Adds additionalrequirements for Codes Familiarization Training. Removes references for Peacekeeper, BGRPand MM III WS133B. Changes Master Lesson Plan (MLP) development responsibilities.Deletes requirements for shipment of coded Missile Guidance Set (MGS) D37 computers to theBoeing Guidance and Repair Center (BGRC) Heath, OH or BGRC personnel visits to ICBMwings for coded D37 computer removal.
Chapter 1RESPONSIBILITIES1.1. General.
This instruction contains information necessary for the day-to-day operations of unit codes sections and the training and certification of code handlers and code controllers. Itprovides a descriptive summary of code components for use in unit training programs.1.1.1. Chapters. Individual chapters within this instruction are organized and titled according tomajor subject area, activity, or location.1.1.2. Users of this instruction must notify AFGSC/A3IA and 20 AF/A3NB of conflicts betweenthis instruction and other directives, instructions, or technical orders. Users will forward queries,waiver requests, clarification questions, and recommendations to 20 AF/A3NB with a courtesycopy to HQ AFGSC ICBM Current Operations Branch (HQ AFGSC/A3IA). Depending on thenature of the issue, 20 AF/A3NB will coordinate with HQ AFGSC/A3IA, United StatesStrategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Missile Control Branch (USSTRATCOM/J384),Director National Security Agency (NSA), Nuclear Command and Control Operational SupportDivision (DIRNSA/I831), HQ AFSC/SEW, and other agencies as appropriate. To avoidduplication of effort, ICBM wings will coordinate their inputs through the other ICBM wingsprior to submission to 20 AF/A3NB. Users will submit inputs in writing (email is acceptable).Following evaluation and coordination, 20 AF/A3NB will respond to all users of this instructionas appropriate.
1.2. Responsibilities.
The control of ICBM codes and code components is primarily theresponsibility of all certified code handlers and code controllers. This responsibility is not,however, limited to these individuals. Commanders and supervisors of code handlers, codecontrollers, and all other individuals whose duties involve or affect the control of codes share theresponsibility for compliance with the requirements of this instruction.1.2.1. USSTRATCOM/J384
Responsibilities are two-fold: managerial and operational.Managerial responsibilities include serving as USSTRATCOM's technical managers concerningdesign, development, and implementation of ICBM launch control and code systems, systemsoftware, and code components. J384 is USSTRATCOM's technical representative to the NSA,Nuclear Weapons System Safety Group (NWSSG) (J384 is a non-voting member), headquarters
