Abstract : National Security Decision Directive (NSDD) 97 and Executive Order (EO) 12472 call for the ability to maintain National Security Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) communication capabilities in times of national disaster, which includes a nuclear attack. The Office of the Manager, National Communications System (OMNCS) sponsors the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) mitigation Program to evaluate and, where possible, mitigate the effects of the nuclear attack. Fallout radiation has been identified as an environment which may effect the performance of the regional and national telecommunication system. This report presents the investigations in the network level fallout radiation methodology used to determine the effects of this environment. Alternative techniques are presented to improve the methodology.
