Multiservice Tactics, Techniques, And Procedures For Nuclear, Biological, And Chemical (NBC) Protection
DISTRIBUTION RESTRICTION: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.
This publication is designed for use at the tactical and operational level. It defines the roles of military units and staffs involved in the planning and execution of military operations in a possible nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) environment. This manual provides multiservice tactics, techniques, and procedures (MTTP) for NBC protection. It addresses individual and collective protection (COLPRO) considerations for protection of the force and civilian personnel protection considerations. This manual focuses on the need for all United States (US) forces to be prepared to fight in an NBC environment. It addresses the risk management that occurs when determining what NBC protection measures could be considered to mitigate the risk of operations in an NBC environment. The planning and coordination for NBC protection takes place with the realization that the potential NBC environment could be one in which there is deliberate or accidental employment of NBC weapons, deliberate or accidental attacks or contamination with toxic industrial material (TIM), or deliberate or accidental attacks or contamination with radiological materials (see Joint Publication [JP] 3-11, Joint Doctrine for Operations in Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) Environments).
This publication provides a reference for NBC protection; bridges the gap between service and joint doctrine; and contains tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for planning and executing operations in an NBC environment. This manual addresses concepts, principles, and TTP— to include planning, operational considerations, and training and support functions. It serves as the foundation for development of multiservice manuals and refinement of existing training support packages (TSPs), mission training plans (MTPs), training center and unit exercises, and service school curricula. It drives the examination of organizations and materiel developments applicable to NBC protection.
