Abstract: This Phase I proposal is intended to leverage a comparatively developed and new technology that is being funded by the Army. This technology can precisely target a vehicle with the precision of a designator laser and apply a voltage and/or electrical signal, capable of disabling electronics at a distance. It can effectively be considered a non-contact direct-injection electrical system, as well as an ideally-coupled radiative electrical system. The technology has been successfully tested on electronic equipment and is currently being scaled up. We propose this same method to stop uncooperative vehicles with minimal risk to vehicle occupants, law enforcement officers, and the general public. Our Phase I objective is to perform the necessary design and analysis to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing this technique to stop vehicles using patrol-car-based systems as well as with devices that can be deployed from air platforms such as helicopters. All of the pertinent practical considerations will be accounted for.
