Abstract:

An extensive literature and information search was conducted to identify military aircraft small-arms protection enhancement techniques developed during the past 10 years. This data was analyzed and used to develop a comprehensive survivability design for incorporation of ballistic protection features in U.S. Army aircraft. The design guide is structured for use by aircraft configuration and subsystem design organizations. It provides guidance for overall survivability design considerations and detailed information on specific enhancement techniques.
