Argonne National Laboratory

Decision Science
Argonne's decision science programs enhance and strengthen emergency preparedness of government, industry, and the public at large by continuing to develop and apply the critical decision support methods.

Decision support tools help our nation plan our response to potential catastrophes. As a leading developer of these software, hardware, and assessment tools, Argonne is strengthening the emergency preparedness of government, industry, and the public at large. Our scientists create decision support tools that blend physical system simulation with social and behavioral analysis to assess issues of critical infrastructure protection, logistics, public health, command and control systems, and risk communication. A number of them are mandated for both U.S. and international agencies.
