Twenty-five years ago, the U.S. government discovered that the Chancery Building of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow had been compromised by numerous eavesdropping and technical surveillance systems during construction. Until then, construction security for high-security areas had been primarily focused on design rather than surveillance. Today, the global war on terrorism has increased awareness and concern about potential threats—both at home and abroad.
USIS Construction Surveillance Services ensure the security and integrity of international and domestic U.S. government construction sites by proactively deterring the access of unauthorized personnel and materials onto the construction site; and, by preventing the implantation of clandestine surveillance devices into the building frame and systems during construction.
Cleared American Guards Provide Comprehensive Perimeter Controls
Access control begins with establishing strategically placed access points along the perimeter in coordination with the US Government Site Security Manager (SSM). USIS CAGs are 100 percent responsible for the inspection of people, packages, bags, boxes, crates, vehicles and preventing the introducing of unauthorized material on the construction site or in secure storage areas. Our personnel identify all persons accessing these sensitive sites and ensure only authorized personnel are appropriately badged for access. Perimeter surveillance is also conducted through closed-circuit television and intrusion detection systems.
Construction Surveillance Technicians Proactively Deter
Unauthorized Materials & Construction Deviations
USIS CSTs monitor all aspects of construction activity as well as the materials used in sensitive and classified areas. They prevent the implantation of clandestine surveillance devices into buildings during construction; and, ensure security anomalies or hazards are not being built into facilities. This includes maintaining daily logs of activity and events and reporting suspicious activity and deviations from construction drawings and plans.
