The DRR is provided as part of the prelaunch briefing 2 1/2
hours prior to each event. Although the DRR is normally the
same as the expected BRC, the conditions listed in the
previous section may cause the DRR to be different than
the actual BRC.
To accommodate the differences that can occur in the DRR between departures, the air
wing assigns departure radials to squadrons in 20 degree increments. For example,
Table 11-8 shows squadron A is assigned a departure radial of minus 40 degrees,
squadron B a departure radial of minus 20, and squadron C the same as the DRR.
Pilots determine their actual departure radial for each launch by adding or subtracting
their squadron s assigned departure radial from the DRR. If the DRR is 320 degrees,
the actual departure radials for squadrons A, B, and C would be 280, 300, and 320
