Abstract:

The objective of this research effort was to determine warning system effectiveness in meeting the present and future needs for warning. Program objectives are as follows 1 a detailed study of the requirements for warning in the late 60s and early 70s, including an evaluation of the need for outdoor and indoor warning devices and other warning systems which are capable of transmitting identifiable signals to the general population 2 an analysis and evaluation of the effectiveness of the warning system in meeting the needs for warning of attack and for determining what role the system plays in providing warning of radiological, chemical, and biological hazards 3 an identification of the cost-effectiveness of feasible warning systems and programs for the present and future, considering strategic needs in the late 60s and early 70s, and the likely performance requirements of the warning system 4 an identificaion of training requirements, formulation of an over- all training plan, and evaluation of the use of simulation techniques and tactical exercises as training devices and 5 the development of testing procedures which are capable of measuring operational readiness both independently and in conjunction with the training plan.
