WDT Awarded Contract for SCIB

Monday, September 29, 2003
Wave Dispersion Technologies (WDT) announced today it has received a contract from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for the delivery of two WhisprWave® Small Craft Intrusion Barriers (SCIB) to be installed at Dams in separate Illinois’ lake locations. The SCIB is designed to demarcate the marine port and/or dam security zone and impede hostile small crafts from penetrating it. The SCIB's modular construction is engineered to allow its use as a platform to mount a multitude of security technologies including, warning signs, surface detection units, anti-intrusion instruments, fibre optic sensing systems, swimmer detection devices and capture nets both on the surface and underwater. One of the specification requirements, for the USACE contract states that the Barrier must be able to withstand waves of up to five feet high. WhisprWave®’s SCIB design and application allow it to withstand very large waves and sustained winds of more than 80 knots. The Whisprwave®’s strength was recently demonstrated, at Norfolk, Virginia, during Hurricane Isabel, when the SCIB deployed at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek suffered no damage from the Hurricane’s fury even though it was subjected to sustained winds of 80 knots and gusts of more than 95 knots. “We have now received our third contract for the WhisprWave® floating breakwater and barrier technology in the past 30 days and expect to close on additional contracts over the next 60 days. The diversity of the products and the wide range of applications from erosion control to Homeland Security are being validated by the range of customers currently purchasing our products. We are experiencing an especially strong global demand for the marine security applications,” stated CEO Dennis Smith.
