Paper Abstract

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is developing survivability planning and protective measures for base camps. One component of Base Camp Protection/Survivability is sensor-based security. Security designs must cover many configurations, ranging from forward operating bases to the equivalent of fixed facility installations, and be adaptable to changes in mission or base camp layout. Initial emphasis is on identifying sensor systems, such as unattended ground sensors, which can operate reliably at an early stage of base camp development when an intrusion detection capability must be established quickly under austere conditions. Another consideration is portability, so that sensor-secured perimeters can be readily relocated as a base camp evolves in size or configuration. In all cases, security designs will include guidance on the selection, placement, and operation of sensor systems to avoid vulnerabilities that would result when terrain, weather, system performance constraints, and detection zone features and maintenance are overlooked or ignored during the planning and implementation of sensor-based physical security.
