measures you take to lessen damage from enemy attack
Does it take a lot of time and money to set up passive defense?
No. it is quickly executed, inexpensive, and requires minimum manpower and material
Types of passive defense protection
Which type of structure for passive defense is rarely available?
What does a hardened structure offer?
-occupants and systems can operate during and after attacks
-substantial protection against direct chemical, biological and conventional weapon threats
-may include a protective protection system
-protection against small arms fire
-helps protects some effects of nuclear weapons
What does a semi-hardened structure offer?
less effective than hardened structure, but not many differences (only 2.)
1) allows occupants/systems to survive and after attack can immediately operate again
2) not as solid, and doesn't have a rock or concrete base
What does a splinter protected structure offer?
-allows occupants to survive and limits damages to systems
-not constructed below ground level
What can sandbags be used for?
you can makes walls out of them which protect resources from conventional weapons and reduce chemical contact hazards
Guidelines for Sandbag Wall Construction
-sandbags inside out so stitching not exposed
-bags filled 3/4s w earth or dry soil-cement mix
-tuck in bottom corners after filled
-make stretcher and headers (alternate)
slope ratio 1:4 or 1:5
Use of camouflage nets
breaks up outline of covered assets
When should you not use camouflage nets?
in chemical/biological threat areas resist use of nets.
chemical agents rapidly sorb into net surfaces and cause extended hazard
Why is dispersal of assets key?
spreading critical assets is important to max their survival
hide assets outside of the effective range of shoulder-fired weapons
never put assets on the perimeter
What should be at each dispersal site? (ideally)
at least 2 entry/exit routes on concrete or asphalt (these surfaces rapidly absorb chemical agents)
What can you do to help "Blackout"
turn off interior/exterior lights
create "cats eyes" on vehicles running lines
What are the limitations of camouflage, concealment and blackout?
ineffective against ballistic missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, gps guided weapons, other high tech threat missile systems
must be practiced continuously
talking, coughing, sneezing can give away your position
avoid bumping walls, tapping fingers, rattling paper
Defensive Fighting Position
Why are DFPs dangerous
due to interaction between chemical agents and many materials used for DFPs.
there is also reduced airflow
In the dining facility, when may cadets talk?
only when addressed by a staff member of dining facility staff
As the flight enteres the DFAC how many lines are formed?
2 even lines are formed even with the edge of the wall
Do cadets square corner while carrying trays?
No. However, if unencumbered will square corners in non-carpeted areas
If you need to use the restroom, when do you go?
Upon entering the DFAC, go to restroom, and after go to back of the line
How will cadets process through the serving line?
They will sidestep (heels will be together when halted)
When using salad bar and water fountain, which serving area do you go to?
The farthest available serving area in order to minimize backup
What is the minimum amount of liquid you must drink during the meal?
24 oz of water (tea, coffee, sports drink to not contribute to this 24 ounces)
What is a tight meal?
Cadets sit at modified form of attention, limted amount of time to eat
How do you ground your tray to the eating table?
front edge of the table, centered
