Abstract:

This report presents an investigation into the post-attack capability of the institution of higher education. The existing higher education system was described in terms of physical and organizational characteristics which render it vulnerable to disruption from nuclear attack. The vulnerabilities were verified by assessing system damage resulting from a hypothetical attack. Operational elasticity inherent in the system was clarified with respect to the post-attack capability of a sample of schools, and countermeasures designed to protect the system and hasten its recovery were developed.
