WhisprWave Small Craft Intrusion Marine Barrier Installed at US Coast Guard Integrated Service Command, Alameda, CA
USCG Alameda Marine Barrier Installation is Largest Contract to Date for Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc
Sylvan Lake, MI – Dec 19, 2005 - Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. (WDT), a private maritime technology company has completed installation of the WhisprWave® Small Craft Intrusion Barrier (SCIB™) at USCG ISC Alameda, CA, effective December 14, 2005 . The patented floating marine barrier encloses a security zone of 2400 feet and incorporates two swinging gates of 725 feet and 825 feet to allow for movement of US Coast Guard Cutters into and out of the exclusion zone. The total contract, in excess of $900,000, represents the largest completed contract to date for Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc.
The swinging gates pivot from WhisprWaves'® proprietary “Pivot Buoys”, that are restricted to a specified watch circle so as to maintain a limited SCIB™ catenary. Their design prevents the barrier from impinging on the Federal channel and/or into the exclusion zone. The pivoting barrier security gates are the largest of their kind in the world.
Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. (WDT) has developed the patented WhisprWave® floating articulated breakwater technology to afford erosion control protection to shoreline beaches, coastal marinas, anchorages, and other areas subject to destructive erosion wave / wake forces. The Company's previous customers include US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), US Navy (USN) and the US Coast Guard (USCG).
Maritime Port Security Buoys and Barriers: To facilitate the security needs of the US Navy, US Coast Guard, US Army, US Army Corps of Engineers, other government agencies and commercial interests, the company has developed the WhisprWave® Technology line of Maritime Intrusion and Exclusion Barriers and Warning Buoys for Homeland Security and Force Protection. The unique characteristics of the WhisprWave® Homeland Defense Products include mobility, marine grade design and off-the-shelf availability for Homeland Security maritime zone demarcation applications.
