SELF, JEFFREY( RE: SWB Maps - RGV, DRT, LRT Wednesday, February 06, 2008 7:47:47 AM

I briefed up (b) (6) on what C2 wants out of these maps. I asked (b) (6) to meet with (b) (6) this morning to push this forward. I explained to him the issues. We are on it.

I need refinements to the maps... Each Sector should have 4 separate maps Fy06, FY07, end of calendar year 08, and end state. It looks like the info is just all on one map. It needs to be broken down. The most important part is that OBP has the same info that SBI TI has. The tech info has already been passed (at 430yesterday to (b) (6) ) so OBP has that info. (b) will work with (b) to incorporate the (6) information into maps(6) OBP can use to add the ORBBP info. that Can you break the info down as described above?

Subject: FW: SWB Maps All, Attached are the first set of SWB maps by sector (email 1 of 3). For PF, we do not currently have the data segmented by FY or CY, only by project: --pre-PF70 (all legacy fence prior to July 2006), --PF70 (starting in July 2006), --PF225 (Sept 2007 through present). The GIS shops will be working on segmenting the data by FY & CY for future use. For VF, we do not have any data segmented by FY or CY, only planned & existing. The OBP/GIS shop is currently working through adding constructed dates into the dataset. For planned VF, although we have tentatively identified segments planned to be built by the end of CY08, VF300 has not yet been baselined (meeting to review proposed baseline is scheduled for 13 Feb) and so the GIS data is not yet segmented between "planned by CY08", and "planned end state". This should be done by mid-February. Rowdy(b) (6) -- please let us know if you concur with these maps and forward to the Commissioner's Office. Thanks,

C2 has advised that he would like the remaining maps this week.

What I think we should do is have SBI prepare the entire maps for the Tucson and El Paso Sectors (as you did the Yuma Sector). Then, for the full SWB map and maps for remaining sectors (those for which we don't have technology laydown yet), if SBI lays out the TI on the maps, I'm going to hand them over to BP to fill in their strategy for controlling the border beyond TI. So, we'll need to get all but the TUC and ELP maps from SBI ASAP...

Don't we already have the pedestrian fencing laydown in the maps (b) (6) walked S2 through back in December?

Super. We can lay out the TI on the SWB, it is the tower location and numbers that need a lot of engineering work.

Thanks, Greg G

Hi Greg. Re: the CY08/CY09 map issue would it work if, instead of replacing the "Near Term" map, we just insert another map that's for CY08 and excludes all but the # of RRVS towers you think you'll have deployed by the end of CY08?

As for deadline, we can set it for 2 weeks. If I hear different from C2 I'll let you know.

Re: maps for the sectors where you don't have details yet, I think a notional map that just identifies TI, natural barriers, and general areas that we're looking to secure with radar and/or camera coverage would be just fine.

Thanks for your help and feedback from C2. The technology laydown will not happen until CY09. Also, we will not have any technology laydown (tower placement) for anything beyond AZ and El Paso for a long time, sometime into CY09. We do the laydown in association with preparing to deploy to the next sector. We can do a notional technology overlay, but the number of towers and placement will not be completed.

Next week is crazy with all the budget and Hill visits. Would like to

have two weeks for the next round of maps. We can provide them as they are developed.

Thanks,

Greg G

He liked them! Only change he would like to make is instead of calling the 3rd chart "Near Term", have it reflect planned "End of CY 2008" laydown. He would like charts like these for the remainder of the border and would also like a set of maps for the entire SWB at a much smaller level of detail. He didn't specify a date, but given his desired turn-around on this product, I expect he is going to want them soon (like the end of next week). With '09 hill budget briefings and hearings coming up, these would be good to have. I know S2 also mentioned the need for something like these maps to him today, so he's particularly anxious to get them done.

I understand from Rowdy that planned technology laydown info is currently only available for Tucson, Yuma and New Mexico and that it would take a while to complete those assessments for the remaining sectors. Perhaps we can meet Monday morning to talk about how best to portray the maps for those areas? It would be great if we had this map, as well as a draft of an entire SWB/strategic level set of maps for the Tuesday Small Group ESC for the group to review/discuss...

Also, can you send copies of the chart to me (I gave C2 the only copy I had... sorry) and Jeff Self? I want to make sure that OBP is in the loop on the development of these maps as I think they (the maps) will be used as a tool to illustrate how we plan to gain operational control of the border through the deployment of tactical infrastructure, technology, people and other assets (like aircraft, helos, UAS) - and, obviously, BP needs to be in on that.

Thanks --- and sorry for the additional work, but at least we're heading on the right track!

Have a nice weekend.
