Vulnerability Evaluation of Personnel, Equipment and Activities as a Base for Taking of Engineer Force Protection Measures


The article describes a vulnerability of personnel, equipment and activities as a factor determining consequences caused by threats. It defines levels of vulnerability and provides a possibility to quantify its levels for all hazards affecting each resource. In conjunction with critical assessment vulnerability evaluation enables to describe severity of each threat impact on particular resource more specifically. The threat severity together with its occurrence probability creates kay factor of risk assessment being a base for appropriate engineer force protection measure development
