"High Energy Radio Frequency weapons (HERF) or High Power Radio Frequency weapons (HPRF) are weapons that use high intensity radio waves to disrupt electronics. They are a type of directed-energy weapon. They operate similarly to electromagnetic pulse (EMP) devices, by inducing destructive voltage within electronic wiring. They are usually directional and can be focused on a specific target using a parabolic reflector. Faraday cages may be used to provide protection from most HERF and EMP effects." - wikipedia

"A "non-destructive" weapon that incapacitates the enemy by beaming radio frequency energy is currently being developed by the Navy and systems engineering developer Invocon. The technology is called Electromagnetic Personnel Interdiction Control, or EPIC (too good), and it basically throws a wrench into a human's normal process of hearing and equilibrium, leaving them in a dizzy state of helplessness. Pretty epic, right? Results have been clinically proven to cause complete disorientation and confusion, with a side of extreme motion sickness. The Navy hopes for the weapon to effectively penetrate walls without causing any permanent damage, which would make for an invaluable tool in warfare for reducing casualties on both sides." - engaget.com
