Conflicts and threats have highlighted the need for the survivability of our aircraft and force protection of our troops. This training will address issues related to the lethality of enemy weapon systems from small caliber munitions to anti-aircraft missiles within the broad considerations of system design and employment.
This annual training is a collaborative effort between the Joint Combat Assessment Team (sponsored by the Joint Aircraft Survivability Program Office), the Army Research Laboratory, Naval Air Systems Command, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, the Missile and Space Intelligence Center, National Ground Intelligence Center, and other agencies. The training draws information from threat exploitation, live fire testing, and combat experience to provide a complete picture on threat lethality. Hands-on experience is provided with threat munitions/missiles, test articles, and damaged aircraft hardware. Experienced professionals provide current, relevant information on threat system upgrades, proliferation, and lethality.
