Urban Security for Commercial and Public Institutions
Urban Security for Commercial and Public Institutions software is an Expert System that was developed to assist security officers in assessing the following issues:
- Analysis of blast and fire impact and effect on structures/facilities and humans in structures used by institutions
- Determination and design of mitigation means to increase structure's resistance to blast and fire emergencies, including design of structural retrofits and hardening of structure's layout
- Specific security-oriented tasks, including security of vaults and documents storage in the event of blast or fire emergencies
- Life cycle cost analysis of deployment of mitigation means that are provided to protect the institution's buildings and surroundings
USS software takes into account special features of the building structure as well as the protective measures taken such as construction of a protective wall of a certain height to protect it from blast effects. Life cycle costs of protective measures over various life cycle periods are estimated. The software models of the structure and blast effects can be used to take into account the effect of the protective measures on risk reduction in order to estimate reductions in insurance premiums.
