Abstract:

The objective of this report is to define user planning requirements for tactical nuclear weapon employment. It identifies the nuclear planning employment functions at corps and division echelons, the interfaces among these functions and the interfaces between these functions and other command and control C2 functions. It is intended that it be used as the basic requirements document for the automation of the nuclear employment planning process as part of the Army Tactical Command and Control System ATCCS. The Functional Description Volume II of the report provides a menu of functions processes which, depending on the phase of nuclear employment must be performed to plan for the use of nuclear weapons at corps and division echelons. The processes have been decomposed to five levels of resolution. Commanders guidance as it applies to nuclear employment planning is discussed separately in the Main Report and interwoven throughout the data flow diagrams, functional descriptions and the data dictionary. All of these elements make up this report and must be viewed together to get the overall picture of the Operational Nuclear Employment Planning Process. jhd
