"QinetiQ has secured a five-year Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the US Military, for the supply of QinetiQ's Vehicle Lightweight Arresting Device (VLAD), the US military designation for the X-Net® system."
X-Net® is the only man portable, non-lethal vehicle arresting solution available today that has been extensively and independently tested and deployed internationally with military, police and security forces around the world.
Re-usable and very quick and simple to install, X-Net is available as either:
- a lightweight system capable of stopping small cars and medium-sized (up to three tons) trucks
- a heavy duty system capable of stopping large (up to 10 tons) trucks
Unlike vehicles halted by traditional tyre-puncturing systems, those stopped by X-Net cannot continue to be driven because of the unique 'spiked' design which brings the target vehicle to a complete stop, under control, irrespective of the standard or type of tyres.
