Abstract:

A method of defending against toxic munitions which release airborne toxic materials is provided. The method includes the steps of detecting the physical properties of the airborne toxic material, detecting the physical properties of the munition, reading meteorological conditions at the location of the airborne toxic material, predicting the dispersion of the toxic munition, and modelling the predicted dispersion on a display monitor of a computer. The method also predicts the dispersion of an airborne toxic material at a known location.
