This report documents the insights developed by the Low Spectrum Conflict Subgroup of the Operations Analysis Working Group at the 30 January - 1 February 2001 Military Operations Research Society (MORS) Workshop titled Chemical-Biological Weapons of Mass Destruction (CB WMD): Understanding the Problem. The overall goal of the workshop was to develop a comprehensive and improved understanding of the CB WMD analysis problem confronting the United Sates at home and abroad and to assess the military operations research community's capabilities to support military and civil CB WMD defense crisis response, and consequence management efforts. The Operations Analysis Working Group addressed analysis issues ranging from major theater warfare to small- scale contingencies (SSCs), counterterrorism, and homeland security. The Low Spectrum Conflict Subgroup primarily focused on SSCs, to include continental United States (CONUS) civil support missions.
