Traffic Engineering Branch

 Traffic Engineering Branch


SDDCTEA functions as the DoD proponent for overall DoD traffic engineering coordination, technical assistance, and development of installation traffic engineering studies [AR55-80].


The mission of the DoD Traffic Engineering (TE) Program is to improve safety and efficiency on DoD installation road networks and entry control facilities or access control points. To accomplish the mission, the TE Program team engages in a variety of activities to include the following:

  • Publish guidance documents (pamphlets & bulletins)
  • Provide technical assistance
  • Conduct traffic engineering studies
  • Provide Training
  • Develop and distribute engineering software ..(ACP/ECF SMART Decision Evaluator and Better Military Traffic Engineering)
  • Conduct research supporting safety and efficiency


Better Military Traffic Engineering (BMTE): The purpose of this software is to provide installation engineers with proper traffic engineering procedures, references and common traffic, security and safety issues through tutorials. The BMTE is also equipped with multiple software tools to aid in common traffic engineering calculations used during the planning, design and operational phases.

Security Manpower Automation Roads & Lanes Traffic & Safety (SMART): The ACP/ECF SMART Decision Evaluator provides perspective on issues associated with ACP processing. When combined with practical knowledge, SMART helps make decisions with full awareness of the ramifications.

The primary performance requirements of an Access Control Point (ACP) or an Entry Control Facility (ECF) are to prevent an unauthorized vehicle or pedestrian from entering the Installation, to ensure safety of innocent ACP users, and to maximize throughput of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The overarching priorities are security, safety, capacity, and sustainability.


The new version of the SMART Evaluator is no longer web-based. Contact the Traffic Engineering Team at to obtain the updated version.
