Decision Support Tools for Transportation Resilience and Security

This research initiative is identified as the Decision Support Tools for Transportation Resilience and Security. Transportation resilience and security are critical to the resilience of the nation's supply chain, national and local economy, and overall community to natural disasters or terrorist attacks. This project will develop models to facilitate traffic management decision making in the event of a disaster, using integrated intermodal solution. Additionally, this project will develop decision support tools, iteratively simulating interdiction events for assessing the critical level of the nation's surface transportation infrastructure.
