Bullets with GPS navigation will be included in the US police

StarChase GPS Navigation Bullet



GPS-guided bullets will track crime suspects for the American police, even if it sounds like a device description from a James Bond movie.

According to the developers of the new system, called StarChase, the device is primarily designed to secure the chase without putting the lives of all those involved at risk.

In the best traditions of spy fighters, the system starts when you press a button in a police car. After that, the cap moves away, and the bullet takes off to gain a foothold in the car racing ahead.

StarChase is already being tested in four states - Iowa, Florida, Arizona and Colorado, and the manufacturing company is thinking about introducing a new system in the UK. Installation on a police car will cost 5 thousand dollars, while each of the bullets will cost 500 dollars.

"The question of the rights of the individual"

Once the bullet is fixed on the car, the police can interrupt the pursuit, because then the guards can track the location and speed of the suspects in real time.

"This is an important tactic for the police. We already see the effect in such different situations as rescuing little girls from human traffickers and apprehending drunk drivers," says StarChase head Trevor Fishbach.

Leeds University lecturer Dave Allen, who wrote a report on the application of future technologies by British police, considers the futuristic bullet to be an interesting innovation.

"This is an interesting technology, and it has an obvious practical application. I think the prices [for bullets] will soon fall, and we will see how they are used everywhere and in the near future," said Allen Bi-bi-si.

But, the teacher adds, you need to think carefully about whether “technology for the sake of technology” is not used in this case. "There are other ways to track the movement of cars, and here the question of individual rights arises," the specialist said.

    Well, a good thing for the police and the FBI and other "freedom" providers.
    Grazing behind a wheelbarrow is a nice thing.
    In general, the thing is necessary, if only it wouldn’t be shot from the car, but rather from some kind of hand-held weapon such as a sawn-off shotgun (short-gun).

    That's right, another component for surveillance, not only is the whole world under a hood from pro-listening, so the natural question is: There are other ways to track the movement of cars, and here the question of personal rights arises.

      The rights of the hijackers, or, in general, criminals who are trying to hide from them at the request of the police? What figs are they right? And for those who are being watched by specials. services are still "bullets" in figs are not needed, they will insert a "beacon" into the car in advance, and it will not be noticeable at all by the way. so do not confuse soft with warm. This is a device for countering criminals.

      It would be even more interesting if something like this can be produced for the military. For example, it is scattered along the road and they themselves can stick to vehicles, identify them and tell their location. In doing so, exchange data with each other.

      That's right...
      Satellite navigation receivers are a capricious thing. The signal from the spacecraft is very weak. In addition, for "instant" detection, a stable reception is required, at least from 3 satellites. The signal from the emitter installed in orbit can be easily jammed using any high-frequency device. This property is widely used by car thieves. Therefore, if the criminal takes care of the presence of such a device in the car in advance, then these "bullets" are not afraid of him.

    The device is of course go. But, it would be better if the car - the taser was installed - by a remote, high-frequency discharge, to disable the electrician of the car.
    But they have the police equipped with specials. auto and special pribluda for her are developed and delivered, which in itself is correct, but we will put beacons on basins and put them into battle.

      I don’t know for sure, but almost all cheap beacons have a GPS tracker and a GSM module, which resets the coordinates to the receiver via cellular communication.

      During the chase? The shot will not be heard here, and so it’s clear that pneumatics. And the sound insulation in modern cars is good.
      Even if he realizes that he was marked, then what should he do. Looking for another car? Easier said than done.

    Now, thanks to these bullets in the ammunition kit, the patrol police themselves during the work time will not only be able to drink beer, but even donuts without the permission of their superiors.
    I offer a voluminous ammunition for the police. A spray can is fired at the object being chased. After undermining the ammunition, the suspect is painted in a bright, reflective color and all the glasses, too.

    note - the cars were transferred to an electric booster!
    Now the car can be shoved not only by a beacon, but also get into the steering control system!
    It all comes down to a single control system from outside the car!
    it’s easier to remove a person if the steering wheel fails, etc.
