Solar Power for Anti-Terrorist Crash Barrier

December 26, 2003 [] Irving, Texas-based Integrated Security Systems (ISSI) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, B&B ARMR, has introduced a security product that can be powered with solar photovoltaic (PV) energy. The Model 850 is a portable and towable vehicle barrier, which is capable of stopping a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at 30 mph. Applications include foreign military bases or any place that requires rapid or temporary deployment of an anti-terrorist crash barrier. This self-contained unit can be powered with a vehicle battery 12/24 volts DC or solar power, 120 VAC. The detachable wheel assemblies and a trailer hitch permit rapid deployment. B&B ARMR said the product would be crash-tested within the next few weeks before it is added to the company’s existing product line.
