Abstract : A detailed analysis of factors relevant to the infrared thermal mapping of hypothetical nuclear bursts in the state of Michigan was performed. Areas deemed critical to the recovery of the state were determined and designated to be the areas mapped in the event they were struck by a nuclear burst. A survey of civilian aircraft was performed to determine the number and distribution of those possibly available to perform the mapping flight. The total time for the mapping missions was computed for four different thermal mapping system options, and for three different levels of mapping resources. An analysis of the numerical data was performed. (Author)
