B61-7 8/16
B61-11 4/8
B83 8/16

Can you carry any combination of nukes

The NWIU on the RLA does what
NWIU is the master controller. Functions as the bus controller for the launcher bus and remote terminal for the stores bus. It contains the active electronics and circuit cards to monitor, control, arm, enable, and eject nuclear stores.

SMP commands through?

What are the 5 types of detonation types and their characteristics
1. High altitude burst- above 100,000 feet
2. Air burst- below 100,000 feet fireball does not touch ground
3. Surface burst- fireball touches the surface of the earth
4. Underwater burst- under the surface
5. Underground burst- under the surface

What are 3 nuke effects?
Blast/shock (overpressure and shock wave) = 50%
Thermal radiation= 35%
Nuclear radiation= 15%

Nuke effects details
Blast/shockwave: air/surface burst causes most material damage.
Thermal radiation: fireball caused from x-rays
Electromagnetic radiation: gamma radiation x-rays direct effect, radar and radio waves

Where does the most damage in a blast come from
Blast/shock from speed of sound

Which effect is most dangerous to aircrew?
Thermal radiation can burn or melt aircraft surfaces and the EMP and TREE effects can damage onboard computers

What happens to the jet after blast
Air data system kicks off, autopilot warning, due to safe escape distance

What do blast and shockwave do?
Provide overpressure then over time rarefaction or a suction phase.

What does the thermal radiation do timewise
First minute or pulse is very intense heat produced from radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum (x-radiation). Second pulse is longer and less intense heat due to explosion.

EMP what is it?
Electromagnetic pulse. Causes interference with radio and radar waves. The most serious effect is the damage to electronic equipment not radio wave interference.

What is the measurement if RADs
Is the unit of energy absorption measures exposure to radiation. 100 ergs per gram.

What are the surface blast concerns and how do we avoid them?
The nuke cloud looks like a weather return on the radar. Therefore avoid what looks like thunderstorms to avoid the atmosphere effects and ingesting materials.

What is safe separation and how do we mitigate the dangers
Safe separation occurs during the delivery. Separation is achieved through a built in trajectory strong link switch and TA/GB timers- min fuse arming time.

What is safe escape and how do we mitigate the dangers from it
It is the minimum release altitude to avoid weapon fragmentation at impact detonation. Protect based on time, lateral distance, altitude and maneuvering. The maneuvering 1B2A-25-3 provides for a no damage delivery of the weapon.

What are the 2 different types of SAF and what do they mean
White SAF, means all weapons are safe and disabled. Green SAF, indicates safe power is successfully applied to the weapons- closes circuits in the NWIU and allows PAL enabling.

When do you get the white SAF
After monitor power is applied

When do you get green SAF
After Safe button has been pressed in order to PAL enable.

What are the procedures for target withhold
Unlock and prearm switches- off guard down. Switch from auto to man. Close bomb bay doors. Designate skip overfly.

What are the 3 types of override procedures?
REL INHB- bay door position. Allows weapons release if the bay doors are not in commanded position (65 degrees +/-.5)
ECS SHTDN- insufficient cooling. Allows the MMS (WIUs) to operate in the absence of cooling air.
BAY DOOR- airspeed limit. To open the bay doors regardless of airspeed (.8M max) press the BAY DOOR override and then manually open the doors. 529KCAS-65degrees. 397KCAS-90 degrees.

What is the progressive arming sequence?
1. Apply pwr WIUs. 2. Apply monitor power (white SAF. D) 3. Apply safe pwr (Green SAF) 4. Enter PAL code (D to E) 5. Provide prearm consent 6. Provide dual unlock consent 7. Enter USG code. Apply prearm power

Order of events unguided bombing
Pre-IP SMPs wake up target # appears nav steering boxed. Passing IP aircraft drops into bomb steering. Required or direct track is commanded. TTG appears. 30 sec direct track always commanded.

Retained weapons E-27
Before beginning the descent for landing verify retained weapons are safe

To jettison weapons what do you do
Disenable to get rid of PAL. Then CD

Once you have CD a weapon can you get that weapon back?
No the weapon is destroyed.

If you PAL disenable can you get the weapon back
Yes weapon is still usable, just locking it

B61-11 only inputs
FF-Freefall, and 69 TA/TB

When does SMP assign weapons to targets
1. WIU power up. 2. After the Pre IP (PIP) is sequenced. - weapon assignmnet, weapon status, tgt requirements 3. When you command prearm the SMP

Cloud layers can increase thermal radiation somewhere in between
50 to 300 percent.

Weapons display nuke weapons
B61-7= 61D/E
B61-11= 11D/E
B83= 83D/E

If no target number is available see L0 recover checklist
When passing the IP and no target is present due to SMPs faulting.

What system will indicate a noticeable disruption after a nuclear event (detonation)

Between or below clouds. Cloud layers can increase thermal radiation 50-300 percent

Which components are most susceptible to the effects of EMP
Low power, high speed digital

Bomb characteristics
B61-7: has combination of free fall, retarded- ground, air burst delivery modes.

B83-1: air or ground burst modes and can be delivered in a retarded mode

Can you carry mixed weapon loads

Safe escape definition
The minimum distance the aircraft must be from bomb impact point to avoid being struck by its own weapons effects

Safe separation is
The minimum time after release before the weapon arms (TA/TB)

When are targets assigned
1. PA PWR= weapon to target assignments are made to the weapon
2. WIU PWR up= the SMP compares the launcher to the inventory file
3. PIP sequence= the SMP checks weapon assignment after PIP is sequenced. Once sequenced the SMP compares the weapon assignment, weapon status, and target requirements to variety the weapon in the release position is still compatible with target requirements

Can you jettison a prearmed nuclear weapon
No. The system will not allow it. You must do a CD on bomb itself or electronically

What checklist accomplish the progressive arming sequence
Accomplishing the weapons monitor power on, permissive action link (PAL) enabling , and weapons prep for release checklists.

What is the difference a white and green safe
White safe= monitor status prior to PAL
green safe= safe power applied (enables PAL entry)

What is the difference between Rad, RBE, REM
Rad= the unit of energy absorbed. Used to measure radiation alpha beta particles and neutrons and gamma rays
RBE= the relative biological effectiveness of the dosage on a person
REM= a unit of biological dose of radiation. Number of RADs absorbed time the RBE of the given radiation

The first radiation pulse is primarily caused by what
X-ray/electromagnetic. Gamma and x-ray are immediate. Heat/radiation has a longer wavelength. Carries 90 percent if radiation

Nuclear radiation primarily consists of
Gamma rays, neurons, alpha particles, and beta particles

What is an important factor regarding the NWIU
Settings must match between the virtual bomb bay tgt inv with what is loaded on the airplane

Rads are units of energy absorption. For PAL will see E when PAL enabled. After selecting monitor should see white safe. Need to open doors 15 sec TG for min interval dual bay release. Fail safe if anything happens you wont get a nuclear yield. Weapon inventory does not edit weapons settings only verifies data.

Difference between normal and abnormal day
Albedo: norm is 30% surface reflectivity. Abnormal is 80% reflectivity.
Also difference in temperature and humidity.

Nuke strong links
1. Intent. 2. Trajectory strong link switches
Intent: USG, only after prearming.
Trajectory: safe separation: either deceleration for retarded deliveries or spin acceleration for free fall.

Tied to the radar gets stabilization for the radar. Receives alignment from the nav sys

What does the kallmen need
Needs 2 or more sources to estimate errors. Can through radar sys update force the update

Nav processors uodate how often and what do SMPs do
Processors update 4 times per second. SMPs update continuous computed realease point. Produces weapons release point for you.

What are the ways to update your system to improve your position

Give more precise updates. Should see 5 use 4 to produce a fix

What information do you see from satellites and how is the information stored
Almanac and empherus data. Almanac is retained information based of where satellites are.
Empherus data is more precise prior to dripping the system gives more precise data updated every 4 hours. And ion saves the point: freeze point

How do you update your pressure altitude
FM will produce reference altitude updated every 15 sec. You can preform an ALTCAL.

GPS updates every 15 seconds

How is the nav system composed
EMP hardened

Describe FOM figures of merit

2 seconds

MAGR use and when does the GPS stop providing updates
MAGR does all computation and data storage. Stops providing updates when it is tracking less than 4 satellites

If i dont have info in the satellites when the jet is brought back up what happens
It will take longer to find the satellites due to jet movement. Could take up to 20 min

How do the FMs reference pressure altitude
FMs will figure out PNS or i can do this manually. If i do it manually it only updates the one i have selected.

How does the MMS compute release
MMS Receives ONS (onboard nav sys) alt info ti produce weapons release point then solves ballistic issue

What dies the AMSS use

When shutting down after a full GA alignment what happens
The system stores full heading and position

In auto both receive uodates

Which is the longest alignment and how long is it?
66.5 minutes for the AINS. 41.5 minutes for the INS. 25 minute difference btw the 2

When doing what alignment must you mode yourself
XFER. AA align the jet modes itself

Anti meaconing

If you have a gravity fault what should you not do
Fly the blue line.

NSS AVIN caution
Processor or platform over-temp. Gps failed or loss of signal

AINS and INS processors have failed snd their platforms are shutdown.
The basic nav solution is providing data based on AMSS and GPS. FMGPS

The preferred. Av solution disagrees with the AMSS 3.5 degrees or more. Determine which alt reference is erroneous

1 NAVP advisory
Either the AINS or INS processor has failed and the platform has been shutdown. The sys tried to recover the processor 3 times. Expect degradation no crew action.

What is the difference between processor and platforms
Processors brains/ platforms gyros or stabilization

What do the IMUs provide
Heading velocity and altitude changes which feed into nav processors

How does power work between platforms and processors
if you power off a platform the processor is still operating in the background. If a platform fails the processor attempts 3 times to turn it back on

How does the INS work
Uses 3 accelerometers to measure the change in acceleration as aircraft moves

Thermal conditioning and thermal stabilization
Conditioning 40 degrees
Stabilization: 100 AINS. 150 INS
Warm up is a count up. Alignment is a count down

What is the difference between AMSS and MSS
AMSS is designed ti calculate heading and altitude through the RLGs

MSS receives inputs from the NSS and is used to stabilize the radar both use RLG

3 total kallman filters
AINS, INS, and BIG KALMAN embedded in the INS

How is release point determined
Nav processors provide info to MMS to produce stable platform for SMPs and compute CCRP continuos computed release point.

Ephemeris data
More accurate than almanac data valid for 4 hours and shuts down 2 hours prior to weapon release

What does it mean to have a nuke hard system
System detects EMP and shuts down momentarily for 59 milliseconds to prevent damage

FMCP updates
Auto does both sys processors. Manual does only one. Flight oath marker is produced on VSD by NSS which uses heading and attitude data

What is the fastest alignment
SCRA 2 axis of alignment.

AA fastest uses SCRA the. Must do 8 fuces in 2.5 hours. If gps only 30 min.

Crew or mx must do a ground alignment how often.
Full GA every 5 flights

When does sys uncouple
Disagreement by 10 feet or more. FOM varies by 2 or more.

Alert scramble
Must preform a full GA
stores position and heading
Base escape mode utilizes stored position and reverts to DR during taxi and modes AA prep.

When can you update AMSS
Only on the ground

In AVIN level 3 if you have no initial position what does that mean
You were not cocked on

What is the charge on the ATTU
3, 9v batteries lasting 2 hours minimum

If you have DR what is feeding it.
AMSS provides attitude to the nav processor

To mode stellar it looks for
GPS, ATTU or DEP time

Class A range: range is manned. Has ground based scoring capability and RCO who controlls acft
Class B: euther manned or unmanned, had ground based scoring capability, does not have a RCO on the ground controlling acft
Class C: unmanned, no scoring or acft control from the ground.

In class A range who is responsible for all range ops and air/ground safety

Who has overall authority and can abort the release at any time

Final switch position will not be accomplished until when
Until the aircraft is in such a position that any accidental release will be contained within the range

Inert aided or CO release you must do what before release
1. Confirm accuracy of NAV and weapon delivery systems
2. Ensure accurate receipt and entry of target coordinates and confirm they are from a valid source

Can you mix delivery modes in class A range?
May mix events or delivery modes when using same target or same type delivery, and if APPROVED by RCO

Weather mins
VMC minimums are not applicable for fixed wing level deliveries above 5,000 feet AGL.

Surely I am an old fart --obscurantist, McCarthyst, retarded, even (gasp) uncool-- but I can't help thinking:
Who does this kind of information help?
How does circulating it contribute to our safety?
Is it really the role of a responsible citizen to circulate it further?

Not sure I really want to know the answer.

Amazingly IMOHO, there are none. It's a wonderful document that seems to have gone through some kind of checking (remember that active jet fighter Pilot manuals are out already). So I wouldn't worry much.
@AN/AWW-14(V) : Thank you. Very interesting. To me the roll reversal ban was the most unexpected thing.
