SURVIAC is the DoD focal point for nonnuclear
survivability/vulnerability data, information, methodologies,
relating to U.S. and foreign aeronautical and surface systems.
SURVIAC's scope covers the survivability of allied and other
non-adversary systems to threat weapons as well as the effectiveness
of U.S. weapons against foreign systems.
Nonnuclear weapons include conventional missiles and guns, directed
energy weapons, and chemical/biological weapons.
include fixed and rotary-winged aircraft, both manned and
unmanned, missiles, tanks, trucks, armored personnel carriers,
artillery, radar vans, ships, and
spacecraft. Data holdings include relevant survivability
and lethality information on acquisition, detection, tracking,
launch, fly-out and fuzing characteristics, the
countermeasures and counter-countermeasures employed, and
terminal effects, system design, performance and operational
information; acoustics, infrared, optical, electro-optical and
radar signatures; combat damage and repair; and component
probability of kill given a hit (Pk/h) data and combat history
Homeland Security encompasses intelligence and warnings;
border and transportation security; domestic counterterrorism;
protecting critical infrastructures; defending against
catastrophic threats, and emergency preparedness and response.
SURVIAC is a
DoD Information Analysis Center
(IAC) sponsored by the
Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) with support
from several organizations including the Joint
Aircraft Survivability Program Office (JASPO) and
Coordinating Group on Munitions Effectiveness (JTCG/ME).
