Site Design - 2 - Components
Many styles of fencing:
Anti-Climb / High Security
Most have limited ability to delay penetration
Can be used as a platform for detection sensors
Some can also be helpful in obscuring targets or even predetonating certain standoff weapons
2.2 Vehicle Barrier Systems
Barrier systems are used to defend against the moving vehicle bomb
threat. Of Two types:
Design is based on capacity to absorb or dissipate kinetic energy of
threat vehicle allowing no more than the maximum allowed penetration. Almost all systems are tested to prove performance. You should be weary of using any product that hasnt been tested
2.2.1 Passive Vehicle Barriers
Barrier is stationary and it is designed to prevent the vehicle from penetrating
successfully past barrier.
Sometimes incorporated into perimeter barrier / fence.
Insure Containment of Unscreened or Suspect Vehicles; only permit
access through access points.
Can often use topographical features as passive vehicle barriers.
2.2.2 Active Vehicle Barriers
Selection Based on Required Operational Performance and Site
Potential Threat Must be Quantified
Kinetic Energy - I.e. 15,000 lb vehicle at 40 mph
Angle of Approach
Barrier is Selected such that can Absorb the Kinetic Energy While Not
Allowing Penetration That Exceeds the Allowable for the Site
