Abstract:

JASON was asked by the Department of Defense DoD to conduct an evaluation of the nations ability to anticipate and assess the risk of rare events. Rare events specifically refers to catastrophic terrorist events, including the use of a weapon of mass destruction or other high-profile attacks, where there is sparse or no historical record from which to develop predictive models based on past statistics. This study was requested by the Strategic Multi-Layer Assessment SMA program, which is part of the Joint StaffJ-3, STRATCOMGISC, and the Rapid Technology Program Office within the Department of Defense Research and Engineering.
