Case Studies

background

 

Kontek Industries has installed some of the world's most technologically advanced security enhancements and critical infrastructure protection products for the U.S. government and the private sector.

  • NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    CHALLENGE:

    Faced with a seemingly impossible mission: design, manufacture and install state-of-the-art perimeter security for 12 nuclear power plants in nine states within 90 days, Kontek Industries rose to the challenge. (In April 2003, the NRC issued three security orders that mandated nuclear power plants to implement more stringent security measure by October 29, 2003).

    SOLUTION:

    In an unprecedented 90 days, Kontek Industries designed, manufactured and installed 6,000 state-of-the-art delay access barriers in 12 nuclear facilities in nine states ahead of schedule.

    RESULT:

    Mission completed. All 12 nuclear facilities in nine states met the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Oct. 29th deadline. The installation of state-of-the-art critical infrastructure protection products increased the nuclear facilities' defensive capabilities against attacking forces. All 12 facilities were extremely pleased with the high quality, on-time performance of the company.

  • LAWRENCE LIVERMORE NATIONAL LABORATORY AND SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES

    CHALLENGE:

    How do you protect two of the nation's most secure and important national security facilities, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory* and Sandia National Laboratories** from unknown homeland security threats?

    SOLUTION:

    Kontek Industries designed, manufactured and installed the world's most technologically advanced and proven perimeter security enhancements.

    RESULT:

    Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories have increased their defense capabilities to the highest level to ensure the U.S. nuclear arsenal is safe, secure, reliable, and can fully support our nation's deterrence policy. Both facilities were extremely pleased *(A Livermore, California based national security laboratory operated by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration) **(An Albuquerque, New Mexico based national security laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration).

  • WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE

    CHALLENGE:

    How do you replace the "Spirit Security Enclosure" at Whiteman Air Force Base, with a comprehensive security system that controls base entry and exit?

    SOLUTION:

    Kontek Industries has been awarded the contract; work at Whiteman is expected to be completed this summer. The scope of the project includes installation of a new "Spirit Security Enclosure," the world's most technologically advanced and proven bullet rated, steel-framed security enclosure , ID checkpoints, removable bollards and smart gate vehicle barriers.

    ANTCIPATED RESULT:

    Entry into and exit from Whiteman Air Force Base, the home of the 509th Bomb Wing, which operates and maintains the Air Force's premier weapon system, the B-2 bomber, will be more efficient and secure. The base will seamlessly raise its threat protection capabilities to the highest level.

  • UNITED STATES AIR FORCE

    CHALLENGE:

    How do you protect critical weapons stored at U. S. Air Force Air Combat Command Long Range Bomber Bases without drawing additional attention to them in the process?

    SOLUTION:

    Location, location, location. After much analysis, Kontek Industries manufactured and installed, in unique positions, over 1,500 massive modular blast barriers to the U.S. Air Force Electronic Systems Center's Force Protection Command and Control Program Office for Air Combat Command Long Range Bomber Bases.

    ANTCIPATED RESULT:

    The defense capabilities of the USAF Force Protection Command and Control were increased. Specifically, critical weapons bunker doors at Air Combat Command Long Range Bomber Bases were protected from massive blasts and shoulder fired linear threats. The USAF was extremely complimentary of Kontek's performance on this project..
