Abstract:

This report provides the intended user of accidental impact descriptors for Air Force air-to-ground weapon range planning activities a brief summary of their development, the step-by-step procedure for properly applying them, and an example problem. The descriptors are provided in Appendix A. These descriptors show containment contours for significant percentages of impacts resulting from weapon delivery training and weapon tests conducted in the last 12 years. The application methodology is adapted from a previous report and includes qualifications for use of composite descriptors, identification of hazard potential areas, and resolution of land-use conflicts. If the graphical solutions presented in this report do not resolve a particular land-use conflict, further analysis is recommended. Author
