Riot Control: Analysis and Catalog ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This report attempts to provide a systematic analysis of some types of civil disturbances and a survey of related developmental materiel. The major limitation of the analysis is its restriction to ghetto - type riots, necessitated by limitations in time and available information. However, the materiel items described are universal in application to various forms of civil disturbances. The first part of the report analyzes such riots by identifying common characteristics of a number of disturbances which have occurred in the United States and describing the experiences of various security forces in their control. The latter part of the report serves as a catalog of materiel items, not already in the Army inventory, which may be useful in providing a more flexible response to the special requirements of riot control.

Comprehensive Law and Order Assistance Research and Development (CLOARAD) Program ( Book )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Comprehensive Law and Order Assistance Research and Development (CLOARAD) Program was concerned with hardware and tactics of potential value to military forces assigned to help control civil disturbances. The Program was a small-scale attempt to evaluate specific tactical problems and requirements imposed on military forces in disturbances. Within the restrictions of scarce data and time, manpower and funding limitations, the report delineates the most important problems identified during the Program and presents guidelines for the solution of these problems. Two firm recommendations are made in the report: there should be comprehensive systems analyses to determine the best feasible solutions for the problems stated in the report; and there should be a larger- scale, intensive effort to assemble and analyze pre-defined data on civil disturbances.
Operational Tests of the Coherent Optical Fingerprint Identification System (COFIDS) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
At the request of the U.S. Army Office of the Provost Marshall General, the U.S. Army Land Warfare Laboratory performed a test and evaluation of the Coherent Optical Fingerprint Identification System (COFIDS). This system employs the techniques of optical holography to encode fingerprint details and store such information, with high data density, on miniature photographic films. Identification is performed by comparing fingerprints with the hologram using optical cross-correlation. The test, involving over 100 people of USALWL, was carefully designed and instrumented to provide complete statistics of performance. The evaluation indicates that the system provides a highly foolproof means of personnel identification. Equipment improvements are desirable to automatically compensate for fingerprint variability and to reduce the learning process required of users.
