Abstract:

The implementation of protective measures in base camp living quarter areas is one of the greatest challenges currently facing the Army force protection community. These areas are heavily populated with soft-sided structures used to house soldiers and civilians. Because of the dense layout and low protection levels, they have proven to be viable targets for terrorist attack. The United States Army Corps of Engineers USACE, Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC, has been heavily involved with researching solutions since the onset of this problem. Included below is a summary of activities conducted in pursuit of a solution.
