SYLVAN LAKE, MI - Wave Dispersion Technologies (WDT) (www.whisprwave.com), a global leader in maritime security, announces the recent delivery and installation of four Marine Security Sign Buoys and two hundred and eighty linear feet of WhisprWave Small Craft Intrusion Barrier (SCIB) for the US Army Reserve Facility at Mare Island, Vallejo, CA. The facility, located on the western edge of San Francisco Bay in Northern California previously received a similar sized barrier in 2004. The new barrier doubles the size of the protected area and complements the original installation by providing warning sign buoys for the exclusion zone. This installation follows several recent port security contracts received by WDT including the Port of Jebel Ali, Dubai for the USN and Coast Guard Island, Alameda, CA for the USCG.
The company developed the WhisprWaveÂ® Technology line of Maritime Intrusion and Exclusion Barriers and Warning Buoys for Homeland Security and Force Protection. The Marine Security Sign Buoys (MSSB) are highly visible demarcation devices capable of withstanding harsh marine environments, yet lightweight for easy deployment and recovery.
The Small Craft Intrusion Barrier (SCIB) creates a Line of Demarcation, maritime force protection barrier. The SCIB was designed for the most adverse marine conditions, including winds of 80+ knots. Loads are carried by stainless steel cables encased in 2 inch EPDM rubber connecting cables. These same stainless steel cables create a significant maritime port security barrier to intrusions and/or entry by unauthorized, stray or threatening vessels.
