ABSTRACT

IMAAC Support of the Top Officials 3 National Exercise   [open pdf - 109KB]

"The Top Official 3 (TOPOFF3) Full-Scale Exercise provided a major test for the new Interagency Modeling and Atmospheric Assessment Center (IMAAC). Under the National Response Plan, IMAAC 'provides a single point for the coordination and dissemination of Federal dispersion modeling and hazard prediction products that represent the Federal position during an Incident of National Significance'. By designation of the Homeland Security Council, NARAC is the interim provider of IMAAC capabilities. IMAAC provided significant support to the TOPOFF3 exercise including extensive scenario development (in collaboration with the LLNL Forensic Science Center and the Lawrence Berkeley and Sandia National Laboratories) and the simultaneous, real-time support for the Connecticut and New Jersey Venues (chemical and biological weapon scenarios, respectively). To illustrate the IMAAC operational response, we focus on the Connecticut Venue in this poster."
