PEVS system demonstrated for distinguished visitors
A car drives across the Pre-Emplaced Electric Vehicle Stopper to demonstrate its non-lethal stopping method on Feb. 13 in front of Tinker Air Force Base, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Ellsworth Air Force Base personnel, as well as members of the DOD Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate and a representative from Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe’s office. Besides PEVS being a non-lethal, scalable way of stopping unauthorized vehicles at entry control points, it is also a lower-cost and easier to maintain system. After a six-month pilot program at Tinker, the PEVS system may continue its trials at extreme cold weather and desert locations. (U.S. Air Force photo/Kelly White)
