VIRGINIA FIRM THINKS IT HAS THE WAY TO END DANGEROUS POLICE PURSUITS
 
A Virginia start-up called StarChase will soon unveil a system aimed 
at taking some of the danger out of police chases by using compressed 
air to fire a epoxy-coated projectile at a fleeing vehicle, thus 
attaching a GPS chip set, wireless modem and power supply to enable 
continuous remote tracking.  Field tests will begin soon, and StarChase 
intends to officially unveil the system at next month's IAPC Conference 
in Miami.  (Mobile Radio Technology)
