Highly Agile Command Deployable Vehicle Arresting System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
SHOT proposes an innovative vehicle arresting system designed for quick setup, unimpeded traffic flow, fast activation, and tremendous arresting power in a non-lethal manner. The proposed innovation uses cables, ground anchors, and an actuator mechanism combined in a novel way by SHOT's multi-disciplined engineering team to create a fast, strong, deployable system providing our soldiers with a valuable new tool. The proposed system is light enough for transport between locations in one truck. It can be set up in less than hour by a squad level detail. It is easily camouflaged. In addition, the "instant" activation provides a stand-off capability and easy adaptation to a variety of automated activation systems. Further, the innovation is designed to easily link together multiple units in stages for expanded width and/or depth. Side by side attachment expands the width for larger avenues. Staged in depth, tremendous arresting power can be obtained. Initially, the activated section appears un-daunting and minimal damage would be applied to a complying vehicle. If the barrier is engaged, the force of the vehicle is used to activate the remaining stages, much like a web would respond to intrusion. Hence, the concept is named the "Steel Web".
