What if there was a weapon whose effects you couldn't see or hear, but could
kill you from a distance of hundreds of metres? Fergus Day assesses the
disturbing potential of "Infrasound".

Picture the scenario. You're walking through a busy city street when a
disturbance breaks out. Suddenly, you're engulfed by a mass of heaving
bodies. You struggle to escape, but find you're blocked at every turn. Amid
the chaos, you hear the sound of approaching police sirens. When the
officers arrive, however, they are not carrying the usual riot shields and
batons; they have only what looks like large speakers, held out at arms
length.

Suddenly, you feel as, if you cannot breathe; your head is pounding as you
stumble to your knees. Overcome by nausea, you try to get up, but are
engulfed by a feeling of intense anxiety, and cannot move. As you lie there,
vomiting uncontrollably, those around you are dropping like flies. In the
end, the entire crowd is writhing in agony as the police wade in to make
arrests.

In the aftermath of your ordeal, you recover completely, but one question
remains; what caused the physical effects you experienced? You were not hit
by a rubber bullet, you saw no tear gas or other noxious substance in the
air. So why did so many people fall to the floor as if overtaken by some
crippling disease? The answer is simple. You and those around you had fallen
victim to a new and terrifying weapon - "Infrasound".

For decades, police forces and military authorities throughout the world
have
been increasingly keen to find methods of containing civil unrest without
the
risks to their own officers that are associated with current methods of riot
control. And, according to a number of researchers, in infrasound, military,
scientists may now have found the ideal solution to this problem. But what
exactly is infrasound and how is it capable of inducing such profound
physical effects?

Infrasound is a powerful, ultra-low frequency acoustic wave. All the sound
that we hear from the lowest bass to the highest treble, is between 16 and
20,000 Hertz, or cycles per second. Sound waves above or below these levels
cannot be heard by the human car. Because infrasound is, by definition,
sound
waves of a level below 16 Hertz, it bypasses our cars but can be felt by our
bodies in the form of pure vibrations. And it is these vibrations, dependent
upon their intensity, that some researchers say can induce a range of
symptoms, from nausea, headaches and vomiting, to the rupturing of internal
organs and even death.

But infrasound is no new invention. In nature, it is produced by powerful
and
destructive events, such as earthquakes, thunder and erupting volcanoes. The
sound waves can travel many kilometres and are not blocked by stone,
buildings or other sounds. Infrasound also features strongly in the
technology that dominates urban life in towns and cities. Rapidly moving
objects, such as car engines, fans and air conditioners are responsible for
low levels of infrasound that surround us on a daily basis.

The fact that certain sound frequencies have definite effects on the human
body has long been acknowledged by science. But while ultrasound
(frequencies
above 20,000 Hertz) has been openly harnessed by science to such mundane
ends
as repelling vermin or dislodging tartar from dentures, the study and
application of infrasound has been far more secretive.

Although infrasound research dates back as far as World War I, studies of
its
effects on human beings did not begin until the early 1960s. At this time,
NASA sponsored studies into the potential effects on astronauts of
infrasound
produced by spacecraft at launchtime. At the Wright-Patterson
Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, subjects were placed in pressure chambers
and
subjected to infrasound. Among the resulting effects were 'chest wall
vibrations, gag sensations, and respiratory rhythm changes'.

Just a few years later, in 1965, the sinister potential of infrasound was
fully,
uncovered. From extensive studies, Vladimir Gavreau, a scientist front the
French National
Centre for Scientific Research in Marseilles, found that a variety of
physical effects
were produced when human beings were exposed to ultra-low sound frequencies.
He
experimented with a series of tubes arid organ pipes that produced notes of
about 7 Hertz, and found that, by extending the tubes, the sound waves could
be directed
with some precision.

In producing these devices, Gavreau had, in effect, invented 'acoustic
lasers'.
These narrow beams of infrasound could apparently be aimed accurately,
producing
nausea, disorientation and headaches in those at whom they were directed.
When
the infrasound levels were intensified, test subjects also reported feelings
of
fright, panic and blurred vision.

Gavreau believed that a powerful enough infrasound device could knock down
walls, break windows and kill everyone within an 8-km radius. The device
would riot be
difficult to make, he argued, yet would have a devastating effect. Some
researchers have
even claimed that, during the late 1960s, the French military became
interested in
Gavreau's research and used his findings In the development of a growing
list of 'secret
weapons'.

Despite Gavreau's claims, however, many believe that the development of
lethal
infrasound weapons is highly impractical. Although relatively easy to build,
such weapons would have to be extremely large and powerful to kill outright.
Nevertheless, research into non-lethal infrasound weapons has continued
unabated. The potential of such weapons to break down resistance to
interrogation, to induce stress, confusion and disorientation in an enemy
has
made them particularly appealing to military scientists.

If infrasound frequencies could be directed extremely accurately, as
reportedly
achieved by, Gavreau, an individual or a group could suddenly faint, vomit,
or
suffer an epileptic fit, while those nearby would be unaffected. Such
devices
could also be small and easily carried in an armoured vehicle.

To many, evidence that such weapons have been under development for decades
is
provided by a United Nations draft agreement, drawn up in 1976, that
prohibited
the development of new weapons of mass destruction. Even at that time,
infrasound was deemed deserving of special monitoring, owing to the fact
that
the progress made in the area of acoustics had made infrasonic
weapons a viable and attractive possibility.

Despite such regulations, many researchers believe that infrasound weapons
have
already been used on an unsuspecting public. It is claimed, for example,
that
during the 1970s, the UK army tested infrasound devices in incidents of
rioting
and civil unrest in Northern Ireland. And, with ever-increasing levels of
investment in nonlethal technology, it would seem that such incidents can
only
become more common.

Today, infrasonic devices are among a growing list of 'non-lethal' weapons -
including stun guns, electromagnetic mindcontrol devices, and chemical
irritants
- that are readily available. Indeed, a number of infrasound technologies
are
currently registered with the US Patents Office. These include noise
generators
and transmitters, consciousness-altering machines and nervous system
excitation
devices the list is growing [longer] all the time.

In 1995, $41 minion was spent on non-lethal weaponry in the US and there is
growing interest in the technology. Many US Police forces, concerned with
the
control of civil unrest, believe that infrasound has all advantage over tear
gas
as it can be controlled much more easily The effectiveness of infrasound has
even received the backing of the Pentagon, who, in a recent document claimed
that high-power infrasound could leave all enemy 'incapacitated by nausea'.

New advances in infrasound weaponry suggest that military scientists are
becoming more and more adept at harnessing ultra-low frequencies. A device
currently under development is said to combine an infrasound device with a
strobe light, and is capable of inducing extreme epileptic fits and complete
sensory disorientation.

Yet despite all the evidence, military authorities continue to deny any
involvement with infrasound, and the actual nature of research remains
shrouded
in secrecy. Some have even claimed that the alleged properties of infrasound
are
far from proven. Recently, German physicist Jurgen Altmann
claimed that, having studied the properties of infrasound, he found no
evidence
that it has any of the adverse effects reported.

This view has been echoed by; Lieutenant Colonel Martin N. Stanton of the US
Army, who apparently found infrasound weapons of little use while based in
war-torn Somalia as part of the US peacekeeping force. Stanton questions the
effectiveness of such weapons, claiming that riot-control troops are just as
susceptible to the effects of infrasound weapons as rioters.

Nevertheless, such scepticism does not appear to have affected those engaged
in
the production of infrasound weapons. In 1999, Maxwell Technologies of San
Diego
applied to patent a new potentially lethal infrasound weapon. The device,
designed to control hostile crowds or disable hostage takers, is said to
work
across a wide range of frequencies and is highly directional. The company
says
it is capable of affecting people up to 100 metres away and can allegedly
cause
eardrum rupture at 185 decibels (dB), pulmonary (lung) injury at 200dB and
death
at 220dB.

These and other developments suggest that infrasound weapons are far from a
pipedream. With the need to control an ever-growing population, it seems
likely
that, even if it hasn't been used already, the potential power of infrasound
will be utilized in some form or other in the future. And with more devices
being patented all the time that may be sooner than we think.

A Containment of civil unrest currently relies on traditional weapons, such
as
tear gas, riot shields and batons. However, if advances in infrasound
weapons
technology are to be believed, crowd control may soon be effected using the
devastating potential of ultra-low frequency sound. With the potential to
induce
a range of crippling physical symptoms, hand-held infrasound devices are
already
available over the Internet for as little as $120.

Aside from the threat of infrasound weaponry, a subtler danger may lie in
the
low levels of infrasound that surround us on a daily basis. Within the
everyday
items of Urban technological living are numerous devices that are known to
produce infrasound. Machinery such as cars, heating systems and trains all
produce ultra-low frequencies, and often city-dwellers complain of illnesses
that may be triggered by such 'infrasonic pollution'. The effects can vary
from
sleep disturbance and irritation to suicidal tendencies, but could this, as
some
hove suggested, be a deliberate oppression of the masses?

While this is unlikely, in the mid- 1970s, concerns over the effects of
infrasound on city-dwellers became a media furore. On 7 September 1975, the
"Melbourne Sunday Press" [Australia] ran an article on infrasound under the
alarmist headline: "The Low-Pitched Killer:  Can sounds of silence be
driving us
silly?" Public worries were duly intensified and, during this period, one
in-depth newspaper report apparently received 800 responses from people
claiming
to have suffered as a result of low levels of infrasound.

A recent occurrence at Coventry University in the UK may have revealed a
connection between infrasound and so-called paranormal phenomena, such as
ghosts
and poltergeists. In 1998, Vic Tandy, a 43-year-old computer expert, was
working
late in his laboratory. As the night wore on, he began sweating, and felt a
growing unease. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a mysterious figure
emerge,
making no sound. But when he turned to face the apparition, it vanished.

The next day, he began working on his fencing foil at a workbench. Picking
up
the foil, he was surprised to see the tip of it vibrating for no apparent
reason. His knowledge of physics was enough for him to suspect that
ultra-low
frequency sound was responsible. With the help of more scientifically-minded
colleagues, Tandy was able to determine that infrasound was being produced
by a
recently installed extractor fan. He and his colleagues surmised that
infrasound
was interfering with his vision, causing his eyeballs to vibrate and
creating a
blur. This, they felt, had caused the ghostly apparition, and was also
responsible for the feeling of anxiety. The case has led to suggestions that
many instances of an apparently paranormal nature may also find explanation
in
infrasound.

Infrasound has been put to good use by Hollywood. In 1975, Universal
Pictures
specially developed the 'Sensurround' system for the film Earthquake, which
produced the sensation of being in just such a natural disaster through the
use
of vibration that could be felt as well as heard by the audience.
Additionally,
low-frequency sound has been used in alternative therapy; vibrations
directed on
to a particular part of the human body are said to have a beneficial effect.
Linguists and biologists have long claimed that humans, use infrasound to
scare
off an enemy. It is thought that grunts, growls and shouts could mask a
lower
frequency, affecting an opponent's brain and internal organs. It has even
been
claimed that a certain cry used by Japanese Samurai warriors can partially
paralyse by suddenly lowering the blood pressure.

According to some researchers, prototypes of non-lethal infrasonic weapons
were
used by the UK Army to quell the troubles in Northern Ireland during the
1970s.
Although the UK military vehemently deny the claim, it is known that
research
carried out by French scientist Vladimir Gavreou in the 1960s had already
proved
the viability of such weapons. Gavreou subjected several test subjects to
differing levels of infrasound, and also produced a device for directing
ultra-low frequency soundwaves with some precision.
