Selected field artillery and air defense artillery battalion headquarters units, and other units as required,
use organic angle measuring devices and communication equipment to observe and report nuclear
burst data. Observers' reports include the raw data from which are determined ground zero, yield, type,
and time of nuclear burst.
c. Division, Corps, and Field Army.
In major commands within a field army, the radiological intelligence responsibility is part of the NBC
mission of the TOC. It is normally accomplished by the TOC's NBC Command.
d. CONUS Army, Combat Service Support, and Similar Commands.
CONUS Army, combat service support, and other major commands having area responsibilities
organize parallel to equivalent tactical commands in order to satisfy their intelligence requirements.
e. Tactical Operations Center or Equivalent Organization.
functions must maintain a record of all radiological contamination and nuclear bursts (friendly and
enemy) that have occurred in areas of responsibility and interest. This record provides the commander
nuclear bursts. Information is also disseminated as directed by G2 and G3.
9. Uses of Radiological Intelligence.
As a type of radiological contamination intelligence, fallout predictions are only estimates of areas
where fallout is likely to occur and are used at all levels of command for determining what impact the
hazard may have on the conduct of operations if fallout results. Fallout predictions are also used for
delineating areas to be surveyed. Radiological contamination overlays, however, depict actual
contamination situations. Their use involves calculation of probable total doses of radiation absorbed
or which may be absorbed by personnel operating in the area, estimation of casualties, and the effect
on accomplishment of the mission. Use of each type of radiological intelligence is discussed on the
