Default X-NetŪ vehicle arresting system

Hi t-bhpians!

Was just watching this on Discovery channel. I thought this is a useful innovation. Just thought of sharing with you guys:

X-NetŪ vehicle arresting system

QinetiQ's X-Net - Protecting royalty and sports personalities during Athens 2004

Can such a system be used in India? What are your views on this?

Thanks!

It surely can be by the security agencies. And I'm sure they must be aware of this or a similar product and also might be using it somewhere, that we are not aware of.

There's a long way to go before our enforcement agencies wake up to this.

It is not like earlier days that the agencies take lot of time to adopt these things. Basic question: is this being used extensively anywhere successfully?

To give you an example, I am yet to see spike strips used by US police from as early as 2003, in India, 5yrs is a long time.

Our Military Commandoes didn't have IR goggles. What makes you think the local police force will get this?
