Abstract : For over a decade, the Behavioral Sciences Department (BHS) of the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) has collected data concerning the effects of ionizing radiation on primate performance. These data are the basis for the current radiation combat casualty criteria used by the armed forces of this country and NATO. In order to ensure the continued accessibility of these data and to increase their usefulness in retrospective studies, the data have been consolidated into a computerized data base. This report provides potential users with the background and details necessary to access the data base and to retrieve information from it. The report defines the search parameters for the data base, and discusses the sources, extent, and reliability of data contained in the data set.
