Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, recently announced that on June 24-25 over 150 government officials, security professionals, integrators and contractors came together at Delta's Fredericksburg office to view anti-terrorism barriers, bollards, crash-rated gates and other equipment, including new products. Visiting an average three to four hours apiece, attendees at the inaugural Delta Equipment Demonstration viewed equipment in action, stayed for training and networked.

"Attendees told us that they especially appreciated us setting up networking opportunities between users, integrators and contractors so that they could work together on future projects," reports Keith Bobrosky, Delta Scientific sales manager. "Government project managers took advantage of the opportunity to bring their engineers to the event so that they could actually see the products they specify in action and get additional training on them.”

"Attendees asked that we do this event twice a year, the next time on the West Coast," Bobrosky adds. "As a result, we will do a second Delta Equipment Demonstration and Networking Event sometime in the late winter at our headquarters facility in Palmdale."

"Attendees told us that they

opportunities between users,
integrators and contractors so

on future projects"

At the event, State Department employees especially were intrigued with the new Delta HD300, available with either a fully electric or hydraulic control unit, that will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kpm). Upon impact, the barrier remains in its foundation and the opening stays blocked, providing a multiple hit capability. In its M50 crash test, the HD300 completely disabled the test vehicle, causing severe damage to the occupant department and power train. The maximum penetration recorded was an outstanding -1.8 m on the passenger's side. A P1 penetration rating was given because the penetration beyond the protected side of the barrier was less than 1.0 m at the lower leading edge of the test vehicle's cargo.

Another popular product highlight was Delta's touch screen monitor which was integrated with all ten vehicle access control systems demonstrated at the event.  It provides multiple user levels that lets individuals review images from cameras at each of the barriers. Emergency Fast Operation (EFO) can be captured and recorded for later analysis while audits on when the barrier was deployed and by whom are available with a touch of the screen.

In the United States alone, Delta Scientific secures over 110 Federal buildings, including courthouses and FBI locations. Delta also provides vehicle access control for over 160 U.S. embassies and consulates in 130-plus countries as well as those of the United Kingdom and other nations. Recently, Delta barricades at the United States Consulate in Herat, Afghanistan, stopped a bomb-laden car and SUV from penetrating the entrances to the facility. The Taliban attacked the consulate in western Afghanistan with car bombs and guns, killing at least four Afghans, but failing to enter the compound or hurt any Americans. The two drivers of the explosives-filled vehicles did not survive.
