There are people in America with the means and motivation to disrupt local, regional and even national power distribution. In 2013, the Metcalf substation shooting highlighted the vulnerability of the nation’s electrical grid and became a case study regarding the expense of repairing and hardening of electrical system assets. Metcalf was an iconic event but multiple other shootings preceded it and have followed in Florida, New York, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, and Arizona. The risks and impacts are…

Exploiting modularity for effective border security Perimeter security and border security are rapidly converging. What were once two very different schools of thought are now, in today’s threat climate , more similar than ever. Throughout history, the U.S. has leveraged the fact that it shares only two land borders on a continent surrounded by three oceans. The advent of rocketry made the world a bit flatter, in that threats of significant consequence could rapidly penetrate our…
