Next time the launch of an incoming nuclear strike is detected, set them to work as follows (following Karl Pearson's historical precedent):

  "Anti-aircraft guns all day long": Computing for the

     Ministry of Munitions
     JUNE BARROW GREEN (Open University)
   From January 1917 until March 1918 Pearson and his    staff of mathematicians and human computers at the    Drapers Biometric Laboratory worked tirelessly on    the computing of ballistic charts, high-angle range    tables and fuze-scales for AV Hill of the Anti-Aircraft    Experimental Section. Things did not always go smoothly

If you have enough of them (and Pearson undoubtedly did, so you can quote that in your requisition request), then you might just get the answer in time!

Good luck!
