Within PROCentrum International a team of specialists developed the PROSpike police stinger between 2014 and 2016 in its own right. 

Development first PROSpike police stinger

An intensive period of drawing, developing and testing resulted in the PROSpike 1500 series: a mechanical police stinger that was activated by a remote control. The 1500 series was introduced on DSEI 2015 (Defence and Security Equipment International) and became an instand success. Representatives of government agencies and distributors from more than 42 countries witnessed live demonstrations of the innovative police stinger.


Field tests and evaluations by end user(s) are closely monitored by our team of developers. Central to this monitoring process is further improvement of the PROSpike Stinger. The system was developed to make apprehensions safer and more efficient. In 2016 this resulted in the fully software-driven 1600 series. This innovation meant a significant improvement in the ease of use and durability of the system, as the Central Processor Unit relieves the end user.
