In this lesson, you will learn how to conduct radiological operations.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE
Conduct radiological operations.
operations, fallout aspects, decay calculations, total dose
Demonstrate competency of the task, skills, and knowledge
continuously evaluate the impact that enemy use of nuclear weapons has on
the conduct of operations. Units must be prepared for action to reduce the
disruption caused by a nuclear attack. Fallout may be employed to blanket
areas of poorly defined targets, create obstacles, canalize movement,
disrupt operations, and force relocation of support installations.
Casualty-producing levels of fallout can extend to greater distances and
cover greater areas than most other nuclear weapon effects. Actions on the
battlefield are influenced for a considerable period of time. Knowledge and
understanding of the radiological contamination aspects will aid the
commander in assessing the advantages and disadvantages of the assigned
