Abstract : The study investigates the requirements for and feasibility of the establishment of a Village Alarm System for Thailand. This study examines the operational requirements for a Village Alarm System, the technical characteristics required for equipment for a VAS, the effects of the physical environment upon the design of a radio-based Village Alarm System and proposes a concept Village Alarm System using commercial components fabricated in a modular fashion which can be varied to meet the operational and physical environments. Substantiating data are provided in the appendices including a summary of the physical and cultural geography of Changwad Nakhon Phanom, the prototype province. It furnishes appropriate reference tables for computing technical requirements for a Very High Frequency (VHF) radio alarm system. It presents a series of classified interview reports with individuals intimately concerned with the problem of local security in Northeast Thailand and it examines currently existing equipment which might be used or adopted in the role of a Village Alarm System.
