Abstract:

A computer-administered security screening system called Military Applicant Security Screening MASS was constructed. The MASS system was designed as a stand-alone program that can run on IBM 286 computers already being used by Navy classifiers to make school seat reservations for applicants at the MEPS. The MASS questionnaire inquires about the following areas of security concern 1 alcohol consumption 2 allegiance 3 drug involvement 4 emotional and mental health 5 financial responsibility 6 foreign travel and connections 7 law violations 8 personal conduct and 9 security issues. These areas, and the specific questions within the areas, were developed by reviewing DoD security guidelines, evaluating existing paper and pencil security questionnaires and discussing specific issues to be included with security and legal professionals.
