Abstract: Engineering Science Analysis Corporation (ESA) proposes a new stopping technology that is compact, scalable, and easily deployable. None of the current mechanical vehicle stopping technologies meet the requirements for small, portable highly effective vehicle-stopping devices. Any stopping technology must consider the kinetic energy of the vehicle being stopped. This means a large large truck can potentially exhibit more than 10 times the energy of a small passenger car. A stopping device must work over this broad range of kinetic energies. We propose a device that is a significant improvement over the current ensnaring technology in that it is not as sensitive to the kinetic energy of the entire moving vehicle. Our innovation is a small, lightweight, inexpensive device that can be readily deployed by ground-based personnel or from helicopters. Our innovation does not rely on stopping the vehicle by completely ensnaring it, rather, our device is capable of stopping a vehicle by ensnaring the smaller, lower kinetic energy, rotating components beneath the vehicle and rendering them immobile thus immobilizing the entire vehicle.
