A survey of operations research models and applications in homeland security.

Operations research has had a long and distinguished history of work in emergency preparedness and response, airline security, transportation of hazardous materials, and threat and vulnerability analysis. Since the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the formation of the US Department of Homeland Security, these topics have been gathered under the broad umbrella of homeland security. In addition, other areas of OR applications in homeland security are evolving, such as border and port security, cyber security, and critical infrastructure protection. The opportunities for operations researchers to contribute to homeland security remain numerous.
