AJEM is a lethality, vulnerability, and endgame computer simulation
code capable of analyzing one or more threats attacking a single
rotary-wing or fixed-wing aircraft or gound-mobile target. It
combines elements of target modeling, threat modeling, encounter
kinematics, generation of weapon burst points, propagation of
damage mechanisms to the target, damage mechanism / target interaction
(penetration, fire, blast, etc.), target system relationships
(functionality, redundancies, etc.), and target remaining capability
or loss of function.
AJEM was designed to be a DoD standard computer simulation
for evaluating the lethality and terminal effectiveness of munitions
and the vulnerability of aircraft, missiles, and ground-mobile
systems, including battle damage assessment and repair (BDAR).
AJEM produces results that are applicable during all phases of
weapon system acquisition from research, design, and development
to production test and evaluation. AJEM produces results which
are observable / measurable for testing and real-world events.
AJEM is designed to run in conjunction with BRL-CAD®
and the MUVES environment, capitalizing on work already
performed by ARL/SLAD.
