Abstract:

This report develops the relationships that determine the extent to which radiological countermeasures could accelerate the postattack recovery process. The recovery of an activity is specified in terms of the duration of the activity, the time when the activity is to commence, the allowable dose received by the activity personnel, the fallout field characteristics, and the effect of the countermeasure on these field characteristics. The acceleration of the recovery is specified by the difference between the time when the activity may commence if the countermeasure is not employed and the time when the activity may commence if the countermeasure is employed. This difference, the time saved, is analyzed as a function of the other parameters. Finally, the analysis is examined in a general manner to determine the range of situations where countermeasures appear to be potentially most valuable. Author
