Protective Knowledge: Protection in High Threat Environments – Demonstration Course

November 28th, 2017 · 1:24 pm @   - 

Stone Security Engineering is pleased to announce our latest, and most exciting, protective design short-course.  Developed for attendees from all backgrounds and disciplines who work in, or protect, people in high threat environments, this course is intended to provide practical information and solutions to the complex challenge of protection.

The course will be 4-days long and will take place during the first two weeks of June 2018 (we are finalizing course logistics now) in Bend Oregon, at Stone-OBL’s blast test facility.  The class will include a unique combination of classroom instruction and live demonstrations of blast, ballistics, and forced entry effects.

Instruction will include discussion of different threat types (blast, ballistics, forced entry, vehicle ramming), how they affect people and structures, and how to defend against them.

  • The classroom portion will address the relative levels of protection provided by standard construction, the types of retrofits which can improve protection, and the process of providing protection.
  • The demonstrations will include
    • blast tests of typical building materials,
    • ballistics and forced entry effects on typical and specially designed materials

Stay-tuned for more information and final dates.   Registration will open in January 2018.

We look forward to seeing you in Bend!
