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


III.M.04. Field Fortifications. Develop technology required for expedient protective systems that will reduce manpower, material, and logistic requirements for survivability missions. By the end of FY95, develop protective measures that will increase the survivability of Brigade and Division size command centers without interfering with their mobility and operational requirements. By the end of FY97, develop a family of protective systems using advanced materials and design procedures that will increase the survivability of troops (in fighting positions), weapons systems, materials, and equipment.

Supports: Design criteria, materials specifications, and construction guidance for the criteria update cycle of FM 5-103 "Survivability," FM 5-34 "Engineer Field Data," "Field Fortifications," and TM 5-302 "Army Facilities Component System."
