Process Lessons Learned
The capability of a system and its crew to avoid or withstand a man-made hostile environment without suffering an abortive impairment of its ability to accomplish its designated mission.
- Is there uncertainty in threat accuracy?
- Is the design or technology sensitive to threat?
- Is the design or technology sensitive to threat countermeasures?
- Is the design or technology vulnerable to intelligence penetration?
- Is the system able to prevent engagement by allied systems in a fratricidal incident?
- Is the system able to support correct identification of U.S. or allied systems, which might otherwise be engaged in a fratricidal incident?
- Does the system have support for crew training and readiness to reduce the probability of a fratricidal event?
- Do the system's weapons design characteristics reduce the probability of committing fratricide?
- Does the system's physical signature affect the system's detectability by threat forces?
- Do the system's operational characteristics affect the system's detectability by threat forces?
- Does the system appear as a high value target?
- Does the system actively prevent or deter attack?
- Does the system's concept of employment consider/include system survivability?
- Is the system able to minimize the risk to supporting personnel if attacked?
- Is the system able to protect the crew from attacking weapons?
- What are the system's potential sources of injury to the crew, or the supported troops, affected by the fielding of this system?
- Is the system able to protect the crew from hazards relating to on-board equipment (fuel, munitions, etc.) in the event of an attack?
- Is the system able to prevent further injury to the soldier after being attacked?
- Is the system able to support treatment and evacuation of injured soldiers?
- Do the physical constraints and workload placed on the soldier by the system increase or contribute to physical and mental fatigue?
- Do the cognitive constraints and workload placed on the soldier increase or contribute to physical and mental fatigue?
- Is the system able to minimize the effect of environmental stressors on the soldier?
- Is the system able to minimize the effect of physical and environmental stressors (e.g. noise, vibrations, bouncing, and extreme heat or cold) on the soldier?
- Does the system promote unit/team cohesion?
