GSE Protected Facility solutions

Facilities can be protected from many types of blitz attacks from wheeled vehicles with a combination of horizontal and vertically emplaced GSE R-series speed sponges.

Access roads can provide transparent  access to vehicles which conform to existing security protocols of approach speed and vehicle weight. Yet vehicles which try to rush past security checkpoints, or which have excessive weight will automatically be checked.  Those vehicles which trigger the speed sponges can also activate other mechanical countermeasures, such as barriers.

GSE speed sponges are fully automatic, and automatically reset, which is key to many existing blitz attack strategies.  GSE speed sponges are available in 5 K ratings.

Speed sponge: K ratings:
K2 will stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at 15MPH
K4 will stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at 30MPH
K8 will stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at 40MPH
K12 will stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at 50MPH
K14 will stop a 25,000 pound vehicle traveling at 60MPH


The effectiveness of blast walls can be significantly increased with the placement of  wall mounted blast sponges.  GSE wall mounted blast sponges convert the energy of crashes or explosives into  channeled fluid or gas pressure.  Blast sponges can be either retro-fitted to enhance existing structures, for temporary or ad hoc facilities, or constructed as an integral part of new facilities.Advanced Traffic Management System,the Intelligent Transportation System ,Increase transportation system efficiency,Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act,SAFETEA-LU,Real-time traffic monitoring,Dynamic message sign monitoring and control,Incident monitoring,Traffic camera monitoring and control,Active Traffic Management,Chain control,Ramp meter monitoring and control,Arterial management,Traffic signal monitoring and control,Automated warning systems,Road Weather Information System,Highway advisory radio,Urban Traffic Management and Control,Livable Streets,speed humps,chicanes,curb extensions,Visual traffic calming,lane narrowings,road diets,bulbouts,Chokers,Road diets,Pedestrian refuges ,Speed bumps,Speed humps,Speed tables,Boom barrier,Vehicle activated sign,Watchman,traffic calming system,social engineering,Weather modification,Project Stormfury,Benign Weather Modification,Senate Bill 517,House Bill 2995,Senate Bill 517,House Bill 2995,Weather Modification Operations and Research Board,Senator John N.

Operational and installation notes:

Barrier construction:

Barrier are above grade, portable assembly containing a PHALANX TYPE Full Width Barrier

K2-K4:

Ramp hinged at both ends, raised and lowered by means of a Hydraulic Operating System. When the Barrier Ramp is raised to the guard position, it shall present a formidable obstacle to approaching vehicles. Upon vehicle impact, the force shall first be absorbed by the Barrier Ramp and then transmitted to the ground plate and inertia buttress.

The standard rising speed of the Barrier Ramp to a full guard position shall be adjustable within the range of 5-12 seconds. Lowering speed shall be within range of 3-15 seconds.

In Addition the Mobile speed sponges have:

  • a specific K crash rating

  • the ability to be towed by a 3.5 ton truck or less

  • 2 person Rapid deployment (within 30 minutes)

  • A vehicle drive thru opening of at least 16 foot

  • the ability to be set-up on concrete, asphalt, and dirt type roads without prior site preparation

  • battery Operation for standalone operation

  • Battery recharge capability via, solar array, local power and other local low voltage sources

  • operating modes include, full automatic, remote-hard line, remote-radio, card reader, key switch, local guard push button station, master(s) and slave(s) control panels... etc. - or by combination thereof.


Shipping: The Barrier system shall be crated or mounted on skids as necessary to prevent damage from handling. The shipping container(s) shall be of sufficient structural integrity to enable the assembly to be lifted and transported by overhead crane or forklift without failure.
