    Saw this on the news and thought it was kind of interesting.  Wonder how much it cost the Navy/DoD to develop this thing? 
    All I know is HITRON could easily make quick work of Somali outboards at a fraction of the price

    Interesting.
    Did you read some of the comments about the article. Someone said our government will now use this new technology as crowd control. What???

    I've seen that on TV before, they talk about deploying it just like that sound-gun thing the somali pirates use for target practice (so I've heard).  They tested it on some guys in jackets and they started freaking out and running away shedding their clothes as they went 
    It's a toned down version of that weapon.  Effective, but expensive.

    Master - I believe you're talking about the LRAD. It's effective an actually deployed on some Navy vessels. http://defense-update.com/products/l/LRAD.htm
