Guard seeks money for secure room in NC

Published 12:00 am Monday, April 1, 2013

WILMINGTON (AP) — The N.C. National Guard is seeking more than $1 million in federal funds to build a secure room in Kure Beach.
The StarNews of Wilmington reported that the National Guard wants the money to renovate 2,100 square feet in a building at the Fort Fisher Training Site for military intelligence training.
Gov. Pat McCrory’s budget says the project includes electrical, data and security upgrades. It also calls for uninterrupted backup power. Other requirements include the installation of sound dampening panels to stop eavesdropping, thick security doors and jamming equipment to prevent surveillance.
The room is called a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility and must meet requirements to protect classified information.
McCrory’s office said the request is included in the state budget so the National Guard can track the money.
