Evaluation of aircraft survivability

Reference number
Coordinator SAAB Aktiebolag - Saab Aerosystems
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 900 000
Project duration January 2011 - June 2013
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The main purpose of the project was to enable survivability analysis of a platform equipped with a multi-sensor system. In such a system, the usage of the components is distributed by a resource allocator. Since it has a dynamic behavior, it is necessary to create a two-way link between the tactical simulator and the resource allocator in order to perform the evaluation. Furthermore, increased collaboration between academia and industry is desirable since the Swedish National Defence College possesses unique perspective on military technology and its applications.

Results and expected effects

The primary goal of the project, which has been achieved, was to create a two-way link between a resource allocator and a tactical simulator. To reach this goal, a firm understanding of the functions of both the resource allocator and the tactical simulator is necessary. To create a tool for evaluation it is necessary to understand what is being evaluated. Here, the issue is technical equipment and tactical possibilities. The properties of the systems included in the evaluation must be known, and this knowledge is thus a central part of the evaluation process.

Approach and implementation

The approach of the task at hand was to focus on the programming of the two-way link by using existing resource allocator and tactical simulator. Even with this strategy, the understanding of how the components work internally and share information, was expected and turned out to be a major task to perform. The article and the conference paper that have been written concern knowledge that is required to perform evaluations, more specific the nature of the radar signature and how to evaluate utility.
