ICD 705 Acoustical Testing Considerations for SCIF and SAPF areas

We provide acoustical testing of SCIF and SAPF areas to satisfy the following parameters as detailed in ICD 705 Version 1.4:

A. Overview 1. This establishes DNI guidelines to protect classified conversations from being inadvertently overheard outside a SCIF. 2. This is not intended to protect against deliberate technical interception of audio emanations. B. Sound Group Ratings The ability of a SCIF structure to retain sound within the perimeter is rated using a descriptive value, the Sound Transmission Class (STC). To satisfy the normal security standards of SCIFs, the following transmission attenuation groups have been established: Sound Group 3 – . . . → Read More: ICD 705 Acoustical Testing Considerations for SCIF and SAPF areas
