The objective of this paper is to show the need for a deeper, more timely involvement of behavioral scientists, and human factors and human engineering specialists in the field of physical security. The authors attempt to convince the sponsoring institution, the Defense Nuclear Agency, and applied research groups to bring their skills to bear on the specific and general recommendations presented in this paper. The three general needs that should be considered are to 1 Apply the large body of human engineering knowledge extent to solve existing problems being encountered in security operations where man-machine deficiencies are evident. 2 Include behavioral scientist participation in all stages of advanced security system development and continue analyses and guidance into the operational phase. 3 Develop a large scale testtraining facility for DoD wide use, free from operational encumberances of critical resources protection needs, to perform concept development and testing, procedures evaluation and equipment tests and evaluation.
