Abstract:

It is within this context that the Advanced Systems and Concepts Office of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRAASCO commissioned the WMD Terrorism Research Project at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies CNS to undertake a literature review of manned gaming and simulations of terrorist threats that involve WMD. The review was conducted mainly on the basis of open-source literature, but also includes some sources categorized For Official Use Only. No classified sources were consulted in compiling this report. The primary goal of this project was to collect as much of the open source literature on manned gaming and simulations of terrorism involving WMD as possible, organize these data, and present them in an accessible format. In the course of the project, project investigators supplemented these goals by abstracting and analyzing certain aspects of these manned simulations.
