    White Paper-Jamming at the Gate, Part Three

    We have now looked at offensive planning (Part One) and at defensive planning (Part Two), and we have discussed vehicle inspection, blast resistant modules (often Ballistically uparmored) or use as control rooms, and at data acquisition in large complex systems. How can it all be tied together not just in an Integrated Security Plan document but also how the architect of the entire system might leverage one aspect and/or another to create a cost effective and quickly integrated system for a client/command. We also discussed securing SCADA nodes and everything discussed in that posting applies as well. Basic architecture considerations include: HardenedContinue Reading

    White Paper-VTI: Data Acquisition and Functional Test

    When KTC has to secure a large perimeter or build and deliver systems which incorporate large complex units or units with subsystems which – if handled improperly or allowed to operate off spec – can injure or kill people (such as very high power x-ray systems), we must instrument the perimeter, the complex unit or the subsystems so that we can monitor, continuously, all aspects of the perimeter or unit. To do that we must employ proven data acquisition (DAQ) systems. Systems which track movement, temperatures and pressures, state-of-health of the instrumentation itself and so on. KTC searched variousContinue Reading
