The Facility Intrusion Detection System will provide physical security protection for Department of Defense DOD facilities containing sensitive items that may be prime targets of organized criminal elements, insurgent organizations, espionage, or sabotage groups. A variety of sensor devices report intrusion conditions at remote areas to a monitor console via a secure data link. The protected areas may be the interior of structures or the exterior area surrounding these structures. Audio andor video surveillance of an area can be performed at the command console upon receipt of an intrusion alarm. Activation of deterrent devices can be initiated by command from the console when an intrusion is verified thru surveillance. Deterrent devices will delay the intruder in the accomplishment of his mission thus providing more time for response forces to intercept the intruders and deny intruder access to equipment or material which could be used by terrorist groups to threaten the response force of the local populace. The system provides flexibility for use in different types of areas as a result of variety of sensor types available, and the capability to provide a variable system command and control configuration. The sensors for interior applications include such types as vibration, ultrasonic motion, passive ultrasonic, passive infrared motion, duress, balanced magnetic switch and capacitance proximity. Controlled andor commandable devices in the remote area include entry control devices, audio surveillance microphones, voice communication devices, deterrent devices, video surveillance devices and special function devices.
