Abstract:

This report provides the Defense Nuclear Agency with information on the availability and capability of techniques applicable to the evaluation of nuclear weapon physical protection systems. It considers older methods still in use, more recently developed methods, and methods which are not yet fully developed. The report examines six assessment schemes which attempt global evaluations of a security system and twelve techniques which analyze specified attacks on a protected entity. A series of twelve tables compares the features and capabilities of the models. Observations on the possible utility of individual techniques, on security system modeling, on security system evaluation, and on the uses of security system evaluation techniques conclude the report.
