Case Study

US Army Corps of Engineers
Vandenberg Air Force Base, California

Lompoc, california
Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) is situated around Lompoc, California on approximately 98,000 acres of land. The installation is about 150 miles northwest of Los Angeles, and is presently operated by Air Force Space Command’s 30th Space Wing. VAFB is the only military base in the United States from which unmanned government and commercial satellites are launched into polar orbit. It is also the only site from which intercontinental ballistic missiles are test fired into the Pacific Ocean, and splash down at the Kwajalein Atoll within the Marshall Islands.

Project 1:
ISS performed two projects at VAFB. In the first project, VAFB needed to upgrade its existing security system as well as integrate new components for both launch faciilities, perimeter, commisary and childcare facilities.

ISS upgraded the existing system on 8 sites, previously installed by ISS; then designed, engineered and installed an integrated security system for both physical and electronic security in additional facilities including the commissary, childcare facilities, and additional launch sites.

Project 2:
This project comprised of two facilities on which Integrated Security Solutions, Inc. (ISS) performed all the security work to provide a fully functional and operational integrated security system, integrating with existing ESS equipment in eight other facilities, which ISS had previously installed in 2004.

ISS installed a turnkey integrated security system at VAFB for the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense Program. The facilities involved are the RIDT-2 (Relocatable In-flight Interceptor Communications System Data Terminal) Phase 2 Building, and Launch Facility 24. These help provide for the nation’s missile defense program.

Included in the installation was a fully integrated, remotely operated electronic security system consisting of Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Access Control Systems (ACS), Fiber Optic Data Transmission Media (DTM), Closed Circuit Television System (CCTV).

As the integrator for the system, we installed the interior sensors, perimeter fiber optic cable fence intrusion detection sensors, cameras and other peripheral devices. Extensive testing and training were also performed successfully.
