Operation Buster–Jangle was a series of seven (six atmospheric and one cratering) nuclear weapons tests conducted by the United States in late 1951 at the Nevada Test Site. Operation Buster–Jangle was the first joint test program between the DOD (Operation Buster) and Los Alamos National Laboratories (Operation Jangle). As part of Operation Buster, 6,500 troops were involved in the Operation Desert Rock I, II, and III exercises in conjunction with the tests. The last two tests, known as Operation Jangle, evaluated the cratering effects of low-yield nuclear devices.
