TERROR BARRIERS INSTALLED AT BASES SECURITY STOPS INCOMING CARS.

Byline: Daily News

PALMDALE - Delta Scientific is installing counterterrorist vehicle- control systems at more than 50 U.S. Air Force bases.

Delta is in the process of fulfilling an estimated $25 million order placed by the government in May for 541 of the barriers, the largest contract ever of its kind.

The company, with headquarters in Valencia and its new manufacturing plant in Palmdale, is using its DSC501 barriers - ranked as ``very high security.'' The devices will stop and destroy a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling up to 50 mph.

The new manufacturing facility allows the company to accelerate production.

``With the opening of our Palmdale facility, we have effectively doubled our manufacturing space,'' said Scott Altizer, high security systems applications engineer at Delta Scientific. ``That means we are able to quickly fulfill even the largest government contracts, providing protection to air bases and other military facilities where it's needed most, in an extremely timely manner.''

Delta has similar large equipment contracts with the U.S. Navy. In addition, the company has supplied its counterterrorist barricade systems to more than 160 U.S. embassies and consulates in 130-plus countries, as well as those of the United Kingdom and other nations.

In the United States alone, Delta has secured more than 100 federal buildings, including courthouses and FBI locations. More than 85 percent of all U.S. nuclear power plants are protected by Delta vehicle barricade systems.

Delta Scientific systems protect the U.S. Capitol and other Washington landmark buildings; high-rises throughout the world; Broadway pedestrians in New York City; corporate facilities; the Singapore parliament; power and water infrastructure locales; European castles; and the private homes of celebrities and influential people in Beverly Hills and other wealthy communities.

Delta's three product lines consist of high-security vehicle barricade systems, parking-control equipment and guard booths. Delta Scientific has been engineering and manufacturing vehicle access control equipment since 1974 and sells its products worldwide.
