Expert: Rapid modeling of new systems vital to countering threats
An effective way to get systems from development to the field is through something called "physics modeling." As its name suggests, physics modeling uses all sorts of physics data - from speed, weight, vibration and torque to temperature, humidity, wind, dust, ballistics, and even aging, to name just a few - to simulate real-world conditions that a new weapons system might be subject to. New systems, shown here, were on display at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C.
