Delta Scientific Corporation

Delta Scientific, a renowned manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, announced that, on June 3, 2019, when a man couldn’t produce credentials at Mayport Naval Station, he gunned his engine and attempted to enter. The security staff activated their vehicle access barrier, a Delta DSC501, to pop out of the ground.

The vehicle crashed into it and was brought to a standstill. The violator was taken to the hospital and died two days later. Eight days later, on June 11, a man, driving a Ford F-350 truck, also tried to get on base. Again, the DSC501 popped out of the ground and the attacker collided with it where the truck was stopped in its tracks. The violator was arrested and is now facing state and federal charges.

Preventing potential attack

The Delta DSC501 is able to survive and operate after a 1.2 million foot pound impact"

“This high security barricade was originally designed for the U.S. Navy and has also been selected for use at U.S. Embassies, among many others. Set in a foundation only 18 inches deep, the Delta DSC501 is able to survive and operate after a 1.2 million foot pound impact,” attests Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

“In testing, the DSC501 not only stopped and destroyed a 65,000-pound (5.4 million foot-pounds) dump truck but the barricade continued to stand, preventing a potential second attack.”

Fibre optic communication lines

Its K12/L3 certification meets the government’s highest levels. With its shallow foundation and aesthetic design, this anti-terrorist barricade obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. The DSC501 is suitable for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils.

What is the role of manufacturers in providing after sales support?
