The US Army Research Laboratorys SurvivabilityLethality Analysis Directorate Aviation Team has developed an evaluation module EM for MUVES-S2 for computing the probability of component damage given a hit pcdh for ballistic threats versus cylindrical components. The EM is called the Cylindrical Component Methodology CCM. The methodology is based on a fraction of circumference removal kill criterion and is applicable to both hollow and solid cylindrical components e.g., control tubes, drive shafts. The EM directly computes the pcdh for each encounter, eliminating the need to use predetermined pcdh tables for these component types. The CCM EM was integrated into the latest version of MUVES-S2 in fiscal year 2016.
