This document, the archive copy of what was posted to the NATO forums, is the final draft in a series of developmental draft documents leading to AMedP- 7.5A, the next iteration of the NATO chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear CBRN casualty estimation methodology. This document presents the methodology as comprising four components user input, estimation of the CBRN challenge, estimation of human response, and casualty estimation and reporting. This document fully describes the required inputs, the method of calculating the CBRN challenge, and the estimation and reporting of human response and casualties, including a dedicated section for each agenteffect describing how to estimate human response and casualties from that specific agenteffect. To increase user-friendliness, each dedicated section contains a flowchart for that agenteffect to instruct the user on which equations and lookup tables should be used, and the sequence in which they should be used.
