Development of target geometric models (TGM), their associated failure analysis logic trees (FALT) and Failure Modes, Effects Critically Analysis (FMECA) is a time consuming process. The Rapid Mobile Target Generator (RMTG) exploits advances intechnology, coupled with nearly 30 years of experience with vulnerability analysis, and results in a novel approach that reduces this costly and time intensive process. Incorporating aspects of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, open architectureand object oriented programming, RMTG allows the user to quickly characterize, identify, place and combine generic critical components into a viable representation of any number of complex mobile target types. RMTG's knowledge and rule bases develop FALTsand FMECAs dynamically as the user places critical components (2C) into the generic target shell. The vulnerability and lethality community has created thousands of TGMs, each with their own set of 2C. RMTG catalogues these by target class and forms aset of common critical components (3C). 3C are added to the target shell via a
