Through scientific research conducted by the Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories the realistic consequences of an outdoor explosive RDD can be predicted with confidence. However, actionable local and state plans based on this sound research and realistic incident impacts are limited. The DHS Science and Technology Directorate is working to fill this gap in local response planning by developing tactical, action-orientated tools and guidance for the first 100 minutes of an outdoor explosive RDD detonation.
