At Delta Scientific, we have been designing, manufacturing, and installing security products to protect against vehicle impact for decades. During that time, we carried out extensive crash testing to make sure our products are effective. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that every product automatically meets the needs of every customer.
Physical security and online security affect each other in different ways, whether positively or negatively. Integrating the two departments into one can therefore decrease security risks in both respects. The other steps involved in reducing risks include assessing what you have and formulating a replacement strategy.
Threat modeling is a technique used in software design to anticipate potential threats, identify vulnerable aspects of the system, and determine how to defend against them. Though used primarily in computer programming, the theoretical concept behind threat modeling could also apply to the design and implementation of physical security systems, such as barricades from Delta Scientific.
The role of security is to prevent threats to your facility from harming your employees, visitors, and assets. It is a crucially important function. Unfortunately, when security is inefficient, it can interfere with everyday operations.
Vehicle attacks come in different forms. Terrorists are always looking for ways to cause as much chaos as possible, whether that means coming up with new ways to destroy or repurposing old ways. Therefore, Delta Scientific has to keep coming up with products that can foil vehicle attacks. One of our newest products is UVLS100, Undercarriage Vehicle Inspection Lights, which work in combination with our barricades.
In a security context, the most obvious application for artificial intelligence is in guarding the computer system against online attacks. However, does AI have applications for physical security as well?
May 19, 2022 – Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that its DSC550 barrier which will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kph) has just met the criteria of the United States Department of State for continuous operations of 1 million cycles. The Open Frame DSC550 was tested from September 2021 through April 2022, outside, exposed to full sunlight and the effects of climatic conditions. Cycle rate on the barrier was three per minute.
Delta Scientific security products receive crash ratings from many different organizations. These include civilian organizations such as ASTM, military organizations such as the Department of Defense, and other federal agencies such as the Department of State. To determine these ratings, these organizations put our products through rigorous testing under real-world conditions.
