Ground Mobile System Vulnerability

Publication Type
Fact Sheet

Proper understanding and assessment of ground mobile combat system vulnerability are critical to improving system survivability, thereby enhancing mission success and personnel survivability in combat. The SURVICE Engineering Company uses its expertise to develop vulnerability specification requirements, perform trade studies (e.g., armor optimization and vulnerability reduction), assess system vulnerability for comparison against design specifications, support live fire test and evaluation (LFT&E), and provide general programmatic vulnerability support throughout the acquisition cycle. Results and findings from these efforts are used to enhance system and personnel survivability by supporting designers, program-level decision-makers, and higher-level mission analyses. For fielded systems, SURVICE conducts vulnerability assessments to help the warfighter understand how his/her combat system will fare on the battlefield.

SURVICE exercises specific steps that must be accurately performed to ensure that the results of the assessment are valid and reasonable.
