Target Geometry Models for Suvivability Analysis
Is a target geometry model of a given system available to support a survivability analysis?
DSIAC was asked to locate a specific small twin-turboprop aircraft target geometric model (TGM) to support a survivability analysis, specifically on aircraft combat incident forensics. DSIAC serves as the host for a variety of DoD-related platform survivability and weapons effectiveness models. Our partners routinely perform aircraft survivability (susceptibility and vulnerability) and related weapon's effectiveness (lethality) modeling, simulation and analysis. Therefore, DSIAC staff had readily-available contacts to inquire about the given TGM of interest. Additionally, DSIAC produces freely distributed TGMs for use in survivability modeling, simulation and analysis training and similar activities. DSIAC staff was able to quickly respond to the inquirer. DSIAC identified the existence of the given TGM and also facilitated connections for any additional model development work that may be of interest to the inquirer.
