Advances in Security Technology: Selected Papers of the Carnahan Conferences on Security Technology, 1983–1985 focuses on security solutions. The book first discusses securing planning, including technical methods to enhance protection against sabotage and theft. The text elaborates on integrated security systems, including methodology overview and security systems design. The book highlights physical protection systems using activated barriers and development of deployment procedures for activated barriers. Physical protection, barrier technology, and barrier operations are explained. The text discusses intrusion detection systems; developments in long-line ported coaxial intrusion detection sensors; ported coaxial cable sensors for interior applications; and opportunities for photoelectric beams for indoor and outdoor security applications. The book also highlights developments in ultrasonic and infrared motion detectors; vault protection with seismic detector systems; external use of closed-circuit television; and security system applications for fiber optics. The selection is a good source of information for security experts.
