Abstract:

A computational method algorithm is described which estimates probable mission outcome resulting from crew exposure to prompt neutron gamma radiation andor residual fallout radiation. The threat scenario presupposes thatthe crew has encountered one or more nuclear weapons both aircraft and crew have survived the blast and thermal insults and the aircraft is undegraded by the radiation aircraft is survivable. Thus one is examining decreases in mission performance based upon crew irradiation only.
