What Does Next-Generation, Passive RPG Protection Look Like?

INTRODUCTION Rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) are a well-known threat to tactical, reconnaissance, engineering, and combat vehicles that operate in hostile environments. Technologies designed to defeat RPG-type threats include active, reactive, and passive armor solutions—each varying in…

System Capabilities Analytic Process and Advanced Teaming Analyses

BACKGROUND Among the principal responsibilities of the U.S. Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command/Data and Analysis Center (CCDC/DAC) is supporting many Army test and evaluation (T&E) programs.These programs come in a wide variety of forms and…

The Synthetic and Measured Paired and Labeled Experiment (SAMPLE) Dataset for SAR ATR Development

SUMMARY Developing automatic target recognition (ATR) algorithms for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery is an important step toward effectively processing the amount of data created by SAR platforms. Allowing computers to efficiently extract the data…

Flight Standards for UAS in the National Air Space

INTRODUCTION Proliferation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for military operations has proportionally increased the number of pilots trained to operate these systems. While there are UAS hands-on testing standards in the military, the thoroughness in…

Preventing Injuries Through Actionable Analysis

INTRODUCTION The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) is currently developing a new online collaborative system for the Joint Trauma Analysis and Prevention of Injury of Combat (JTAPIC) Program to meet its critical…
