Information operations, such as hoax calls or bomb threats, could be used to trigger an evacuation of a defended location. , creating a routine emergency, such as a ﬁre, to trigger evacuation and response, triggering of threat-detection systems, or acting to simulate an attack in progress) could also be eﬀective indirect stimuli.

S. homeland, RAND conducted a study assessing the potential use of these platforms in asymmetric attack scenarios in the United States.
