Terrorism Response Training
SAIC has experience meeting the terrorism incident response training needs of a wide variety of customers, from training for a national Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) scenario, applicable at agency response levels, to lesser levels of incidents affecting a city, a military installation or a special facility. We offer standardized curriculum programs of instruction and training exercises using planning tools, training materials, and clinically validated operational procedures. Our systematic and unified approach is essential in preparation for catastrophic events, such as a WMD incident or mass-casualty medical evaluations.
Designing Realistic Training Exercise Tools
Following the September 11th attacks, realistic training for first responders became more essential than ever. However, time-efficient and cost-effective exercise tools to accomplish such training did not exist. SAIC training experts worked closely with our software engineers to design a first-of-its-kind system funded by the National Guard Bureau. This interactive simulation-based training system, the Automated Exercise & Assessment System (AEAS), has helped local emergency responders from Utah to West Virginia to Iowa prepare for possible terrorist attacks involving weapons of mass destruction. More than 3,000 additional communities expect to benefit from the training system.

SAIC helped develop and conduct WMD training courses, including those currently offered through the Domestic Preparedness Program. Our services include:
- Classroom instruction on WMD events; Natural Disasters; Geologic Events; Health Emergencies; Industrial Accidents; Utility, Energy and Manmade Situations
