battle damage assessment (BDA)

The timely and accurate estimate of damage resulting from the application of military force, either lethal or nonlethal, against a predetermined objective.

BDA is primarily an intelligence responsibility with required inputs and coordination from the operators. BDA is composed of physical damage assessment, functional damage assessment, and target system assessment in respect to the degree of neutralization as well as the duration for which a facility has been rendered nonfunctional. This assessment is usually made on the basis of visual, photo, or electronic reconnaissance. Generally referred to as BDA.
