So what would a chemical attack look like?

SAIC to Put Attack-Simulation Tools on the Web

With the motto "Making the World Safer," the Defense Threat Reduction Agency uses computer models to play out doomsday scenarios, forecasting what might happen if an attack were launched and what could be done to minimize its effects.

The models cover biological, chemical, nuclear and other kinds of weapons.

San Diego-based Science Applications International Corp. won a contract worth up to $53.9 million from the agency to put modeling and simulation tools on the Web for first responders and government agencies.

No, this won’t be available to the general public. Just military and public safety personnel.
