Abstract:

Neutron doses for Dod unitsprojects that participated in atmospheric nuclear test programs are assessed using computer codes ATR and ANISN. Unitsprojects whose personnel are identified as having received a neutron dose of at least 1 mrem are listed by operation and shot. Of the several thousand unitsprojects screened, 160 are identified as having received a free-field neutron exposure exceeding 1 mrem. Of these, approximately 75 percent are aircrews with the remainder being ground-based units, either scientific projects or military observermaneuver units.
