Abstract : This project will investigate the current Resiliency Analysis Support Tool (RAST) and its usability with Department of Defense (DoD) military and civilian personnel. With the unexpected possibilities of natural and man-made disasters worldwide, RAST could inform combatant commanders (CCDRs) and component commanders of resources to facilitate recovery and provide humanitarian assistance/disaster relief (HA/DR). However, due to the lack of knowledge of RAST, the potential benefits for implementation of this system remain unnoticed. This project provides an assessment of the current RAST system, its ease of understanding with potential users, and an application of the system to a particular disaster in the Pacific Command area of responsibility (AOR).
