Abstract
On today"s battlefields, vehicles are at risk of encountering improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Fortunately, not all of these result in complete vehicle loss. Following events at both ends of the severity spectrum, Battle Damage Assessment and Repair (BDAR) and event reconstruction efforts lack the fidelity that predictive simulations have begun to offer. 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 more reliable and informed methods to gauge post-IED hull damage. Leveraging expertise in ballistic armor damage and structural response, Corvid Technologies proposes the evolution and commercialization of an approach that virtually recreates events in order to fill in the information gaps and answer the"what if"questions regarding BDAR. In Phase II, Corvid will validate Phase I results on the test range, examine repair techniques, and field test virtual event reconstruction for BDAR applications. Corvid expects to have additional BDAR support services and analysis tools that are TRL 7 or greater by the end of Phase II.
