These network centric systems enable the conversion of data to actionable information. Research is being conducted to provide intelligent agent software designs for such communication systems. This will enable an enhanced accuracy in critical decision-making and resource allocations. The integrated system must have redundant pathways that can survive a catastrophic attack. The communication system must be capable of integrating data on an emerging threat in a timely manner, and provide useful information for public safety coordination and perimeter management.

MYCOTOXINS Mycotoxins are low molecular weight secondary metabolites of mould or fungi [30-32]. These compounds are non-volatile and may be sequestered in spores or secreted into the growth substrate. Numerous but not all fungi species produce mycotoxins with variation of toxin production depending on the substrate. There are over 200 recognized mycotoxins, however, the study of mycotoxins and their health effects on humans are still in the progress. Many mycotoxins are harmful to humans and animals when inhaled, ingested or brought into contact with human skin [33].

Rapid comprehension of time dependent information by operators facilitated by new iconographic displays, training, measures of vigilance STRATEGIC NET-CENTRIC BIOLOGICAL DEFENSE SYSTEM 25 Figure 1. 9 Proposed Goal of the Autonomous Data Processing The end goal is achievement of a rapid appropriate action in response to detection of threat (within minutes of threat identification). In order to meet this time constraint in a real world scenario, it is probable that the man-inthe-loop may have a denial capability rather than an approval function.
