ABSTRACT

Border Security Analysis Between Ports of Entry   [open pdf - 902KB]

"We discuss the application of systems analysis tools and techniques to the development of counters to WMD smuggling across borders between legal ports of entry. This specific problem space is a mixture of threats, terrain, defensive technologies, and both smuggler and border enforcement tactics -- all of which are subject to analysis. Various analytic techniques have been combined into a set applicable to border enforcement operations. This analysis leads to selection of specific Border Security solution sets which are then tested in a virtual test bed. We show an example illustrating employment of these techniques on a segment of the Iraq-Iran border."
