations, or used for general crowd control and similar non-violent situations. Recently, the military unveiled the newest weapon in its line of innovations named the Active Denial System. The Active Denial System can be more generally understood as a heat ray and unlike many other military innovations, the heat ray is a non-lethal military creation. The system was created for the purpose of crowd or riot control when situations present themselves where the use of lethal weapons or dangerous weaponry may not be appropriate."
