Abstract
GEOST and the University of Arizona propose to develop and demonstrate the Weaponized Heating of Ignited Plasma Acoustic Modulation (WHIP-AM). This device produces acoustic signals at long range thereby providing the capability to convey messages and produce irritating acoustic tones. Through these effects WHIP-AM will provide the long range capability to determine intent, affect behavior, and communicate spoken messages.
