A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification
The Nuclear and Radiological Effects project develops modeling tools to: support military operational planning, weapons effects predictions, and strategic system design
decisions; consolidate validated modeling tools into the Joint Information Environment for integrated functionality; predict system responses to nuclear and radiological
weapons producing electromagnetic, thermal, blast, shock, and radiation environments; provide detailed adversary nuclear infrastructure characterization to enhance
counterforce operations and hazard effects; and, develop foreign nuclear weapon outputs.

The increase from FY 2016 to FY 2017 is due to increased investment in targeting support. The increase from FY 2017 to FY 2018 is due to increased investment in full
effects modeling.

B. Accomplishments/Planned Programs ($ in Millions) FY 2016 FY 2017 FY 2018
RL: Nuclear & Radiological Effects

Project RL develops nuclear and radiological assessment modeling tools to support military operational planning,
weapons effects predictions, and strategic system design decisions.

- Delivered air blast, fallout, fire, and Source Region Electromagnetic Pulse models to United States Strategic Command (and
other nuclear targeting and consequences of execution users) for improved nuclear targeting using nuclear effects that have not
been considered in the past.
- Developed System Generated Electromagnetic Pulse simulation codes by adapting physics in the Maxwell’s Equations
Equivalent Circuit code and the Improved Concurrent Electromagnetic Particle-In-Cell high performance computing code.
- Continued to develop a selected historical nuclear weapon outputs and effects standard database for validating Nuclear
Weapons Effects codes.
- Continued implementation of first principle modeling tools for nuclear fire initiation and spread in urban and suburban
environments.
- Via the Nuclear Weapons Effects Network, continued modeling economic and social consequences of nuclear detonation effects
and collateral building damage due to nuclear-induced air blast, assessed nuclear dust/debris effects on airborne systems, and
modeled nuclear fire initiation, allowing these considerations to be part of targeting analyses.
- Improved high altitude nuclear effects functionality for use in analyzing satellite and missile defense responses to a nuclear
environment.
