Defense Critical Infrastructure: Actions Needed to Improve the Identification and Management of Electrical Power Risks and Vulnerabilities to DoD Critical Assets (Google eBook)
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 91 pages
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. DoD relies overwhelmingly on commercial electrical power grids for secure, uninterrupted electrical power supplies to support its critical assets and is the single largest consumer of energy in the U.S. In 2008, it was reported that "[c]ritical national security and homeland defense missions are at an unacceptably high risk of extended outage from failure of the grid". Commercial electrical power grids have become increasingly fragile and vulnerable to extended disruptions that could severely impact DoD's critical assets. This report addresses these issues and argues that with more detailed knowledge of the assets' risks and vulnerabilities to electrical power disruptions, DoD can better avoid compromising crucial DoD-wide missions during electrical power disruptions.
