With the down-sizing of the military services and the emphasis on maintaining current systems, the area of battle damage repair BDR is receiving renewed focus at all levels. Evidence of this is the inclusion of maintainabilityBDR requirements in the Department of Defense DoD Directive 5000.1, and DoD Instruction 5000.2. Unfortunately, methodologies to assess the impact of BDR on individual system performance or to perform BDR trade-off analyses are not well developed or documented. As an extension of the general vulnerabilitylethality VL process structure, the Ballistic Vulnerability Lethality Division BVLD of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory ARL has developed a methodology to perform analyses of the effects of BDR on an individual systems performance. Furthermore, a separate undertaking by BVLD will permit the inclusion of BDR analysis in force-level models such as JANUS and CASTFOREM.
