Abstract:

This study of physical security barrier systems encompassed a review of existing barrier systems, an analysis of the requirements for barrier components within a physical security system, identification of shortcomings, and development of potential R and D program areas to address those deficiencies. The objective of this effort was to identify barrier components needed to provide adequate physical security systems for securing and protecting US military personnel and equipment. To present an overview of military physical security barrier requirements to the community, to develop an understanding of the current state of the art for barrier components and systems, and to solicit ideas on how technology developed in the civilian sector might be applied to the military requirements, a surveyquestionnaire for industry was prepared and distributed. As an integral part to the development of an action plan for overcoming deficiencies in current physical security barrier systems, a brainstorming session was held with selected Government representatives expert in the field of barrier systems. Supporting analyses prioritized and developed potential program efforts for the resulting recommended DOD Barrier Applications System Plan of Action. Prioritized order for barrier program areas within the Plan of Action, include 1 Forced Entry, 2 Vehicle Approach, 3 Explosives, 4 Ballistics, and 5 Aerial Approach.
