Scope. This handbook is to be used during the engineering design of Department of
Defense (DOD) facilities to ensure that engineers and security personnel select a vehicle barrier
system that will optimize performance and cost.
This handbook describes a process for selection and placement of vehicle barriers,
along with criteria for the design, selection, installation, operation, and maintenance of security
barrier systems, that will effectively stop and/or detect penetration by explosive-laden vehicles
through the perimeter of a protected area. These systems include both passive (e.g., static or
non-movable) perimeter barriers and active (e.g., operational for access control) barriers at
entrance portal locations. There are a wide variety of active commercial barriers and options
available; therefore, the material presented in this handbook is designed to support the selection
of systems offered by these commercial sources.
