106 CAPTool User Guide Step 5c: Countermeasure Filter Selection Introduction Step 5c allows the user to apply countermeasure filters. The Basic CAPTool displays all coun- termeasures applicable to threat/hazardasset combinations. In the Enhanced CAPTool, the user may screen the countermeasures so that only those that meet the filtering criteria are displayed. Purpose This enhanced step allows the user to filter countermeasures contained in the CAPTool counter- measures database. Definitions Countermeasure Filters--Applied criteria designed to screen measures to achieve a minimum standard of effectiveness. Countermeasure Criteria: Function--Possessing attributes to predict, deter, detect, or interdict a disruption; boost response preparedness; or be installed as part of design/engineering. Implementation--Area(s) specific or asset specific, temporary/redeployable, multipurpose. Package--Belonging to basic, advanced, and/or threat-responsive assemblies of measures. Cost--A maximum unit cost per single application. Assumptions The user chooses to screen the display of CAPTool countermeasures. User Inputs The user will manually enter cost data to the desired countermeasure as in Figure 18. Output The user will have now entered all countermeasure filters they desire to have incorporated into the CAPTool.
