CV60 -> RE: C:MANO Stream with Rory Noonan (aka apache85) 23 NOV 2018 (11/27/2018 6:45:20 PM)
Ps (tiny nitpick but EMCON CHARLIE would be completely unrestricted emissions)
Minor correction: EMCON C retricts the use of platform specific emitters. EMCON D is unrestricted. Below are definitions (Source: https://download.tek.com/document/RADHAZ_Primer_37W-61447-0_05.pdf . I couldn't locate the proper NWP, but these are consistent from what I recall when on active duty):
The first, and lowest level is EMCON Delta and is used
during normal operations. With Delta, there are no
emissions restrictions, with operations allowed to radiate
any sensor that is essential to accomplishing the mission.
• The second level is EMCON Charlie. Charlie allows the ship
to radiate and transmit from mission-essential equipment
and sensors, but it does require that sensors unique to that
type of vessel be shut down in order to prevent adversaries
from identifying the class of ship.
• The third level, EMCON Bravo further limits the ship's
electronic emissions, but still allows for communication and
data transfer with others. Bravo limits what is authorized to
be radiated and transmitted from.
• The fourth level is EMCON Alpha, which is the most
restrictive form of emissions control and is called when an
operation requires absolute silence. During EMCON Alpha,
no emissions or radiations from any sensor are permitted
