Abstract:

This monograph recounts the Operation HARDTACK planning activities of the 4950th Test Group Nuclear during the 6-month period beginning 1 April 1957 and ending 30 September 1957. Also included is a broad synopsis of the Groups participation in Operation PLUMBBOB, a continental test series conducted at the Nevada Test Site in 1957. At the time this report was written, a complete and detailed history of the participation of the 4950th Test Group Nuclear in Operation PLUMBBOB was underway, making a detailed accounting of PLUMBBOB activity unnecessary in this report.
