Attendees in the physical protection group participated in practical sessions in KI buildings 116
and 106 where the Eleron ZIRCONIUM system is employed. They also received practical training
at Eleron on the EVRIDICA system that is employed on the land-based naval sites. The
following topics were included in the physical protection curriculum:
" legislation and regulatory basis for physical protection at the federal, ministerial, and facility
" terms and definitions;
" design and organization of physical protection systems (using as examples land-based sites and
floating platforms), including threat assessment and generation of theft scenarios, adversary
models, possible consequences and risk assessment;
" quality indicators and optimization methods for physical protection systems;
" integrated PP systems, including equipment certification;
" use of computer technologies in evaluating physical protection at Russian Navy facilities and
the role of human factors.
The second Russian Navy training course, Detailed Methods and Operations for MPC&A at
Russian Navy Sites, was well received by both attendees and the Navy command. The success of
this and the first class, Fundamentals of MPC&A for the Russian Navy, have resulted in plans to
repeat this series to another set of trainees with classes planned for the fall of 1999 and spring of
Activities at Kurchatov Institute
The two-course instruction series discussed above will be revised to reflect experience and
comments of instructors and attendees from the first presentations, and they will be repeated in
the fall and spring of 1999 and 2000 respectively. In the meantime, an update of the needs
assessment study is underway. As with any endeavor, with time come changes in conditions,
priorities, and perceptions. We learn from what we have done. Now is a good time to review the
assumptions and parameters of the original needs assessment and make whatever course
corrections appropriate. Plans are also underway for developing a specific course for inspection
personnel and possibly another for supervisory personnel.
MPC&A Training at Naval Training Center
Plans are underway and funds have been allocated in the FY2000 MPC&A budget to incorporate
MPC&A training into the curriculum at a Naval Training Center. This facility will become the
primary location for a sustained naval MPC&A training program. A full complement of training
hardware to simulate operations at the upgraded naval sites will be included.
The training center staff has prepared a report providing the details of the proposed program. A
comprehensive list of occupational skills has been generated. Five groups of trainees have been
identified and the skill mix required for each has been identified. From this matrix, five curricula
result. The overall training process has been described, and required equipment has been
identified. Acquisition of equipment will begin early in FY2000.
Here’s what’s next.
