Infrastructure Protection

Counter And Mitigate Threats

We empower customers to counter or mitigate a broad spectrum of global threats to personnel, critical infrastructure, facilities, and information. Our customers trust us because we provide cost-effective modeling, simulation analysis, engineering, and systems integration to manage their complex infrastructure-protection needs.

Overseas Security Installation Services

Our Overseas Security Installation Services (OSIS) contract supports DOS requirements. Through it, we install integrated security systems for 270 US overseas diplomatic missions. These include embassies, consulates, and liaison operations with international organizations. We design, install, and maintain intrusion detection systems, access control systems, closed-circuit television, and radio-frequency receiving/transmitting systems. This also includes C-UAS, biometrics, emergency alarms, mass notification systems, and alarm annunciation systems.

A Reputation For Excellence
The OSIS contract offers customers flexible, cost-effective solutions to dynamic program objectives and the agility to respond to contingency operations. Projects range from targeted upgrades on power systems, infrastructure, and fiber backbone improvements to addressing technical security system (TSS) vulnerabilities.
Our experience includes the following:
  • Executing up to 120 simultaneous projects in various stages of survey, design, logistics, installation/integration, and close-out
  • Installing more than 128 command and control systems; 13 operations centers; 7,500 security cameras; 3,600 intrusion detection sensors; 432 alarm panels; and 560 entry card readers
  • Supporting contingency operations requirements, including rapid response to urgent/compelling security events
  • Assisting with development of the DOS Diplomatic Security Operations Center Program
  • Assisting with development of the DOS DS Counter Unmanned Aerial System Program
  • Technical Security Upgrade Operations
    We proactively address critical life-safety issues and incorporate advances in technology to increase the security posture of overseas installations. Our expert team provides technical security upgrades (TSU) to modernize TSS and protect lives, information, and facilities, including the following:
  • Oversee TSU projects daily
  • Conduct site surveys
  • Create comprehensive computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) packages
  • Procure material and organize project logistics
  • Execute TSU installations
  • Conduct program analysis
  • Offer vehicle barrier technical support to the field
  • Develop workforce training
  • Administer the customer’s global-reaching SharePoint site
    Our TSUs include Marine Security Guard (MSG) activations and life-safety systems. Some examples of these systems are emergency notification, imminent-danger notification, high-definition security video, and power systems. This also includes supporting infrastructure and fiber backbone.
  • Systems Integration And Monitoring
    Systems integration and monitoring (SIM) leverages technology solutions for a flexible response to critical life-safety and mission-critical operation requirements. Our tailored solutions and on-site support provide consistent performance in dynamic situations.

  • Our technical security installations, on-site support, and C-UAS SIM services include the following:
  • Operations centers and enhanced regional security officer suite
  • Diplomatic security identity assurance system and supplemental authentication and monitoring system
  • Integration, maintenance, and repair for security systems, including field service representative and engineering service center support
  • Deliberate and rapid planning processes, including contingency planning, emergency action planning, mission analysis, and limited exercise design
  • Training for operations center staff
  • C-UAS system policy; interagency coordination; system design, testing, and evaluation; watch teams; and field service support
  • Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    We partner with customers to provide safety and security for personnel, infrastructure, and facilities from unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) threats. This is achieved through tailorable, scalable, and flexible analytically underpinned vendor-agnostic counter unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS) solutions. The full life cycle is supported from initial threat to requirements analysis, through operations, and into maintenance. Through strong partnerships with C-UAS and component vendors, we bring expertise in designing solutions for facility, infrastructure, and force protection. This enables us to select the right technologies to address our customers’ specific infrastructure-protection challenges.

    Full Life Cycle Support
    • Threat analysis and requirements development
    • Market research
    • Independent testing and verification
    • System-of-systems integration
    • Site planning and system installs
    • Operations
    • Maintenance and upgrades
    C-UAS As A Service
    • Full lifecycle support from threat and requirements analysis through installation, operations, and maintenance
    • Multiple models, including contractor-owned, government-operated (COGO); and contractor-owned, contractor-operated (COCO)
    • Continuous threat evaluation and modernization
    • Modular open systems approach (MOSA) enables solutions to be elastic and to scale (additional sensors are easily added to increase protected area coverage)
    Proven Technologies
    Our C-UAS Center of Excellence in Summit Point, West Virginia, provides us with great testing capabilities. We’re able to test, evaluate, and integrate a wide array of sensors and limited effectors. This is done against the full range of Group 1 and 2 C-UAS threats and Group 3 surrogates as needed. We plan, design, implement, and manage 150 security projects for Department of State (DOS) facilities worldwide, including advanced monitoring and C-UAS. Our work is performed under the Overseas Installation Support (OSIS) contract with the DOS. It includes the design, installation, and maintenance of physical security systems for Air Force facilities throughout the continental United States (CONUS). This gives us extensive experience in managing the complexities of supporting a military installation.
    Delivering Tailored Solutions
    Our MOSA-based solutions are tailored to site requirements accounting for terrain, obstructions, area coverage, and the location of critical facilities. This includes sensors and effectors compatible with the operational environment and nature of the C-UAS threat from Groups 1 through 3. The open architecture and well-defined application programming interfaces allow easy interfacing with external systems, such as FAADC2, ATAK, or early warning systems. We support effectors including radio-frequency (RF) jamming, control take over, capture, and a range of non-explosive kinetic (laser). Our C2 fuses data from all sensor modalities using advanced artificial intelligence/machine learning algorithms to provide a unified single pane of glass operator interface. Custom rules and decision aids reduce false alarms and minimize operator cognitive load.
