Abstract
The proposed effort will develop methodologies to mathematically quantify impacts of lethality, mobility, and non armor survivability technologies (blast mitigation, situational awareness, and fire suppression) on vehicle survivability for the enhancement of the Threat Oriented Survivability Optimization Model (TOSOM). This will allow TOSOM for use in evaluating, performing trade-offs, and optimizing vehicle survivability for both traditional threat countermeasures and non-traditional survivability technologies. TOSOM has been used in the development of requirements, and investigation of countermeasure(s) performance to achieve an optimum or desired level of system survivability given a specific threat environment. This enhancement to the models capability to understand the impacts of countermeasures and non-traditional survivability technologies allows the defense community insights into and focuses research into technology areas that are seen as most able to reduce threat lethality to blue systems.
