- a detailed analyses of the healthcare needs of a large U.S. state in response to a pandemic of H1N1 influenza;
- a model to explore the public health response under a malicious act on the food supply;
- a web-based tool to explore the health care response and surge capacity needs, as well as the impact of any food-source, attack agent, or geographic target; and
- a web-based tool for food producers to explore vulnerability and maintenance of a food supply resilient to attack.
