Abstract:

The Nuclear Damage Assessment Module NUCDAM was developed to be used in the Naval Nuclear Warfare Simulation NNWS for calculating damage to naval units involved in tactical nuclear weapon engagements at sea. The purpose of the NNWS Nuclear Damage Assessment Module is to determine the degree of weapon system impairment to a naval unit submarine or surface ship that has been subjected to the effects of a nuclear burst. Damage to naval units from a tactical engagement is determined by calculating the nuclear environment based on weapon yield and weapon-target geometry and then relating the calculated environment to damage threshold parameters associated with the target to determine the degree of impairment to the operational attributes OATs that describe the naval unit. This report contains user information about the various versions of NUCDAM currently operating in the Fleet and the configuration management plan by which changes to NUCD AM are initiated.
