Research Institution

Current lethality software tools available to the DoD are limited to buildings, ground vehicles and air platforms. The warfighter does not currently have any software tools to support planning and predicting the damage to maritime targets. Weapon effects of interest include those associated with air blast and fire (internal and external), fragmentation, inert/reactive particles, shaped charge/explosively formed projectiles, kinetic energy penetrators, flooding, as well as multi-strike and multi-hit scenarios. To address the need for a maritime lethality tool, K&C has developed an innovative lethality software application called Maritime Lethality Analysis Toolkit (MLAT) which includes four major capabilities: 1) a full suite of physics-based modules for the prediction of the required damage mechanisms; 2) an automated ship model generator which can be used to generate MLAT compatible ship target models; 3) an iterative mode that provides the user with statistical options for uncertainty quantification; 4) and a comprehensive set of post-processing tools for parsing and visualizing the data produced by the tool. Research and development that supports new and enhanced damage models, advanced target generation and detailed target features, and validation will further enhance the MLAT application making it an invaluable tool for assessing ship lethality.
