Abstract : The organization and utilization of local civil defense resources under nuclear attack are essential elements of civil defense planning. Any change from the original availability of resources, brought about by the effects of a nuclear attack, must in turn effect employment and effectiveness of the local CD operating systems. Existing and proposed CD systems therefore need to be evaluated to establish their effectiveness under attack conditions and to provide bases for decisions on distribution of effort among systems, components, or subsystems; to assure optimum allocation of resources prior to emergency situations; and to provide a means for testing alternative operating principles and procedures. The local civil defense operating systems evaluation model (LCDOSEM) is a computerized simulation, consisting of three major components: the local damage assessment model (LDAM), the countermeasure operations model and the countermeasure effectiveness evaluation model. The current research has concentrated on the design of portions of the countermeasure operations model. (Author)
