The WhisprWave is a patented modular marine floating breakwater technology, engineered to provide shoreline beach erosion control, anti-intrusion barriers for homeland security, and survive deployment in the harshest marine environments. The WhisprWave was specifically designed in a modular format to increase the product's flexibility and facilitate future maritime applications. The modularity of the product makes it similar to LEGO building blocks.
The WhisprWave was designed for beach erosion control applications in the oceans competing with other shoreline erosion prevention products which were originally intended for the calmer waters and erosion forces of the inland lakes and rivers. The inherent strength of the WhisprWave offers distinct application advantages, as it is engineered to withstand the forces of the oceans' rogue waves and sustained winds of more than 80 knots. The base building block is a patented polygon shaped module. A standard module weighs approximately 36 lbs when empty. The module can be filled with or evacuated of water (with the help of a standard air compressor) to precisely adjust its buoyancy. In addition, the module can be "puncture proofed" by filling it with marine grade buoyant foam. The modules are connected using a system of EPDM rubber cables, marine grade hardware and stainless steel anchoring harness. All WhisprWave applications incorporate commercially proven marine grade anchoring systems, which vary based upon installation conditions and bottom strata.
The WhisprWave is currently installed, being demonstrated or being reviewed by several US based agencies for applications that range from Homeland Security / Force Protection to Beach Erosion Protection to Marina Wave & Wake Protection. The company has recently received a purchase contract from Naval Security Forces for the Port of Jebel Ali, in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) for 300 feet of WhisprWave large floating wave attenuator (LFWA).
