The primary objective of this project was to measure neutron flux and gamma-ray flux versus range and time from missileborne, megaton nuclear detonations at high altitudes by means of instrumented pods that were to be ejected, during the missile thrust period, at times that were selected to position the pods at predetermined distances from the burst. Specific objectives were 1 neutron flux versus time was to be measured at each of three pod positions during each shot and 2 a measurement of gamma-ray dose rate versus time was sought from each pod during each shot. Keywords Neutron Flux High Altitude Bursts.
