Registered Phenomena Code: 008

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazard Types: Mechanical Hazard, Mind-Regression Hazard, Mind-Control Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-008 is to be held within Site-004’s high security containment vault. Testing with RPC-008 requires level 3 clearance or higher. Be warned that test subjects affected by RPC-008 may take on hostile and violent actions. The threat of an uncontained device similar to RPC-008 is marked as HIGH by Authority. Should any Authority personnel exhibit anomalous insanity or behavior, ASF should be deployed to research the potential uncontained device.

Description: RPC-008 is an electronically operated device composed of a ████ model electroencephalograph wired to a modified Yamaha MG 16/4 sound console mediated with a personal computer. RPC-008 is powered by a 12 volt car battery (35 amp-hour) or optionally, an external power source may be plugged in. A copper-██████ alloy antenna included with RPC-008 must be assembled in order for the device to work at range.

RPC-008 can be used to influence a person mentally. Various operations such as: inducing schizophrenia, altering brain stem functions, implanting thoughts or controlling the subject's mind are possible. A modified soundboard is used to operate RPC-008. When adjusted, the dials and buttons on the soundboard result in RPC-008 transmitting microwave signals of varying frequencies to a target's body. Microwave signals are conducted through the body and induce the activation potential of specific neurons across the cerebrum and brain stem.

The most effective way to manipulate a target with RPC-008 is by restraining the subject and connecting electrodes from the subject's brain to the device. Alternatively, using the copper-██████ alloy antenna, signals can be sent from up to eighty (80) meters. Obstructions interfere heavily with the signal, with the Site's concrete walls being sufficient to completely block the signal. The antenna can broadcast very effectively through drywall or plywood. At [REDACTED] behavioral center, several antennas were placed in the walls of the facility and wired to the main console which was operated from within an office cubicle.

When operated at range, the ability to manipulate a subject is imprecise. Subjects can be rendered unconscious, made aggressive, lightheaded, forgetful, or have implanted thoughts triggered. When operated via electrodes specific thoughts and visions can be crafted. Both PoI#582 and PoI#584 have declined to share how use the device. The methodology created by Dr. █████ Jefferson's team is to analyze the brain activity of one subject when exposed to stimuli and recreated it on the targeted subject using RPC-008. For example, if an agent wanted to make a target have visions of a deceased family member, the agent would expose a subject to images of the deceased and record brainwave activity and take an fMRI. The agent could then use the ranged function to incapacitate the target and restrain them in order to place electrodes. The agent then uses the controls on the modified soundboard through trial-and-error to induce a similar brainwave pattern as was observed in the prior subject. Information from the fMRI can show which parts of the brain to target. By using RPC-008 to influenced the target's hippocampus, they can be made to forget about the process of implanting, greater stimulation can remove recent memories programmed by failed attempts completely. After the programming, the target can have visions induced at range with a hidden antenna and also have schizophrenia induced to increase their likelihood of believing the visions. The Authority's understanding and skill with RPC-008 is still insufficient to be applied in the field. Thus far the only resisting subjects experimented on by the Authority were PoI#582 and PoI#584. Implanting the phrase "confess your sins" and reducing the target's acuity to a drowsy state have yielded little information through interrogation.

Thus far, two-hundred-and-thirty-seven (237) people are believed to have been affected by RPC-008 outside of Authority supervision. An additional twelve (12) have been tested on with Authority approval. PoI#582 confessed to using the device to brainwash asylum staff into allowing him and his accomplice to have full access of the facility and perform their experiments on patients.

Addendum: Engagement Report

RPC-008 came into the Authority's knowledge during Dr. █████ Jefferson's investigation of several insane asylums across the state of Oklahoma. Dr. Jefferson suspected that a memetic pathogen was contaminating the patients and causing them to develop paranoia of a mind control machine. ASF squadron 'Pallbearer' was deployed to assist Dr. Jefferson with the containment of the asylum patients when Pallbearer noted unusual interference with their communications equipment. More personnel were deployed to investigate. Field scientists correlated the patients' activity levels with the intensity of the interference. It was then determined that an external force was causing the cases of insanity.

Pallbearer traced down the signal to an apartment building in Norman. The address was registered as belonging to [NAMES REDACTED], the former being a recent alumnus of the University of Oklahoma with a B.S. in psychology, the latter a sophomore with no decided major. The apartment was found abandoned and vacated by the residents who had used it both as a home and as a laboratory. Under the disguise of US Marshalls, operatives retrieved the identities and license plate numbers of the suspects. Police in Oklahoma and neighboring states were informed that the suspects were defendants fleeing trial. Non-Authority police officers in Texas arrested the suspects PoI#582 and PoI#584. The police additionally confiscated the device now designated as RPC-008.
