Purpose and Scope.  This handbook is to be used during the
engineering design of Department of Defense (DoD) facilities to assure
appropriate physical security is included.  The guidelines are based upon the
best currently available research and test data, and will be revised or
expanded as additional research results become available.  The contents
include procedures for planning and designing an integrated physical security
system for new facilities as well as the retrofit of existing facilities.
The focus is on construction choices for protection against forced entry, and
ballistic and standoff weapons.  Design procedures are also summarized for
vehicle bomb blast protection, referencing appropriate sources for details.
Cancellation.  This handbook supersedes Military Handbook
(MIL-HDBK) 1013/1, Design Guidelines for Physical Security of Fixed
Land-Based Facilities, dated 9 October 1987.
Using the Handbook.  This handbook is divided into eight major
sections and four appendices.  Sections 2 and 3 contain procedures to follow
during the planning and design phases of a project to assure adequate
security.  Sections 4 through 8 contain supporting detailed design data and
instructions.  The appendices contain physical security system design
worksheets. The content of each major section is summarized as follows:
Section 2 - Pre-Design Phase:  Specific requirements and criteria
for the security system are established during the pre-design phase.  The
section begins with a brief overview of DoD directives and instructions
defining physical security related planning policies and requirements.  This
is followed by a procedure to establish:  (1) the design threat, (2) the
operating procedures and expected alarm response times of the security guard
forces, and (3) other requirements and constraints that may affect the
security system design.
Section 3 - Design Phase:  The objective of this phase is to design
an integrated physical security system that meets the requirements and
criteria identified during the pre-design phase.  The section begins with a
discussion of the elements of a physical security system followed by the
definitions of certain key terms.  It then provides a step-by-step procedure
for designing the security system for a new facility or the retrofit design
of an existing facility using the detailed information in Sections 4 through
Section 4 - Exterior Site-Related Physical Security:  This section
addresses the design of the outermost elements of the security system.  The
exterior area involved lies between the perimeter of the site and the
facility containing the assets to be protected.  Exterior physical security
contributes to the effectiveness of an integrated security system design in
the choice of: (1) site layout, including facility location relative to
fences and vehicle barriers to enhance protection against forced entry, bomb
blast, standoff weapons and ballistic threats; (2) access control at site
points of entry to
