Abstract : This document is the third in a series of developmental draft documents leading to AMedP-7.5(A), the next iteration of the NATO CBRN casualty estimation methodology. This document presents the methodology as comprising five components user input, estimation of the CBRN challenge, estimation of human response, casualty estimation, and reporting. This document fully describes the required inputs, the method of calculating the CBRN challenge, and the estimation and reporting of human response and casualties, including a dedicated section for each agent/effect describing how to estimate human response and casualties from that specific agent/effect. The methodology includes 12 chemical agents, 17 biological agents, nuclear effects, radiological dispersal device isotopes, and radiological fallout. To increase user-friendliness, each dedicated section contains a flowchart for that agent/effect instructing the user on which equations and lookup tables should be used, and the sequence in which they should be used; Appendix A contains illustrative examples for each of the major types of agent or effect. Although this is a Study Draft, it is envisioned as the final product, other than any changes required as part of the NATO review process.
