Threat Characterization Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E)

DSIAC provided RDT&E for characterizing current and future kinetic and directed energy threats ultimately to increase survivability and develop vulnerability reduction features of specific fixed-wing, unmanned, and rotorcraft platforms. DSIAC developed test plans, conducted analyses,…

Ground Vehicle Survivability and Force Protection (GVS&FP) Educational Program

DSIAC supported the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) and Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) efforts to develop a GVS&FP educational program. DSIAC provided subject matter expertise and direct input for initial course and text development….

Research and Development (R&D) for Lightweight Combat System Redundancy Concepts

The U.S. Army recognizes that as the enemy continues to evolve asymmetrical strategies to inflict casualties, it must continue to look at new solutions (i.e., in addition to armor) to improve survivability of lightweight combat ground…

Joint Aircraft Survivability Program Support and Studies

DSIAC assisted the Joint Aircraft Survivability Program’s (JASP’s) efforts to develop and disseminate critical scientific and technical information (STI) related to survivability methods to be used by the combat survivability community for evaluating and enhancing…

The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) Aviation Operations in Amphibious Environment Study

DSIAC worked on an effort to research and analyze the Marine Corps’ emerging operational environment, the operational concepts that impact aviation operations in an amphibious environment, and the doctrinal and process underpinnings that support these…

The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) Rotary-Wing Aircraft Training Requirements Study

DSIAC researched and analyzed the Marine Corps’ future operational environment, the operational concepts that impact rotary-wing aircraft, and the training requirements necessary to achieve these concepts. The subjects assessed and analyzed for gaps included ranges,…

Systems Analysis of Maneuver, Soldier, Aviation, Air Defense, and Artillery Weapons Systems

DSIAC supported AMSAA with conducting item-level analyses and developing methodology for maneuver, soldier, aviation, air defense, and artillery weapons systems. DSIAC assisted with developing a mid-fidelity minefield effectiveness modeling and simulation tool, associated methodology, and…

U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Future Analytical Science and Technology (FAST) Wargames

DSIAC supported AFRL’s FAST wargaming effort by providing AFRL/XPT with a verified and validated wargaming capability. To achieve this, DSIAC completed the following tasks: Performed a scientific and technical information assessment and gap analysis. Assisted…

Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program (JNLWP) Study

DSIAC supported the U.S. Army and Marine Corps (USMC) effort to identify gaps in non-lethal weapons (NLW) capabilities in the activities associated with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD’s) JNLWP. DSIAC provided communication and coordination…

Visual Simulation Laboratory (VSL) Methodology and Integration With Existing Survivability, Lethality, and Vulnerability (SLV) Analysis Techniques

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Survivability/Lethality Analysis Directorate’s (SLAD’s) new VSL is a next-generation, high-performance, and extensible computing framework (and vulnerability assessment simulation) designed to leverage current and next-generation heterogeneous computing architectures. DSIAC supported…

Program Manager Medium and Heavy Tactical Vehicles (PM MHTV) Survivability and Vulnerability Engineering

In support of PM MHTV’s effort to improve system sustainment and implement upgrades, DSIAC researched, identified, and conducted survivability-related analyses on PM MHTV’s proposed system technology updates and sustainment modifications and provided survivability recommendations for…

Weapons Systems Projectile Lethality and Vulnerability Analyses

DSIAC conducted an evaluation of the lethality effectiveness of medium-caliber rounds against given target sets. DSIAC performed a scientific and technical information literature search, completed function testing of projectiles, gathered information about emerging projectiles, and…
