This manual is part of a series of security engineering manuals that describes the security engineering design process for facility design. Design guidance in this series of manuals spans the complete design cycle from initial programming to preparation of final plans and specifications. Each manual in the series is geared toward a specific security engineering user.

a. TM 5-853-1/AFMAN 32-1071, Volume 1. The project programmer will use this manual to define the protective system design criteria for a particular construction project and to develop a preconcert design of the protective system that can be used to estimate its cost.

b. TM 5-853-1/AFMAN 32-1071, Volume 2. The project design team will use this manual to bring the design to the concept (35 percent) level.

c. TM 5-853-1/AFMAN 32-1071, Volume 3. The various architect and engineering disciplines will use this manual to bring the design to completion. This manual to bring the design guidance related to resolving physical design guidance related of the building design process and includes information required to select and design protective measures to resist a variety of threats.

d. TM 5-853-4. This manual will be used to design electronic security systems, including intrusion detection systems (IDS), closed circuit television (CCTV) alarm assessment systems, and electronic control systems (EECS).


This manual establishes the requirements for electronic security systems. It describes ways to establish and implement criteria for design of electronic security systems for protection of Army facilities. It is intended to be used for the planning and design of electronic security systems by personnel who have the level of knowledge required for the design and specification of state-of-the-art electronic systems. This manual describes steps necessary to design a site-specific electronic security system with special attention to key interfaces. This design process requires the pre-existence of relevant support documentation, generic design specifications, and cost estimating guides..
