This paper presents modeling of communication systems dependency on electric power during nuclear attacks. Resiliency models are used to characterize cell site dependencies on the main power grid and transportation system for generator back up fuel. Primary failure due to direct damage and secondary failures due to dependencies versus yield are studied considering the effects of radiation, blast wave and the thermal effects in the analyzed region. The dependency analysis considers travel times… Expand
