Abstract:

Ensuring Survivability is major thrust of the Future Combat System FCS and is one of the key performance parameters KPP. The lighter vehicle platform mandates that surviving will take an innovative integrated solution between situational awareness and the usual survivability onion approaches of detection, hit, and penetration, and kill avoidance. The FCS Signature Management Science and Technology Objective STO has been working for two and a half years to address the technologies and tools to help aid in determining an integrated survivability solution. Specifically, the STO has attempted raise awareness of signature modeling and metric deficiencies and the need for a virtual field test capability, as well as performing RD to improve existing signature models to address the needs for FCS. As FCS begins the System Design and Development SDD phase, this paper reports the demonstration of the virtual field test capability as it stands today and what lies on the horizon.
