During the Cold War Washington feared Moscow was seeking to turn microwave radiation into covert weapons of mind control. More recently American military itself sought to develop microwave arms that could invisibly beam
painfully loud booms and even spoken words into people’s heads.

😱Now, doctors and scientists say such unconventional weapons may have caused the baffling symptoms that, starting in late 2016, hit more than three dozen American diplomats and family members in Cuba and China.
The Cuban incidents resulted in a diplomatic rupture between Havana and Washington.
"microwaves were now considered a main suspect and that the team was increasingly sure the diplomats had suffered brain injury."

In particular, a growing number of analysts cite an eerie
phenomenon known as the Frey effect, named after Allan H. Frey, an American scientist. Long ago, he found that microwaves can trick the brain into perceiving what seem to be ordinary sounds.

Moscow was so intrigued by the prospect of mind control that it
adopted a special terminology for the overall class of envisioned arms, calling them psychophysical and psychotronic. Soviet research on microwaves for “internal sound perception,” the Defense Intelligence Agency warned in 1976, showed great promise for “disrupting the behavior
patterns of military or diplomatic personnel.”

Yes, the U.S. The lead inventor said the research team had “experimentally demonstrated” that the “signal is intelligible.” As for the invention’s uses, an Air Force disclosure form listed the first application as “Psychological Warfare.” cryptome.org/rf-speech/rf-s…
The Navy sought to paralyze. The Frey effect was to induce sounds powerful enough to cause painful discomfort and, if needed, leave targets unable to move.

The Pentagon built a related weapon known as the Active Denial System, hailing it in a video. It fires an invisible beam
meant to deter mobs and attackers with fiery sensations. dvidshub.net/video/304622/s…
Putin,sought to recover the economic, political and strategic clout that the Soviets had lost (in Cuba) He ought to resurrect Soviet work on psychoactive arms.

In July 2014, Mr. Putin again visited
Cuba. This time he brought a gift — the cancellation of some $30 billion in Cuban debt. The two nations signed a dozen accords.

A Russian spy ship docked in Havana on the eve of the beginning of reconciliation talks between Cuba and the United States in early 2015, and did so
again in subsequent years. Moscow and Havana grew so close that in late 2016, the two nations signed a sweeping pact on defense and technology cooperation.
Weeks after Trump won the election, in late November 2016, the American embassy in Havana found itself battling a mysterious
James Lin paper ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/81863… said high-intensity beams of microwaves could have caused the diplomats to experience not just loud noises but nausea, headaches and vertigo, as well as possible brain-tissue injury. The beams, he added, could be fired covertly, hitting
“only the intended target.”

The wife of a member of the embassy staff, it reported, had looked outside her home after hearing the disturbing sounds and seen a van speeding away. A dish antenna could fit easily into a small van.
The medical team that studied the Cuba diplomats ascribed the symptoms to “an unknown energy source” that was highly directional. Some personnel, it noted, had covered their ears and heads but experienced no sound reduction.
