US Army tests hand-held RAY GUN

US Army tests hand-held RAY GUN – energy blaster can deactivate weapons on the battlefield

The Burke Pulser fits into a standard M4 rifle

The US Army is testing a handheld ‘ray gun’ designed to deactivate enemy weapons on the battlefield.

The energy blaster – called the Burke Pulser – looks like a regular standard-issue M4 rifle but features a generator, two wide antennas and a blast shield to protect the user.

The Pulser converts the explosive energy of the gun into electrical energy using a generator.

The directed beam can then be used to deactivate electronics in a range of weapons systems and explosive devices.

This isn’t the first energy weapon, but most of them are incredibly bulky and are usually mounted on trucks – much like this laser weapon that can destroy a car.

This one is small enough that it could be mass-produced at an affordable price, military electronics engineer James Burke told Defense One.

It doesn’t look quite as cool as Rob Flickenger’s gun – he converted a toy Nerf gun into a super badass Tesla Gun that could fire 20,000 volts of electricity over a short distance.
