Anti Vandal Roadblocker Vehicle Barricades- Heald
Road blockers are high security systems suitable for securing sites ranging from car parks to government and military. Hydraulically powered, the heavy duty construction will take the weight of road going vehicles and is available in widths of 1-6m and raise heights of 340mm to 1200mm. Activated by a wide range of access controls, the Roadblocker vehicle barricade is an excellent way to restrict vehicle movement within a site.

Top secret Iran hostage rescue mission aircraft
YMC-130H were three modified Lockheed Hercules Aircraft for Top Secret "Operation Credible Sport", for second Iran hostage crisis rescue attempt.
One of the measures considered for a second hostage rescue attempt in Iran was a project to develop a "Super STOL" aircraft, to be flown by Combat Talon crews, that would use a soccer stadium near the US Embassy as an improvised landing field. Called Credible Sport, the project acquired three C-130H transports from an airlift unit in late August 1980, one as a test bed and two for the mission, and modified them on an accelerated basis.
Designated as the XFC-130H, the aircraft were modified by the installation of 30 rockets in five sets: eight firing forward to stop the aircraft, eight downward to brake its descent rate, eight rearward for takeoff assist, four mounted on the wings to stabilize them during takeoff transition, and two at the rear of the tail to prevent it from striking the ground because of over-rotation. Other STOL features included a dorsal and two ventral fins on the rear fuselage, double-slotted flaps and extended ailerons, a new radome, a tailhook for landing aboard an aircraft carrier, and Combat Talon avionics, including a TF/TA radar, a defensive countermeasures suite, and a Doppler radar/GPS tie-in to the aircraft's inertial navigation system.
Of the three aircraft, only one received full modification. The program abruptly ended when it crashed during testing on October 29, 1980, and international events soon after rendered another rescue attempt moot.

Mercedes-Benz Actros - Active Brake Assist 2
Der sicherste Lkw der Welt wird nun noch sicherer: Mercedes-Benz führt im Schwer-Lkw Actros die zweite Generation des Active Brake Assist ein. Dieses vielfach preisgekrönte Sicherheitssystem kann jetzt noch mehr: Leitete es bisher vor langsamer vorausfahrenden Hindernissen bei Gefahr eines Auffahrunfalls automatisch eine Bremsung ein, so wird der neue Active Brake Assist 2 auch vor stehenden Hindernissen aktiv, etwa einem überraschenden Stau. Der Active Brake Assist hat bisher in mehr als 14 000 Lkw und über mehr als einer Milliarde Kilometer auf den Straßen Europas seine Leistungsfähigkeit überzeugend in der Praxis unter Beweis gestellt.
Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly," said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
