The objective of this proposed effort is to leverage state-of-the-art modeling and simulation tools to predict and assess the performance of a novel layered material system as protection for high-value missiles when deployed in launchers and canisters. The physics-based computational tools developed and used by Corvid allow for complex material interactions to be captured to provide an understanding of the synergistic effect of combining numerous light weight components together in the optimized thickness and order to provide maximum protection at the lowest areal density. Our approach is to utilize these existing M&S capabilities to evaluate composite light-weight ballistic protection concepts while identifying areas that require additional development to allow M&S tools to effectively supplement testing of new and novel concept, which will significantly reduce cost and schedule required to develop highly effective solutions.
