On today"s battlefields, vehicles are at risk of encountering improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Fortunately, not all of these result in complete vehicle loss. Sending a vehicle back to the depot for overhaul when it could have stayed in operation, wastes precious resources. Conversely, leaving a damaged vehicle in operation without some level of confidence that it can withstand a second blast places a higher risk on the soldier. As such, the Marine Corps needs a reliable tool that can gauge post-IED hull damage against standardized thresholds. Leveraging expertise in ballistic armor damage and structural response, Corvid Technologies proposes an approach to identify damage thresholds that require repair. We will then evaluate emerging and available technologies for use in aiding Battle Damage Assessment and Repair (BDAR). In Phase I, Corvid will design a toolset to provide standardized go or no-go BDAR decisions. A Phase II test and evaluation plan will be outlined and will ultimately lead to a device that is TRL 7 or greater by the end of Phase II.
