This is the ArrestNet by PacSci EMC, a non-lethal vehicle arresting system, or a high-strength net that is remotely deployed and halts vehicles during a high-speed chase. It can also be used for controlled capture for wrong-way drivers, checkpoints, pursuit management, entry control points, combat operation points.
In less than three seconds, this heavy-duty net, equipped with tire-penetrating barbed spikes, deploys into the pathway of a target vehicle. Gas bottle pressurizes the deployment hoses and at the same time the kicker drives the net and carrier into the road. As the vehicle drives over the super-strong net, it entangles the front wheels of the vehicle and safely brings it to a controlled stop.

This halt is not as “violent” and dangerous as slamming on the brakes would be. This effective and lifesaving ArrestNet gives the operator the option of “escalation of force to non-lethally end a pursuit.”
