This paper considers barriers that separate one region from another in the sense that an intruder cannot pass from one region to the other without being captured. The barriers are composed of individuals unites, each of which has a fixed speed and capture radius. The distinguishing feature is that the intruder is assumed to know the configuration of the barrier at all times and can use this information to select a successful penetration path, if one exists. We find conditions under which penetration is possible, first for straight-line barriers and then for circular barriers.
