Abstract
The release of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) agents by terrorists or rogue states in a North American city (densely populated urban center) and the subsequent exposure, deposition and contamination are emerging threats in an uncertain world. The realities of disaster management today place inter-organizational collaboration at the forefront of any response, highlighting the need for a coherent and interoperable approach. In order to advance interoperability assessment and development, a common integrating architecture, which describes the structure of the components (organizations), their interrelationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time is required. In essence, a CBRN incident response constitute a System-of-System (S-of-S) paradigm when viewed across the various responder organizations, agencies and departments and therefore requires a structure to support communication between diverse stakeholders, an ability to effectively manage complexity and to implement incremental change as each organization within the System-to-System paradigm evolves. To support the development of an Operational Architecture that captures and identifies municipal-provincial-federal organizations, capabilities, processes and command and control relationships focused on CBRN response, specific CBRN scenarios involving the release of a CBRN agent over the Vancouver-Whistler geographic area (requiring realistic predictions of tr
