Abstract:

The basic method used in the study was a historical examination of the Warning Cycle and a quantitative evaluation of three portions of the cycle, i.e., risk assessment, the actual warning and the communications. Risk assessment was defined so that it met the Joint Chiefs of Staff JCS criteria standard and was informative to all units up the chain of command with a single point of contact. The warning portion of the cycle was defined in terms of a single point of contact and its responsiveness to the system. Communications effectiveness was assessed using a 10 minute criteria for a net to be responsive to a CriticPinnacle message. The procedures that were actually used during the crisis were compared to the standards set by the definitions.
