Abstract:

There is currently no value of survivability attributed to an aircrafts reactive maneuver capability. In this experiment, exposure to enemy ground threats for various levels of information feedback to the aircrew were compared. This was done in an attempt to isolate the maneuverability factor. The Threat Model Penetration Simulation Analysis TMPSA model produced by the University of Dayton Research Institute was the penetration model used. The conclusion of this experiment was that only order of magnitude differences in capabilities can be captured with this model. It is recommended that two simple changes be made to TMPSA. These changes would allow more precise values for reactive maneuvers to be derived. Author
