protect against covert entry threats; (3) exterior intrusion detection
sensors or guards to detect perimeter crossover points; (4) closed-circuit
television (CCTV) or guards to assess an alarm as a threat; (5) security
lighting to support the threat detection and assessment function; and (6)
other essential functions that must be maintained to support the above
elements.  Each of these elements is addressed referring to other sources for
more details when appropriate.
Section 5 - Building Physical Security Against Forced and Covert
Entry:  This section begins with a description of the threat severity levels
for forced and covert entry followed by an overview of the important elements
required to achieve an effective integrated security system design including
building layout, access control, interior intrusion detection system, and
CCTV.  Minimum prescribed DoD security construction requirements for vaults
and strongrooms; sensitive compartmented information facilities; and arms,
ammunition, and explosive (AA&E,) and nuclear weapons facilities are then
provided, including related penetration delay times.  For those cases where
the minimum prescribed designs do not provide sufficient delay relative to
guard response times, or when there are no prescribed designs for a given
facility type, see Section 5.5 (for new construction) or Section 5.6 (for
retrofit construction) for design options that achieve the required delays.
Section 6 - Ballistic Attack Hardening:  This section begins with a
description of the small arms and military ballistic threats and the general
hardening mechanisms by which they can be stopped.  Hardening design options
available for both new and retrofit construction are then presented.
Section 7 - Standoff Weapons Hardening:  This section begins with a
description of the standoff Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) threat and the
general mechanisms by which RPGs can be stopped.
Hardening design options
available for both new and retrofit construction are then presented.
Section 8 - Bomb Blast Hardening:  This section summarizes the
design approach for hardening against vehicle-transported bomb blast effects
for both new and existing construction.
