The need to implement security and antiterrorist measures to protect Department of Defense (DoD) facilities and structures has been clearly demonstrated. Uniform design criteria are required to provide reasonable protection, at a reasonable cost, based on the threat and the value of the asset. Therefore, an evaluation process based on risk and cost of protecting an asset against a threat must be utilized. At the same time, while the design criteria should be standardized, flexibility to adjust to a particular real world situation must be incorporated into the process. In addition, there is a need to acknowledge that there are some threats that cannot be reasonably countered utilizing design criteria alone.
As the result of these needs, a standard process to identify common design criteria, construction standards, and expected cost increases associated with implementing these criteria, has been established.
This 6 hour course is the second of two courses developed utilizing this UFC, and covers design strategies, master planning considerations, and project cost development associated with security and antiterrorist measures to protect Department of Defense (DoD) facilities and structures. The first course introduced aggressor threats and tactics, and examined the process for developing the design criteria for security and antiterrorist measures to protect Department of Defense (DoD) facilities and structures. The first course is a prerequisite for this course.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
