Modular SCIF planned for Elmendorf AFB in Alaska
The U.S. Air Force plans to build a 7,500-square-foot secure compartmental information facility, or SCIF, at Elmendorf Air Force Base, near Anchorage, Alaska, which will meet the standards set out in the relevant Director of Central Intelligence’s physical security directive.
Bids from small businesses capable of performing the necessary architectural, mechanical and electrical upgrades to the proposed modular SCIF were due to the Elmendorf contracting office by February 18.
The SCIF will handle data from SIPRNet, NIPRNet and television cable networking, according to a solicitation issued by the Air Force on February 12. In addition, an intrusion detection system, card access readers and cipher locks will be installed “to promote secrecy and security,” said the Air Force announcement.
“Power shall be separated by red and black,” the statement continued. “Red power shall be used for high secret areas and black power shall be used in unsecured areas.”
Instead of the normal gypsum board for wall surfaces, a product known as “Quiet Rock,” will be used for “sound attenuation.”
