104 CAPTool User Guide Step 5b: Selection of Additional Countermeasures Introduction The Basic CAPTool uses logical assumptions concerning the array of countermeasures con- tained within CAPTA. The selected countermeasures have been chosen because of both their applicability to the hazards and threats examined and their applicability to transportation assets. In the Enhanced CAPTool, users can add countermeasures that are not in the CAPTool counter- measures database. Purpose This process allows the introduction of additional countermeasures. Assumptions The user desires to consider additional countermeasures in the CAPTA process that are not already contained within the CAPTool countermeasures database. User Inputs The user enters the additional countermeasures to be included in the Enhanced CAPTool, as shown in Figure 17. The user also enters all of the characteristics of the additional countermeasures. Output The user will have now entered all countermeasures they desired to have incorporated into the CAPTool.

Then, rename the countermeasure as desired. To indicate functionality, implementation, and package, place an "X" in the appropriate fields if the CM possesses the attribute. Next Additionally, enter an estimated cost in the appropriate field. Then, for each CM, use the drop-down list to rank the effectiveness of the CM against each threat/hazard and asset class -- L,M, or H.
