Abstract:

Existing M&S engineering tools fail to accurately model new weapons lethality enhancing (LE) phenomena so new a fast-running endgame lethality simulation program was developed. During Phase I fragment flood loading (FFL) effects were successfully incorporated into the Tesla Lethality Simulator and analysis with the tool clearly demonstrated that accounting for FFL effects dramatically changes lethality predictions along with several more subtle effects important to weapon design and use. Phase II will build on Phase I accomplishments to create a system's view M&S tool for exploring the overall utility and practicality of HTK lethality enhancing options. The TLS will be extended to rapidly deal with a larger number of projectiles. It will also be enhanced to encompass several added lethality phenomenologies relevant to new advanced LE options. Specifically: Reactive material lethality effects, projectile fragmentation, and the vaporization of material by impacts. Finally, the work will be thoroughly documented to capture all the salient developments.
