Abstract : The concept is developed for analyzing and evaluating the evolving Civil Defense Communications System through periodic system evaluation exercises. A feasible method is presented for measuring operational capabilities using obtainable information about system characteristics, operational environments, and user needs. Appropriate criteria of system effectiveness are specified to allow selection of 'optimum' system configurations and to provide the basis for evaluation of future systems and techniques for possible inclusion in the Civil Defense Communication System.
