This report is written for government departments and other stakeholders, who may desire science and technology (S&T) support in ensuring a horizontal approach to emergency management and public security across the government of Canada. This approach is applicable to an all hazards approach to public safety and relevant to communities with interest in CBRNE protection, Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Surveillance, Intelligence and Interdiction (SI2), Emergency Management & Systems Integration (EMSI) and finally, Risk and Threat Assessment domains. The report serves as an overview of the approach and activities conducted with stakeholders who seek to engage in S&T research in cooperation with Defence Research & Development Canada's (DRDC) Centre for Security Science and the Public Security Technical Program (PSTP). It provide an overview of the PSTP Capability Analysis process and outlines how the PSTP may use exercises to engage in capability based analyses and simulation. The report communicates how the PSTP used certain views of the Department of Defence Architecture Framework (DoDAF) to map the incident concept of operations (the actors and organizations) for a scenario that represented a high-consequence public security event. The report documents how the PSTP conducted human centered capability analysis to identify where capability gaps exist in a response mechanism. The data obtained from using this methodology revealed a clear sequence of steps, and an output
