In the past few years, modeling and simulation (M&S) researchers have made impressive strides in their ability to improve ground vehicle reliability and Soldier safety. A TARDEC team's physics-based, computational study called "Blast-on-the-Move" epitomizes the steady progress in M&S capabilities applicable to defense acquisition.
The engineering team recently won the Army Materiel Command (AMC) Award for Meritorious Achievement in Systems Analysis, Small Group Category, for 2012. The study is called Multi-temporal Analysis of Underbody Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Theater Events on Ground Vehicles Moving in a Convoy Using Modeling and Simulation (M&S).
The award winners from the Analytics team in the Ground Systems Evaluation, Assessment and Assurance (GSEAA) department are: Ravi Thyagarajan, Sanjay Kankanalapalli, Madanmohan Vunnam and Jaisankar Ramalingam.
