Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. — The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Data & Analysis Center, known as DEVCOM DAC, has released the newest version of the DoD’s accredited, Joint-Service-approved, Advanced Joint Effectiveness Model, or AJEM, for ballistic survivability, vulnerability, and lethality analysis.

Built on decades of experimentation and methodology development, AJEM is widely used for analyses to support Army, Navy, and Air Force system acquisition; weaponeering and collateral damage estimation against personnel, aircraft, ground mobile, and small watercraft systems by operational users; and Live Fire Test and Evaluation, or LFT&E, producing results applicable to all phases of weapon system acquisition. Simply put, results from AJEM analyses impact the evaluations of systems that will be fielded and used by the Warfighters, ensuring system safety, functionality, and effectiveness.

New capabilities of the latest version include assessment of cumulative damage and time/event-based analysis, as well as efficiency changes in the verification and accreditation process.
