Southern Security Border Wall Prototypes Under Construction…

The first set of eight border wall prototypes are under construction.  The Daily Mail has an article showing drone footage from the area and a few of the prototypes competing for border wall contracts. –SEE HERE– The first four contracts to build the prototypes were worth $400 to $500 thousand each and are targeted toward “concrete and reinforced concrete” prototypes.

There will be four additional prototypes using alternate material.   The second set of prototype contracts will surround “alternative material” concepts.  USCBP previously announced awarding four of those contracts in a similar fashion.

Each segment of prototype is thirty feet wide and thirty feet high (30′ x 30′), and will be the backdrop of a 150 foot wide border enforcement zone.

As described, the current “bollard style” border fence will remain, and various additional segments will continue to be built. The contracts for the new border wall will be placed 150′ behind the immediate border fence, and the distance between the two physical structures will be the “enforcement zone”.

REMINDER – December 2, 2015: At a campaign rally in Manassas, VA, a little boy asked Donald Trump ‘What will the wall you are building be made of?’ Trump then brought the boy on stage and let him ask the question again before answering it.  WATCH:

    Looking good.
    I guess they don’t have to make the prototypes very wide.

    Let’s hope these competing companies aren’t sabotaging each other.
    Keep it friendly, guys.

    At long last a challenge for the best wall and then we need to build another one on our northern border! Great to have choices so I am sure each company will work hard and long to give us the best wall they can. Nothing like good competition, especially in this serious matter.

    Hey, if anyone out there is listening, I suggest that the wall should be a bit more aesthetically pleasing. Is there any strong, reflective material that can be used to make it mirror the sky or the desert?

        FInally a comment with “common sense”

        Spot on. I have contended that it HAS TO BE A WALL because if we end up with another globalist a “a la” Bush / Clinton / Hussein et al they simply have tell the border patrol to stand down and voila another major wave of 16 yr old to 27 year old “children” from Central an South America invade again then comes DACA / PACA 2!!!

        And as some have noted here land mines or any type of lethal armaments would kill border security politically so fast we may end up with MORE illegal immigration.

        Grateful for some common sense here.

      I say build a wall and in the more rural areas have the feds put nests of Africanized honey bees. Those will chase people for a 1/2 a mile. When a coyote approaches with some of his “clients”, you send a small drone to buzz the nest and then fly towards the people. Then just let nature take its course.

      Small American made wind mills could draw up ground water to water some wildflowers for the bees to feed.

      The feds could pay exterminators that remove the nests a couple of hundred bucks for the bees, instead of it costing time and money for the exterminator to destroy them.

      Win win.

      Everyone here needs to understand that anything NOT permanently built can always be thwarted later by left wingers and other assorted anti-Americans.

      A phsical wall, and hopefully solid foundations and sub-foundations would need to be bulldozed. Much harder to destroy. Drones and other electronic devices are fine but just support.

    ISRAEL has a lot of experience with how deep and long tunnels can be:

    ”One tunnel discovered by Israel last year was 66 feet deep and 1.5 miles long. For Israel, the below-ground equivalent of the Iron Dome anti-missile system — tunnel-sensing seismic monitors and algorithms — is far from being deployed. Geologists argue that combating tunnels can be solved through technological innovation but are not “rocket science.”

      So, according to the article, for the local geology, the tunnels were 66 LF deep and whatever in length.

      That means to me, depending on the local geology, we would need anywhere from 2 to 6 stories of sub-basement level heavy impenetrable fill. Anyone know of a heavy material that could not be tunneled, that could be used as deep fill?

    I remember former Governor Perry(R-TX) mentioning 60% or so of all illegal crossings happen in a 150 mile or so area of Texas border. Thats a good thing to keep in mind when someone like General Kelly mentions the need to focus on population centers for wall. People are not crossing in mass through deserts with no city etc to blend into(human smuggling)…There is strategy to this and a continuous Wall is ludicrous,impractical and the stuff of fantasy…

    You would use a wall where necessary and it also acts as a funnel, which modern technology and a beefed up border patrol can police effectively.

    There appears to be a new policy being developed for Visa holders who overstay as well..That is a much bigger numerical problem it seems. We also need to stop chain migration obviously..

      We heard all of that “ludicrous and impractical ” crap before the election and voted for Trump anyway , thank you very little. Certainly we start where it’s most needed, but we don’t stop with it half-built to serve only as a “funnel” because, in case you haven’t noticed it, 3/4 of our elected officials want illegal immigration to continue unabated – including that smarmy little prick from Janesville Wisconsin. We could funnel all of the illegals right through a Border Patrol office and the next president could order them to hand out cookies and voting ballots. We need to continuous Wall because even another Obama wouldn’t have the cajones to tear down an already built wall.

      Trump has said on number ours occasions that you don’t need a wall along the entire border due to topography as a natural barrier. You are correct that much of illegal immigrants are visa overstays and new methods are designed to minimize people who get visas with the intention of not returning to home countries.

    Walls around cities are good. if the walls are study and the people unified to defend them. But…The bigger they are the harder they fall. Reinforced concrete will have an argument with an EQ. The EQ will win if Tetonic plates bang into themselves in jolts and shakes. If the plates move together, clockwise, smoothly along like a river, the land above rolls like a river and buildings built to “EQ codes” might survive. With repairable damage. Which kind of Quake will it be? Which wall shall we build?

    • That’s what I was wondering. Can the wall withstand an earthquake & of what magnitude?

      The naysayers have lots articles out about how the project is impossible because of acidic soils that will leach the metal and rivers that change course and earthquakes. I think, just like building the railways, you deal with the issues as they emerge, because we need to have control of our boundaries to have a Nation.

    Hope provision is made for retrofitting added height and depth to further deterrance. I see having a sort of rail set for 3-d concrete printing added height just left as the base for the solar panels. As technologies for getting over improve, so must counter measures. Without human rights violations. Drones for grabbing and returning rather than shooting. Just some thoughts.

      The shorter bollard wall along the actual border is see-through so you can see who is approaching and/or doing what.

      The walls beings discussed here are 150′ back from the bollard wall. We’ll have armed people, vehicles, sensors, etc. running around in the area between the two walls. We don’t necessarily need to SEE through the taller wall because we will actually BE on its other side in the enforcement zone.

    All walls can be defeated somehow. Cheaper solution: 8′ cyclone fence with warning signs in 120 languages and braille, plus loud-speakers with warnings, including for radiation hazard. 20′ dirt gap. Second 8′ cyclone fence. Contaminate the soil in the gap area with mild radioactivity. 100′ in, have sensors linked to Border Patrol dispatch. Catch invaders, give iodine pills, return whence they came. Cost would be about 1% of the giant wall concept. Weakness: non-human critters?

    Building prototypes, evaluating them, competition is all fine and good. But shouldn’t the details of these walls be kept somewhat confidential? I mean building the prototypes right across the border where construction methods, materials, etc. can be monitored? Seems a little stupid to me. Sure, let’s build a new type of safe for banks and then publish the specifications and material list? The criminal cartels and gangs are not stupid.
