M67854·Q4·C-5074 The Peripheral Pain System. The detection ofpain begins with a complex set of peripheral afferents (nociceptors) that detect
and encode a great variety of stimuli. These peripherally encoded events are relayed by axons into the central nervous system
(spinal cord, thalamus, cortex) where the information undergoes the complex assembly required to produce a localized,
conscious perception ofpain (Cooper and Sessle, 1993). Nociceptive atferents detect tissue damaging or near tissue damaging
consequences ofmechanica! and thermal events, and the chemical events associated with actual tissue damage. To accomplish
these multilevel tasks, the pain system has evolved a family of nociceptive neurons with dive”” mechanical, thermal and
chemical response capacities. These capacities overlap in a manner that is not completely understood, but it is likely that they
vary for particular tissue sites (skin, joints, muscle, viscera, bone) that have highly specialized nociceptive requirements.
Recent advances in nociceptor characterization have permitted classification, In Vi/TO. ofatlcast 8 distinct nociceptive
phenotypes. Our laboratory has shown that sensory cells ofthe DRG are comprised ofdiscrete, internally homogenous, classes
ofcapsaicin (OC) sensitive (types I, 2, S, 7, 8 and 9) and insensitive (types 3, 4, 6) populations with distinct capacities to
respond to SHT, PGEz, protons, ACh and ATP (Martenson et al., 1994; Cardenas et al., 1997; Cardenas et ai, 1999; Petruska et
aI., 2000, 2002; Cooper and Cooper, 2001). We have used lipid soluble fluorescent tracers to define the specific distribution of
nociceptors into viscera, joints and skin. Preliminary studies have indicated tha~pu1ationsofskinin~

scalable, non-lethal to lethal force systems may be possible. Such a system would be useful in many
environments. Two systems currently under development, active denial and pulsed ener ADS and
PEP offer mainly complementary ca acities that could address multi Ie tasks

The full capability of these directed energy
systems (DE) are still being explored. At their current stage of development, each system has clear nonlethal
(ADS) and lethal (PEP) capacities suitable to the above tasks. Our experiments will examine the
feasibility of PEP as a new generation non-lethal wea on. Pulsed ener can be confi ed to roduce
lasmas of exce tionall hi ener
In the
studies described below we will determine the feasibility of using the plasma derived EMP to induce pain
suitable to disarm and deter individuals or form barriers to the movement oflarge hostile groups. If
successfully deployed, PEP could complement ADS in situations in which the latter is ineffective, less
effective, or rone to countermeasures. Many ofthe countermeasures that might be envisioned against
ADS offer opportunities for PEP targeting (via plasma induction or
ablation of the defense). Despite these potential advantages, certain special capabilities and features of
ADS offer advantages over PEP in many scenarios. Therefore, the systems are complementary.
The efficiency and lethality ofPEP weapons systems lll’0 straightforward. The non-ballistic, instantaneous properties ofDE
make precise tlll’geting a straightforwlll’d matter of line ofsi l. Terrific amounts of ener can be delivered over great
distances with pinpoint accumc . However, Potentially.
