Abstract
TERRORIST/PARAMILITARY ACTIVITIES ARE ON THE RISE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. THE IMPLICATION OF THIS ENVIRONMENT FOR THE SMALL ICBM HARD MOBILE LAUNCHER PHYSICAL SECURITY SYSTEM MUST BE CAREFULLY ANALYZED. THIS STUDY WILL DEFINE AND ASSESS POTENTIAL PHYSICAL SECURITY THREATS TO THE SICBM/HML AND WILL DEFINE AND ASSESS COUNTERMEASURE OPTIONS FOR THREAT NEGATION. MASSIVE PROTECTIVE MEASURE, MILITARY ESCORTS, AND ELABORATE DEFENSIVE SYSTEMS ARE INCOMPATABLE WITH THE BASIC CONCEPT OF A SMALL MOBILE MISSILE TO BE OPERATED AT REASONABLE COST. NEW COUNTERMEASURE CONCEPTS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. INNOVATIVE NEW IDEAS ARE TO BE ASSESSED FOR THREAT DETECTION, THREAT ANALYSIS/ EVALUATION, AND THREAT NEGATION. FOR EXAMPLE, ONE AREA SURVEILLANCE IDEA FOR THREAT VEHICLE DETECTION IS TO SENSE EXISTING COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE ENERGY REFLECTING OFF THE THREAT. THIS AND OTHER DEMONSTRATED TECHNOLOGY IS SUGGESTED AS POSSIBLE TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER FROM OTHER APPLICATIONS. THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS AND OTHER NEW CONCEPTS IS TO BE DETERMINED IN PHASE I. A METHODOLOGY FOR THREAT ASSESSMENT LEADING TO SELECTION OF A CREDIBLE AND VIABLE PHYSICAL SECURITY PLAN IS ALSO DEVELOPED.
