This 1961 report is part of the NTPR Nuclear Test Personnel Review Program. The objectives of this project were to 1 expose electronic component parts and materials that are used in ordnance electronic fuzes to the same radiation environment that will be experienced by the fuzes when they are tactically operated or stored in the vicinity of a nuclear detonation 2 evaluate the performance of component parts and materials under simulated operating conditions before, during, and after a detonation and 3 evaluate the behavior of an operating captive, typical guided missile fuze system Corporal when exposed to the same radiation environment as the individual electronic component parts. Originator-supplied keywords include Nuclear effects.
