Abstract : The SSORA system performs five essential functions: (1) It stimulates the security system (i.e., provides actual intrusions by simulated adversaries); (2) It records all system responses (alarms, CCTV imagery, communications among security team members, search behavior, tactical deployment, decisions, outcomes); (3) It measures response effectiveness in terms of such objective indices as response times, errors, successes; (4) It provides a means for diagnosing the reasons for delayed responses to a signal, failures to detect an adversary, and command and control errors in response to an identified threat; (5) It provides a means for feeding back performance effectiveness information to system personnel and an objective basis for rewarding good performance and correcting or compensating for system deficiencies. How SSORA accomplishes each of these functions is described in greater detail.
