HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Earlier this week, the Houston Police Department (HPD) and multiple Houston-area news agencies witnessed the successful demonstration of two highly efficient and innovative products which can be used to aid in a safer, more successful termination of vehicle pursuits.
The NightHawk® tire deflation system was developed by Pacific Scientific Energetic Materials Company (PacSci EMC) to ensure police officer and public safety during vehicle pursuits. The NightHawk deployed from its stowed position, successfully deflated all four tires of the target vehicle and then retracted to allow plenty of time for the pursuit car to get through with no harm or damage - all in less than four seconds.
The company StarChase also showcased their technology, which allows police cruisers to shoot and attach a GPS device onto a fleeing vehicle.
Both NightHawk and StarChase will ensure many more officers are kept out of harm’s way while performing their duties.
