Project Responder: National Technology Plan for Emergency Response to Catastrophic Terrorism

The National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism (MIPT) in Oklahoma City focuses on “preventing and deterring terrorism or mitigating its effects.” Since April 2001, MIPT has funded Project Responder, an effort by Hicks & Associates, Inc. and the Terrorism Research Center, Inc., aimed ultimately at improving local, state and federal emergency responders’ capabilities for mitigating the effects of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive/incendiary (CBRNE) terrorism. Project Responder will achieve this aim by producing two tools: a National Technology Plan for Emergency Response to Catastrophic Terrorism, and a Web-based Responder Knowledge Base of current and emerging systems and technologies for response to terrorism.
