Abstract : A vulnerability analysis was performed on a missile launcher using the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) aircraft vulnerability code, Computation of Vulnerable Area and Repair Time (COVART III). A subsequent analysis was also performed using the Vulnerability Analysis for Surface Targets (VAST) computer code, and the results compared. While only slight differences were noted in the view-averaged comparisons, significant differences were noted on a cell-by-cell level. This report documents the model comparison.
