Modular SCIF Advantages
The A.R.C. Vault SCIF’s modular design and construction provides many advantages. It is durable, portable, and fully customizable. Built entirely at Armag’s secure manufacturing facility, it is delivered fully wired for easy installation.
Each A.R.C. Vault SCIF is custom configured to meet the unique objectives of each client. A.R.C. Vault SCIFs can be constructed in sizes as small as 80 sq.ft., as large as 5,000 sq.ft., and everything in between. Even the height can be customized. The interior can be configured with interior walls to create multiple rooms, server areas, workstations, secure and unsecure networks, conference areas, and more. The modular design of the A.R.C.Vault SCIF allows it to be customized for current needs and reconfigured for future expansion. If intended for use outside the U.S., the A.R.C. Vault SCIF can also be configured to accommodate foreign power supplies.
The ability to custom configure the A.R.C. Vault SCIF also makes it available for use as a fully certified Special Access Program Facility (SAPF) or a Communication Security (COMSEC) building.
The heavy duty steel and hardwood construction of the A.R.C. Vault SCIF’s armored design provides forced entry and ballistic resistance and withstands extreme weather conditions. This gives it tremendous capability for use in harsh operational environments. Actual uses have ranged from snow covered mountains in the U.S.A. to the Afghanistan desert where temperatures reach 120 degrees. Whatever the weather outside, a specially designed environmental control unit (ECU) keeps the interior climate optimal for human and IT functionality. The A.R.C. Vault SCIF is low maintenance and designed to last for decades. In fact, the very first product we manufactured more than 40 years ago is still in service.
The A.R.C. Vault SCIF has several advantages allowing it to be installed quickly. It is manufactured entirely at Armag’s secure manufacturing facility, which allows construction to be completed much faster than construction of a traditional building and provides a “plug and play” option for our clients. All electrical and data ports are entirely pre-wired, ready to use. When the A.R.C. Vault SCIF arrives at its destination, just hook up power and communications to the pre-configured junction boxes and installation is complete. This “plug and play” design makes relocating the A.R.C. Vault SCIF just as fast. Armag can also provide installation assistance in U.S. destinations and abroad.
A.R.C. Vaults for military use may be able to be purchased through different types of funding, speeding up the acquisition process.
Modular and Portable
The modular design of the A.R.C. Vault SCIF gives it many advantages. It’s built entirely in Armag’s secure manufacturing facility in the U.S., a tightly controlled security environment. This not only ensures that your A.R.C. Vault SCIF will be fully secure from day one, but also allows our subject matter experts to oversee every A.R.C. Vault SCIF we build. Compared to standard building construction, Armag’s modular construction process is more secure, finished in less time at a fixed cost, and eliminates the problems inherent in traditional construction. Its modular design also allows it to be configured for the current mission objectives and later reconfigured for new mission objectives.
Being portable enables the A.R.C. Vault SCIF to be easily used for multiple missions. Its heavy duty steel construction allows it to maintain structural integrity during transportation and relocation, making it reliable and quick to install for each new mission. It can be located outside or within another building.
The A.R.C. Vault SCIF’s manufacturing process and design make it a very cost effective solution. It’s built entirely at a fixed cost, without the unexpected costs typical of on-site construction. Oversight by our subject matter experts provide cost efficiencies throughout design, construction, accreditation, and installation. Its robust yet portable and modular design makes it ideal for use as a permanent or relocatable facility. Built to be highly durable and low maintenance, A.R.C. Vault SCIFs can remain in service for decades.
