Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.G.06. Hit Avoidance TD/ATD. By FY97, the ATD objective is to demonstrate, in a systems integration laboratory (SIL), a commander’s decision aid with software logic to implement fusion between the sensors and countermeasures. The commander's decision aid is a key component of the vehicle protection architecture; it will be developed in FY95/FY96 and evaluated in FY97. By FY97, a low cost near term active protection concept will also be demonstrated to defeat hit-to-kill smart threats. The goal is to reduce hit probability to 0.20 from current 0.80 to 0.90.

Supports: FCS, FSCS ATD, Crusader, M113, Abrams and Bradley Upgrades.
