    Trump's Border Wall Designs Are Public
    APRIL 7TH, 2017

    By: Mike Rothschild


    In March, the United States government solicited public bids for two different border walls with Mexico: a "Solid Concrete Border Wall" and "a Other Border Wall [sic]", the latter of which would seek to incorporate "a see-through component/capability ... that facilitates situational awareness."

    Each required the submissions to be "physically imposing in height," invulnerable to both climbing and digging, "aesthetically pleasing" (on the U.S. facing side), and "cost effective" to build and maintain. Much of these parameters echo Donald Trump's campaign rhetoric, which included calls for a "big, beautiful wall" that ranged anywhere from 30 to 80 feet high.

    Try tunneling under Trumps wall? Fire a round from a tank? Well yea, they have a defense against that also...



    DarkPulse Technologies, which touts itsborder security measures with the slogan: "They Don't Stand a Chance," submitted a design laced with fiber optic cable inside and underneath the wall. DarkPulse CEO Dennis O'Leary claimed that such precautions are needed, as there tunnels as deep as "80 feet" under the border. It's also built to withstand a direct hit from a shell fired by a tank, should such a situation ever arise.

    According to the story 730 designs were submitted..





    Clayton Industries, a Pittsburgh firm that "develops and matures existing technologies for the aerospace, defense, energy, material science, robotics, and waste industries" combined all of its strengths in one design. In a rendering seemingly made in MS Paint, they propose a wall that starts with a chain-link fence, backed up by a no man's land of "RF tomography sensor banks," and a 100-foot deep tunnel filled with drums of nuclear waste.

    [​IMG]CLAYTON INDUSTRIES/WALL STREET JOURNAL - WSJ.COM

    Crisis Resolution Security Servicessought to build "not just a physical barrier to immigration but also a symbol of the American determination to defend our culture, our language, our heritage, from any outsiders," by submitting a design influenced by the Great Wall of China which adds a graded berm to prevent climbing.

    [​IMG]CRSS/ WALL STREET JOURNAL -WSJ.COM

    As CNN reported, Gleason Industries owner Thomas Gleason said that he informed his design by speaking to "young people, some of Spanish decent," who told him that "if the wall is going to be built, they want it to be green." Accordingly, his design incorporates solar panels, and the company's statement said the design wouldn't injure attempted climbers ("except for the fall,") while withstanding all breach attempts.
