Abstract:

Common nuclear radiation hardness criteria are developed and recommended for air Force wide adoption. The criteria are based upon human mission kill doses, technical capability to harden, and representative missions of manned penetrators. The criteria levels should provide balanced and cost effective life cycle hardness values. They also provide well defined keep out rangeslethal volumes needed as input for future bomber defense systems. More importantly the common criteria would decrease logistic support costs, increase the useability and interoperability of electronic equipment, and support the development of integrated hardness maintenance programs.
