Moody Air Force Base - An airman at Moody Air Force Base has been injured by the military's newest non-lethal weapon.
The 820th Security Forces Group has been testing the Active Denial System, or ADS, since last fall.
The weapon uses invisible beam millimeter waves to penetrate the top layer of skin causing an intolerable heating sensation throughout the body.
The military will use this to deter combatants and save innocent lives in war zone situations.
During routine testing, an airman received a second degree burn from exposure.
The ADS has been tested on over 600 individuals and almost 11 thousand live-fire exposures.
This will be only the second reported injury.
