About this Item

K/NSP-511, 5 Volumes & Glossary (Velobound). Marked Official Use Only. Pagination by chapter/section (approximately 900 mostly vugraphs pages). Illustrations (many in color). This document was prepared by the Program Operations and Support Staff, National Security Program Office of the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant. A months old Request to the National Nuclear Security Administration, Y-12 National Security Complex contractor to confirm that there is no longer an administrative control on this document has not been answered; authorization for public use is assumed. Ms. Oliver was with Lockheed Martin Energy Systems, LTC Schwarzhoff was with the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Mr. Cieslak was with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense. This is an important snapshot in time on what was known, understood, and taught to audiences just months before the September 11, 2001 terrorism attack on America. It is rare for this material to have survived. A weapon of mass destruction is a nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological or other weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of humans or cause great damage to human-made structures (e.g., buildings), natural structures (e.g., mountains), or the biosphere. The scope and usage of the term has evolved and been disputed, often signifying more politically than technically. Originally coined in reference to aerial bombing with chemical explosives, since World War II it has come to refer to large-scale weaponry of other technologies, such as chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear. Among the topics covered were: Counterterrorism, Chemical Warfare Agents, Medical Effects of Biological Warfare, Protection/Detection Equipment, Hazardous Materials, Decontamination, Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycle, Enrichment Technologies, Reprocessing, Nuclear Weapon Effects, Nuclear Weapon Design, Radiation Dispersion Device, Improvised Nuclear Device, Nuclear Emergency Search, Nuclear Materials, Threat Assessment, and Credibility Assessments. Volumes updated with notations R3, R4, or R5 believed to indicated text revisions. Bookseller Inventory # 74919
