Abstract : An adjoint Monte Carlo calculation technique for the generation of neutron and gammaray radiation response functions in complex, threedimensional geometries is presented in both general terms to allow an understanding of the method, and with enough calculational detail to apply the technique. The radiation response functions can be folded with any angledependent neutron and gammaray free field source and any neutron and gammaray response. Thus, missile vulnerability can be determined for any damage mechanism which can be expressed as damage per incident neutron or gammaray energy for any incident energyangle dependent source. The MORSE multigroup, coupled neutrongammaray Monte Carlo code was used to perform adjoint transport in current missile systems which were modeled with the combinatorial geometry package.
