7. Forms of Radiological Contamination Information.
The following forms of radiological contamination information must be available to develop radiological
Basic Prediction Data. This is required for fallout predictions. It consists of upper air wind
data and nuclear burst data, such as yield and height of burst.
Radiological Monitoring Data. This provides part of the information necessary for the
Simplified Radiological Survey Data. This provides the minimum essential information to
prepare an overlay in the shortest time and in areas of incomplete monitoring information.
Detailed Radiological Survey Data. This completes the information for preparing a detailed
8. Command/Staff Responsibilities for the Collection Effort.
The radiological information is collected by using organic personnel and equipment. Command and
staff actions by organizations, indicated below, are necessary to ensure an adequate collection effort.
a. Company/Troop/Battery Units.
required by the tactical operations center of the division or other commands to prepare contamination
charts. An NBC team is a unit team appointed by the unit commander. It includes table of organization
and equipment (TOE) personnel who are used for NBC Unit Defense and the NBC functions as an
b. Brigade, Battalion, and Similar Organizations.
Information from the collecting units flows to the evaluating commands. The S2 is responsible for the
radiological intelligence effort at brigade, battalion, and similar organizations. The staff functions
parallel those at division.
Radiological survey and monitoring data are the principal items that flow through these headquarters.
Dose rate information and monitoring reports are forwarded with minimum screening by intermediate
headquarters. To satisfy responsibilities for radiological survey, each headquarters establishes and
trains at least one radiological survey control party.
