Objective. The objective of this procedure is to
establish minimum environmental and attack resistance
requirements for system components to protect assets.
Application. There are two applications for system
analysis: evaluation and selection. For new construction,
either a new facility or planned retrofit of an existing
facility, the minimum requirements are incorporated into a
procurement specification. This is a selection application. For
an existing facility, system components are compared to the
minimum requirements to determine if replacement is warranted.
This is an evaluation application.
Protective Layering. The analyses used in this
handbook assume that security glazing is a component in a
protective system consisting of a single layer or shell. For
assets protected by systems consisting of multiple shells, this
assumption could produce conservative selections that are not
cost-effective. Refer to MIL-HDBK-1013/1A for guidance on
analyzing protective systems consisting of multiple shells.
System Analysis Procedure. This procedure provides
summary structures for the two types of applications: evaluation
and selection analysis. Figure 5 illustrates these structures.
