SCALAR ANTI-PERSONNEL WEAPON
From a military viewpoint, these scalar EM
weapons are really quite all-around weapons.
For example, they are very lethal against personnel.
Set in the "high intensity pulse mode," one blast and a personís nervous system is destroyed instantly. Total, instantaneous death results. One can blast away at entire groups of infantrymen, for example. Itís the peak power thatís important, not the average power. So the weapon doesnít require too much battery power.
Set on a lower intensity pulse mode, one zap can simply knock out a person, rendering him instantly unconscious. Quite useful if one needs prisoners to interrogate. Also very silent, which is useful in operations employing stealth and surprise.
