Integrated Survivability Assessment
Modified: February 10, 2023 12:55 pm EST
In response to the need identified by the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) to integrate survivability operational test results with live fire test and evaluation, the SURVICE Engineering Company developed the Integrated Survivability Assessment (ISA) process. The context of “integrated survivability” is all factors that affect the ability of a vehicle to successfully operate in its tactical environment. This includes not only designed-in features and on-board systems but also off-board assets that support its survivability, such as suppression and defeat of enemy aircraft defenses, off-board jamming assets, and standoff weapons.
