ESI Security Technology provides extensive consulting services, including the following:

Blast Effects Analysis and Mitigation

ESI Security Technology can be tasked to perform comprehensive blast analysis services to assess the performance of critical buildings and facilities in the event of a blast attack. The objective of a typical study is to perform security re-substantiation analysis in order to secure the building or facility and its surroundings against blasts. Such a study will evaluate the overall security performance in case of blasts, and propose practical strategies to upgrade/retrofit the current structure and site layout to mitigate the effects of a bomb blast.

Blast Loading on Structures

This service involves modeling and assessment of blast induced loads on structural components and facades for new buildings and existing facilities. To account accurately for effects of assumed threats in complex 3D topographies and their potential impact on buildings of interest, surrounding landscapes and structures are also modeled.

Structural and Human Vulnerability

ESI Security Technology software can address blast and fire impact and effects on structures/facilities and humans due to: single, concurrent, and sequential explosions. Using special models, fast (minute scale) estimation of thermal loads, blast loads, and combined thermo-blast load-induced damage effects can be provided. The models encapsulate blast ingress into building openings, internal blast propagation within a building and its structural damage effect, as well as progressive collapse of structures.

Target Hardening and Retrofit Design

ESI Security Technology can perform design of target hardening, analysis of structural retrofits, and assessment of human vulnerability. For a given building structure, a certain security envelope, and specific business practices, a comprehensive analysis of personnel vulnerability and business continuity can be performed for the entire facility and for each floor and occupied unit in particular. The software analyzes structure and human vulnerability, as well as human injury and life safety.

Life Cycle Cost and Benefits Analysis of Retrofit Options

Retrofits and target hardening measures should be optimized keeping in mind the business objectives. Obviously, personnel must be fully protected and any disruption to the business be minimized. At the same time, implementation and life cycle costs for selected retrofit scenarios must be carefully assessed. Different retrofit scenarios may lead to similar results, but with different implementation and life cycle costs. For alternative building security improvements, a cost/benefit analysis is used to determine if and when an improvement is affordable and/or cost-effective in order to set priorities for various improvement projects.

Security Evaluation Reporting

For the purpose of executive evaluation and discussions, ESI Security Technology produces comprehensive reports complete with Microsoft PowerPoint presentations and vivid 3D graphics. Compiled in response to the needs of security officers, these reports are generated automatically using software fully integrated with the computerized modeling and analysis packaged used.

Assistance in Pre- and Post-blast Analysis

Using special computerized methodology, ESI Security Technology can assist security officers to accurately and non-conservatively establish 3D layouts of exclusion zones in pre-blast situations. With scenarios such as a bomb threats or suspicious packages reported in a critical facility, ESI Security Technology can assist in estimating which areas of the facility would be most affected by the explosion and must be evacuated.

ESI Security Technology can assist in post-blast assessment to estimate the size and type of a bomb. This assessment is performed using a special computerized method and a set of models that consider deformations experienced by specific landmarks present in the vicinity of a blast.
