- Self defense and the defense of others.
- Assets involving national security.
- Assets NOT involving national security but inherently dangerous to others.
- Serious offenses against persons.
- Protect public health or safety.
- Arrest or apprehension.
- FPCON NORMAL
- exists when a general threat of possible terrorist activity exists but warrants only a routine security posture.
applies when there is a general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel and facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable, and circumstances do not justify full implementation of FPCON BRAVO measures.
applies when an increased and more predictable threat of terrorist activity exists. The measures in this FPCON must be capable of being maintained for weeks without causing undue hardship, affecting operational capability, and aggravating relations with local authorities.
applies when an incident occurs or intelligence is received indicating that some form of terrorist action against personnel and facilities is imminent. Implementation of measures in this FPCON for more than a short period probably will create hardship and affect the peacetime activities of the unit and its personnel.
applies in the immediate area where a terrorist attack has occurred or when intelligence has been received that terrorist action against a specific location or person is likely. Normally, this FPCON is declared as a localized condition.
Random Antiterrorism Measures
Varying actions and procedure used to deter terrorism
Defense in Depth
Layered defense in order to provide greater resistance to vulnerable assets
To gain compliance by means of intimidation or force.
All measures in place to deter and mitigate those efforts.
Vessel Assessment Zone
visual range of day; outer most zone; not patrolled or challenged; notify craft they are nearing a restricted area if they approach warning zone. (Detect & identify contacts).
Vessel Warning Zone
screen off vessel traffic; actively interact with unauthorized vessels to determine hostile intent. (Warning shots)
Vessel Threat Zone
zone immediately surrounding the vessel; no hostile craft is permitted to enter this zone. (Deadly Force is used).
Land Side Assessment Zone
extends to visual horizon; outer most zone; security measures applied to detect, track, classify possible threats; not challenged unless seeking access to warning zone.
Land Side Warning Zone
security measures applied; unknown/unauthorized personnel & vehicles, bags, packages are inspected.
- Land Side Threat Zone
- innermost layer of defense & no hostile contacts permitted to enter; unidentified or potentially hostile contacts which pose a threat are engaged with increased levels of force until they retreat outside of the zone or are no longer a threat.
are not permitted land side!*
Discuss how terrorists identify and choose their victim/target.

Describe the common characteristics of terrorism.

Guideline outlining basic standards, which is taken by each respective service and tailored to their operation necessities.

State the purpose of PPRs.
A Pre-Planned Response (PPR) is a formalized set of watchstander actions to be executed in the event of a specific situation. They are broken into IMMEDIATE and FOLLOW ON actions. An immediate action is that which a watchstander is expected to autonomously conduct without referencing a written instruction (i.e. stop the intruder, call away security alert). A follow on action is referenced when there is a lull in the action or by a non-engaged watchstander. These may include calling host nation security, sending an OPREP or forwarding SNOOPIE team photographs to the chain of command.
SRF (Ships Reaction Force)
The primary response team, must be armed and out of the issue point within 5 minutes of alert. Consists of 2-4 personnel, also force used to SECURE THE AREA.
BRF (Backup Reaction Force)
The secondary response team, must be armed and out of the issue point within 10 minutes of alert. Will coordinate actions with SRF to avoid blue on blue situation, Consists of 2-6 personnel, also force used to BREACH THE SPACE.
Any remaining weapons qualified personnel.
Discuss the In-port Security Plan:
Standing Rules of Engagement (SROE)
are directives promulgated by higher authority that provide guidance to the watchstander as to when deadly force may be used. The watchstander always has the inherent right of self defense. Other conditions that may meet the SROE:
In charge of Ship/Stations Overall ATFP Program
Ant-Terrorism Tactical Watch Officer, who is overall responsible for the protection of the ship while in port or at anchor.
Command Duty Officer, who is the direct representative of the Commanding Officer when He/She is away.
Tactical Action Officer, who is overall responsible for the protection of the ship while underway.
Chief of the Guard
who is overall responsible for all pier side security watches while in port.
Anti-Terrorism Training Team (ATTT)
Command designated team used to train the ship on proper ATFP protocol and watch standing.
