Abstract
Under a Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) targeted investigation (TI) project (CSSP-2012-TI- 1108), Defence Research and Development Canada’s (DRDC) Centre for Security Science (CSS) led the automation of the All Hazards Risk Assessment (AHRA) process and tools, including the automation of scenario development and capability assessment. This report discusses the design objectives and approach that was used for gathering requirements to support the development of the Capability Assessment Management System (CAMS). The CAMS web-based application, which was developed to support the AHRA and systematize capability assessment, is described in greater detail along with the options analysis. Functions that enhance the utility of CAMS software are described. These include the ability to characterize scenarios and maintain an inventory of “master events” and scenarios; the ability to catalogue tasks and maintain a historical record of assessments; and the ability to capture subject matter expert judgement and facilitate comparison and analysis of capability gaps and requirements across the emergency management spectrum.
