    Abstract

    The use of audio to influence humans physically and psychologically has been utilised by the military as a means of non-lethal warfare throughout both the 20th and the 21st century. Though the military have not made a vast amount of research publicly available, evidence suggests that this is a vastly growing field that is constantly being developed and researched.
    This study firstly investigates and describes the military’s application of infrasonic, sonic and ultrasonic frequency ranges within non-lethal warfare techniques. This will examine the differing approaches used in order to provide context for the primary research collected within the project. The primary research will analyse the effect of infrasonic, sonic and ultrasonic military techniques, to provide evidence of it’s feasibility and an understanding of the psychoacoustic effects these approaches have on the human brain.
