d. Tactical dosimeters will be read daily or more often if the situation dictates. The "net" readings
(or the amount accumulated since the last reading) of the platoon's two dosimeters will be averaged,
rounded off to the nearest 10 cGy, and reported to the company. If there is a reason to believe that the
reading from one dosimeter is not representative of the platoon, it should not be used. For example, the
person carrying the dosimeter may have been shielded or operating away from the platoon. In such cases,
only the reading from the one representative dosimeter is used.
e. The platoon reports to the company only the net reading. The company reports the platoon
readings to the Operations and Training Officer (US Army) (S3) at battalion or similar-size unit by radio
or telephone daily or when the situation permits. When units are exposed to relatively high doses that
exceed the established OEG, the reports should be processed without delay. The unit SOP will specify
the time and method of reading and transmitting the information to the next higher headquarters.
