Synopsis

This course is intended to introduce the concept of survivability to new engineers, analyst, and program managers working in the aerospace industry.  Students should get an introduction in the basic concepts of susceptibility and vulnerability and these concepts affect aerospace design.  Additionally, students will see examples of how the discipline is incorporated into modern military platforms to highlight the key attributes of survivability.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide students with the basic understanding of aircraft and spacecraft survivability with a systems engineering approach
  • Provide students with the basic concepts of susceptibility and vulnerability as it pertains to the overall survivability of aerospace systems
  • Provide students with the basic understanding of the kill chain analysis and conditional probabilities as it pertains to survivability of aerospace systems
  • Provide students with an introduction to basic survivability technical concepts such as damage mechanisms, threat analysis, and design concepts for aerospace survivability

Course Outline

1. Aircraft and Spacecraft Survivability - Introduction and Historical Perspective

2. Survivability Testing and Trade Studies

3. Kill Chain - Mission and Campaign Level

4. Threat Operations and Threat Effects

5. Susceptibility A - Acoustics and Visualization

6. Susceptibility B - Radar Signatures

7. Susceptibility C - Infrared Signatures

8. Vulnerability

9. Recoverability, Force Protection and Wrap Up

Who Should Attend

The targeted audience includes new engineers, analyst, and program managers, both in the DoD and Industry, new to the aerospace/defense industry.
