In this week's segment, we sat down with Dr. James Acton regarding the paper he wrote for our workshop back in January. Throughout the discussion, James shares with us how he evaluates the risk of inadvertent escalation arising from attacks on dual-use (nuclear and conventional warfare) command, control, communication, and intelligence (C3I) capabilities in a conventional war because such.

      Second, even the most meticulous plans for preventing a deliberately inflicted nuclear conflict would not remove all attendant dangers of an inadvertent or accidental nuclear war. While an accidental nuclear war would necessarily also be inadvertent, there are certain forms of inadvertent nuclear war that would not necessarily be caused by. AN ENGINEERING PERSPECTIVE ON AVOIDING INADVERTENT NUCLEAR WAR JULY 25 Introduction. As an engineer, I can only credibly comment on the engineering aspects of the NC3 problem. The overall solutions, however, will require the use of integrated sociotechnical approaches rather than social scientists and engineers working in isolation.

Knowledge of these hidden pressures, he believes, may help some future decision maker avoid ng a formidable. The purpose of this book is to examine the role of nuclear weapons in the light of a huge amount of recent research and to evaluate the risk of inadvertent nuclear war.

Over the last decade, research on the crisis has revealed aspects at the operational level that suggest the risk of nuclear war was greater than assumed.
