Abstract:

Current entry control points ECP on Scott AFB do not meet the standards specified in Unified Facilities Criteria UFC 4-010-01, DOD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings. AIL U.S. Department of Defense DOD installations are required to seek effective ways to minimize the likelihood of mass casualties from terrorist attacks against DOD personnel in the buildings in which they work and live. While terrorists have many tactics available to them, they frequently use explosive devices when they target large numbers of DOD personnel. Most existing DOD buildings offer little protection from terrorist attacks. By applying the standards provided in UPC 4-010-01, Scott AFB would become a lesser target of opportunity for terrorists. Therefore, Scott AFB is proposing to modify existing structures and construct new access lanes and facilities at 1he main ECPs of Scott AFB that would improve gate security. personnel safety, and reduce traffic congestion while maintaining access control requirements to meet the standards specified in UFC 4-010-01 .
