Abstract
Most military installations utilize an entry control point that is inefficient, time consuming, and manpower intensive. Unfortunately, as a result of the current inefficiency, traffic congestion has become a nuisance for many service members, as well as government employees. Directive Type Memorandum (DTM) 09-012, "Interim Policy Guidance DoD Physical Access Control" distributed by the Undersecretary of the Navy states that biometric access to military installations shall be implemented when feasible. This thesis addresses the capability gap for an automated entry control point that increases throughput without sacrificing security. Application of the Systems Engineering process, concept of operations, functional and physical architectures provide a general solution that fills the identified capability gap. Additionally, this thesis provides a proof-of-concept prototype solution by means of simulation and modeling.
