Meridian to Focus on Sea Ports

Meridian's active gate deployed at a port

Meridian Rapid Defense Group is poised to assist The Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to strengthen our Nation’s maritime critical infrastructure. The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), a department of DHS, has established a Port Security Grant Program (PSGP) that directly supports maritime transportation infrastructure security activities. PSGP is one tool in the comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by FEMA and DHS to strengthen the Nation’s critical infrastructure against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks.

FEMA has already designated select, high-risk ports to receive federal grant money to improve their port security. Ports in California, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Texas and Washington have been deemed high-risk and have budgeted as much as $55 million for infrastructure security.

Meridian’s Archer 1200™ anti-vehicle barriers and Beam Gates have been successfully in use at the Long Beach and San Diego Ports since 2012., The Archer 1200™ is the most popular barrier for perimeter security. With its modular design and easy mobility, the Archer 1200™ enhances a port’s overall security system while maintaining the ability to react to changing needs.
