The Defense Science Board Task Force on Deterring, Preventing and Responding to the Threat or Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction was given a broad charter, found in the Terms of Reference. In undertaking its information gathering and assessing the most important issues for leadership attention, the Task Force decided that its findings and recommendations were best presented in three major areas, in part because the principal audiences for each differed and in part because the nature of what should be done with each is quite different. The three areas are Early Warning, Chemical and Biological Threats, and Responding to Nuclear Threats. For each of these three areas, a stand-alone report has been written. This document contains the Executive Summaries reproduced from each of the stand-alone reports, so that the reader can quickly get a view of the scope and results of the Task Forces work.
