NUCLEAR BURST INFORMATION
In this lesson you will learn to evaluate nuclear burst information in order
to prepare an NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE
Prepare an NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report.
Given information about nuclear burst reporting, required
information, and proper format for an NBC 1 (Nuclear)
Demonstrate competency of the task skills and knowledge by
responding to the multiple-choice test covering preparation
of NBC 1 (Nuclear) Reports.
This lesson presents information on nuclear weapons effects which will
enable the commander and the troops to continue to operate effectively and
successfully in a radiological environment. Nuclear burst information and
yield estimation are used to prepare an NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report.
PART A - NUCLEAR BURST AND YIELD ESTIMATION
The use of nuclear weapons is as much a threat today as before. The first
are rapid and accurate. In a nuclear threat situation there are specific
segments of information which must be obtained. To make an estimate of a
nuclear situation, it is necessary to know ground zero, yield, time of
burst, and type of burst.
Furthermore, in order to prepare either a
location of ground zero, yield, and time of burst.
