Abstract : An analysis is presented of the factors affecting operational use of a post-attack IR fire mapping system. Organizations that could support such an operation were determined. Based upon the employment of a specific number of IR units, the time to map all areas of interest was calculated. A 'threat indifference' approach was employed to determine the areas of interest. A training program is presented for both system operators and technical personnel. Many potential peacetime applications of the system were defined. A cost analysis of the various system configurations is also given. (Author)
