RHAZ: The Military’s Radio Frequency/Microwave Hazard Assessment Tool

By | November 16, 2006

RHAZ The Militarys Radio FrequencyMicrowave Hazard Assessment ToolA long technology wish list from the Airforce includes a device

to determine a radio frequency or a microwave device?s efficacy and hazard potential … based upon IEEE C.95, AFOSH 48-9 and DoDI-6055.11.

The directed energy bioeffects web site is very interesting. Image: “3-dimensional anatomical model produced from images from the Visible Human Project (National Library of Medicine). Voxels are color coded for over 40 tissue types and assigned dielectric values.” (photo credit)

If, “there is no scientifically valid basis for the existence of a linkage between cancer incidence or promotion and RFEMF exposure.” (link) then what other hazards of RF exposure resulted in the permissible exposure limits (PEL)?

“The Radio Frequency/Microwave Hazard Assessment Tool (RHAZ) would be valuable for health physicists, bioenvironmental engineers in government, industry, and medicine on a world-wide basis. Measurement of compliance for emissions from cellular phone towers is an example of an emerging commercial application.”
