The organization and utilization of local civil defense resources under nuclear attack are essential elements of civil defense planning. Existing and proposed local CD operating systems should, therefore, be evaluated to establish their effectiveness under nuclear attack and to provide bases for decisions on distribution of effort among system components or subsystems to assure optimum allocation of resources and to provide a means for testing alternative operating procedures and principles. A computer-based model for the evaluation of local CD operating system effectiveness is under development. The model consists of three major components Local Damage Assessment Model, Countermeasures Operations Model and Countermeasure Effectiveness Evaluation Program. Assessment of weapons effects is made by the assessment model in time increments by unit area e.g., ZIP code areas for prompt effects blast, thermal pulse and persistent effects fire spread, fallout radiation.
