Abstract / Summary
Thanks to imaginative design and engineering funded by the Small Business Innovation Research Office of DHS's S&T Directorate, the Safe Quick Undercarriage Immobilization Device, or SQUID was developed. When closed, the current prototype resembles a cheese wheel full of holes. When open (deployed), it becomes a mass of tentacles entangling the axles. By stopping the axles instead of the wheels, SQUID may change how fleeing drivers are, quite literally, caught
