This monograph summarizes research in support of the 2002 Army Science Board’s Aviation Study. The study aimed to explore and assess survivability concepts and technologies associated with future heavy-lift transport aircraft that could be used to make possible new operational maneuver options for the Army’s future force. The results of this research are included in the final briefing and report produced by the Army Science Board; this monograph provides a detailed account of the specific survivability research, and it includes information on scenario, methodology, and the analytic findings. This work should be of interest to warfighters, planners, technologists and policymakers, particularly those involved with shaping policy for future joint warfare.
