National Acaclemy of Sciences National Acaclemy of Engineering Institute of Meclicine National Research Council The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Wm. A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineering. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Kenneth I. Shine is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts and Dr. Wm. A. Wulf are chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the National Research Council.

Preface In June 1999, the presidents of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) agreed that a joint project on combating especially dangerous crimes, particularly terrorism, would be of considerable interest to both Russian and American specialists in a variety of fields. The president of the NAS requested the president of the National Academy of Engi- neering (NAB) to assume responsibility for developing and implementing the project. Representatives of the RAS and NAE decided that a bilateral interacademy workshop on the topic of high-impact terrorism would be a good first step in carrying out such a project. The Carnegie Corporation of New York has been very interested in enhancing Russian capabilities to address terrorist threats and provided the funds required for the workshop. The workshop was held in Moscow on June 4-6, 2001. A number of Russian governmental and academic organizations with responsibilities and interests in the field accepted the invitation from the RAS to participate in the workshop, and Russian specialists with a variety of backgrounds made presentations at the work- shop. Several dozen other Russian specialists attended the sessions, and their comments greatly enriched the discussions. The NAE selected eight American specialists to make presentations on governmental and nongovernmental experi- ences in the United States in the fight against terrorism. Some of the presentations by Russian and American specialists reflected a remarkable degree of similarity in views on the terrorist threat (e.g., radiological terrorism, agricultural terror- ism), while others indicated different levels of appreciation of vulnerabilities and response requirements (e.g., the long-term Russian attention to protection of industrial facilities, the extensive American concern over cyberterrorism). The . . via
. . . vile PREFACE agenda for the workshop and the written presentations comprise the body of this report. We will not attempt to summarize the papers or the discussions here, but simply note that the workshop provided an excellent forum for informative dis- cussion and exchange of ideas on the broad topic of high-impact terrorism. The statements made in the enclosed papers are those of the individual authors and do not necessarily represent positions of The National Academies. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This proceedings has been reviewed in draft form by individuals chosen for their technical expertise, in accordance with procedures approved by the NRC' s Report Review Committee.
