In our constant effort to provide “Leap Ahead” force protection
solutions for integrated base defense, Vindicator is pleased to introduce a new
product designed to provide added security for aircraft and high value assets.
The new cable trap system is designed to provide a DOS K-12 rated barrier
stopping capability along taxiway gaps and aircraft parking areas at the touch
of a button.
Secure in seconds
The cable trap system has evolved from the DOS K-12 certified
RSS-2000 Automated Vehicle Bollard System which provides positive vehicle
control across any avenue of approach. The cable trap system remains flush with
the surface in the down position. Security personnel can move an entire
flightline from an open-taxiway condition to a closed-taxiway condition in a few
seconds. This system puts you in total control of aircraft and vehicle access at
The Cable Trap System is fully self-contained. It is housed is a ½
inch welded steel vault with 4’x 4’ x ½ inch removable square bollard posts. The
four K-12 rated barrier cables are lifted by the bollard posts providing an
instant elevated barrier for any length taxiway gap (400-600 ft). The bollard
post vaults can be positioned every 15 feet or they can be installed in custom
In the down position, the bollard posts are level with the
concrete surface and the cables are positioned in the 1 inch cable trough
allowing a smooth rolling surface for taxiing aircraft. The entire unit is
corrosion resistant with an anti-skid top surface.
This system is engineered to stop a vehicle weighting 15,000 lbs
traveling at a speed of 55 MPH. Installation is simple, requiring a pit to
install the self-contained vault with concrete poured around the perimeter flush
with the existing taxiway. In just a few hours, it is fully operational. In case
of a major malfunction or power outage, the bollard posts and cables can be
raised manually or with four-hour battery backup.
