resolution of these issues tends to conclude with assessments of loss or
reduction of mission capabilities at the highest levels of concern and scale
downward to lesser consequences based upon the criticality of the assets to
be protected.
c)  Based upon the critical nature of the activity and the relative
consequences of various events posed against it, the more sensitive or
critical the asset, the more dynamic and potentially sophisticated the
threat(s) against it.  The corresponding security system design objective is
to build sufficient countermeasures to adequately control this range of
d)  The fourth factor influencing the design process is the
inherent capability of the site in terms of protection.  The various gaps in
its protection capabilities against the identified threat(s) equal its
vulnerability to attack.  The ultimate objective of the design process is to
minimize and control each of these vulnerabilities.
e)  Other factors influencing the design process are the
ever-present realities of cost, time, local resources and capabilities,
operational requirements of the activity, and a range of additional
constraints.  These can be the ultimate determinants of the final design
solution and must not be overlooked by the process.
3.2.2  Facility Sensitivity/Criticality.  Based upon activity criticality,
certain generic, top level categorizations of the range of USN shore-based
installations may be made as indicated in Table 1.  These are subject to
increased or decreased emphasis based upon the dictates of local or major
command policy and applicable facility security directives.
