As HELs become viable weapons, and credible threats, SURVICE has worked with our Government partners to bring our expertise in the fields of survivability and lethality analysis of kinetic-energy threats to the laser-energy area. The following is a sampling of capabilities and services offered by SURVICE as it relates to HEL:
- Execute HEL analyses that determine platform vulnerabilities.
- Develop new and novel methodologies for HEL survivability and lethality assessments and engagement modeling.
- Develop software tools to implement those methodologies for use by SURVICE and by our Government partners.
- Increase the fidelity and accuracy of HEL survivability and lethality modeling while decreasing run-times, allowing thousands of engagement conditions to be run faster than in real time.
- Support HEL testing through material and system damage characterization as well as the evaluation of survivability enhancement materials.
