Los Alamos National Laboratory’s mission is to solve national security challenges through scientific excellence. The laboratory’s strategic plan reflects U.S. priorities spanning nuclear security, intelligence, defense, emergency response, nonproliferation, counterterrorism, energy security, emerging threats, and environmental management. This strategy is aligned with priorities set by the Department of Energy (DOE), the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and national strategy guidance documents.
Quick Urban and Industrial Complex (QUIC) Dispersion Modeling System
QUIC is a fast response urban dispersion model. Chemical, biological, and radiological agent dispersion can be computed on building to neighborhood scales in tens of seconds or minutes. For example, if a potential intentional biological attack is detected by the BioWatch system, QUIC may be used to provide outdoor event reconstruction.
QUIC can also be fed with meteorological data to account for weather patterns, including simulations from weather models such as WRF, MM5, and HOTMAC. It includes a day/night CONUS population database from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) at 250-meter grid cell resolution.
