Marine Barrier Installed at USCG ISC, Alameda

Tuesday, January 17, 2006
Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. has completed installation of the WhisprWave Small Craft Intrusion Barrier (SCIB) at U.S. Coast Guard Integrated Service Command at Alameda, CA. 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 swinging gates pivot from WhisprWave's "Pivot Buoys" that are restricted to a specified watch circle so as to maintain a limited SCIB catenary. It prevents the barrier from impinging on the Federal channel and/or into the exclusion zone. Alameda is a city on a small island next to Oakland, California in the San Francisco Bay. The WhisprWave SCIB received permitting from all required Federal, State and Local agencies, including those specific to the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. The environmental requirements are considered the most stringent in the nation, but required no modification to the normal SCIB design. The total contract, in excess of $900,000, represents the largest completed contract to date for Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. (Source: http://www.securitypark.co.uk)
