Abstract:

The structure target is a common element of concern to military planners, weaponeers, battle damage assessors, munition designers, firing platform designers, evaluators, modeling and simulation analysts, and developers of suitable range targets for use in live fire and training exercises. Using a precise and comprehensive set of standard geotypical building descriptions as a baseline eliminates a significant variable in estimating weapon effects. To date, a set of building descriptions has not been available to this community. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory, SurvivabilityLethality Analysis Directorate, directed the development of this report, which provides these descriptions on a worldwide basis using an established and accepted methodology.
