Protection of our vital infrastructure from catastrophe. Intentional acts of destruction and terrorism, no longer distant threats, pose the real
potential for imminent, devastating and far-reaching consequences. The time, place and manner of subversion are unknown. But we do know this: a critical target is infrastructure - the lifelines of our daily lives. Electrical transmission towers. Cell phone towers. Fuel pipelines and water delivery systems. Some of these structures, which create the basic framework and underlying foundation for our quality of life are especially vulnerable because of their remote and inconspicuous locations.
