Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Systems Effectiveness Model (SEM)

Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Systems
Effectiveness Model (SEM)

Showing the impact of technology and tactics on Measures of Effectiveness (MOEs) associated with protecting against and minimizing damage from terrorist attacks on U.S. Navy bases.

Metron’s ATFP Ashore Navy systems effectiveness modeling was developed between 2005 and 2007 to assist in the procurement process for Navy facilities. It provides top-level measures of effectiveness for systems-of-systems to be rolled out for each Navy installation, with probability of protection of critical assets and protection of mission critical personnel, and time to restore full mission capability.

Significant model components

Significant model components:

  • Blue tactical picture models sensor feeds to regional command center
  • Asset allocation algorithms respond to information in blue tactical picture
  • Asset properties are modeled using standardized measures of performance
  • Any sensor or defense mechanism may be modeled, given that it has measures of performance values
Entry control point model

Entry control point model:

  • Developed to study vehicle borne IED at access gates
  • Ability to construct customized gates allows for flexible studies that may be adapted to various installation configurations
  • Model also allows for analysis of traffic flows at peak and off-peak travel times
  • May run as a standalone application or linked to the ATFP systems effectiveness model
