Abstract : This paper presents the deliberations and conclusions of a series of U.S. Air Force (USAF) expert panels convened to derive a methodology and supporting data for predicting the likely number of disease, non-battle injury and battle reaction (DNBI) casualties to be expected among USAF personnel during future wartime operations. The information supports development of the Threat Related Attrition (THREAT) System, a model for estimating casualties from conventional warfare.
