Abstract
Stopping vehicles, which are potential car bomb threats or are simply fleeing a crime scene at high speed allows military and law enforcement personnel added effectiveness. Furthermore, the current option of high-speed pursuit adds almost as much danger as might be avoided if the assailant is subdued. For this reason, many local police forces operating on a purely civilian mandate have stopped authorizing such high-speed pursuit for less serious crimes for the public safety.This solicitation calls for a means for stopping uncooperative vehicles (those that do not intentionally which to stop upon police or military request), which can be exercised safely from pursuit aircraft or automobile. We propose to develop a system that does this by transmitting modulated microwave energy to the target vehicle that is tailored to disrupt the computation functions of the vehicle engine controller, thus stopping the vehicle.
