Abstract:

This report documents my efforts and the insights I have gained while serving as a target modeler for the Ground Mobile Branch GMB of the Survivability Lethality Analysis Directorate SLAD. In support of the Branchs role of providing modeling and simulation support through the ballistic analysis of current and future vehicular systems, my primary task was to gain knowledge and insight into the analysis process through understanding the role SLAD plays in the development of combat systems, specifically, how SLADs analysis results leverage vehicle evaluation and assessment in order to lead to modifications, which will ultimately increase the survivability of a particular system. To achieve this, I participated in vehicle measurements using metrology equipment using three-dimensional 3-D BRL computer aided design CAD target geometries and the MUVES vulnerability model, supported target geometry development through the production of component parts, and observed various test-shots intended to produce data for use in MUVES analysis.
