Stratcom Perception Resistance & Deterrence

The objective of this project is to evaluate behavioral and motivational factors in the context of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) deterrence planning for a non-state, rogue, and near-peer adversary. The ultimate deliverable is a set of considerations that a deterrence analyst or planner can use to better estimate leaders’ reactions to U.S. actions in various deterrence scenarios. The project serves the National Strategic Research Institute’s (NSRI) overall goal of advancing the science of countering weapons of mass destruction and the threats to our national security.
