Applied Energetics Banshee C IED System Mentioned in Leatherneck Magazine

From the September 2011 issue of Leatherneck magazine, article “Thinking Outside the Box, The Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory” by author Maj Fred C. Lash, USMC (Ret)

"The Lab also sponsored the recent operation assessment of the first-ever directed energy weapon, the Banshee C-IED System. The Banshee supported more than 200 combat logistics patrols while in theater. In more than 15,000 miles, no vehicle that remained in a path cleared by the banshee was struck by an IED."
