EXAMPLE PROBLEM: To understand how NBC 1 (Nuclear) Reports are used to
prepare an NBC 2 (Nuclear) Report, use the step-by-step preparation in
the following situation.
At 190745Z, the NBCE received
subordinate reporting units.
NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report
NBC I (Nuclear) Report
CHARLIE: 670 mils mag
CHARLIE: 5290 mils mag
LIMA: 230 mils
LIMA: 16 deg
Prepare an NBC 2 (Nuclear) Report.
When the first NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report is received, it should be
immediately retransmitted to higher headquarters with a FLASH precedence.
After the first NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report has been retransmitted to higher
headquarters, and upon receipt of the second NBC 1 (Nuclear) Report, you
can begin preparing an NBC 2 (Nuclear) Report. You will find that the
easiest method of preparing the NBC 2 (Nuclear) Report is to complete
each line of the report in sequence.
Since this will be an evaluated data report and not an initial report,
the precedence used for transmitting it will be IMMEDIATE. The date/time
the message is transmitted will be filled in at that time. The message
will not contain classified data; therefore, it is UNCLASSIFIED.
message is being sent from the NBCE; therefore, your call sign or unit
designation would be entered in this line depending upon the method of
transmission. The message will be sent to higher, lower, and adjacent
headquarters. The unit designation of each would appear in the To: line.
The type of report is identified as NBC 2 (Nuclear) Report.
In line ALFA of the message, you will assign a STRIKE SERIAL NUMBER such
as 001, 3IDOO1, etc., which will be used on any future reports pertaining
to this attack. There is no set method of establishing strike serial
numbers, except that it should be a sequential method which cannot be
mistaken for any other strike serial number assigned either by your unit
or another unit.
