    The public-facing discussion forum for the Survivability Technical Committee is now ready for use. All AIAA members and other AIAA users are welcome to participate.

    The Survivability Technical Committee was established to "promote the development of survivability as a design discipline, including both the survivability assessment methodology (analysis and testing) and the survivability enhancement technology, for air and space systems. Survivability involves both susceptibility, the likelihood the system is hit by a damage-causing mechanism, and vulnerability, the likelihood the system is killed due to the hit. Other essential elements of survivability are crashworthiness and repairability, the ability to rapidly repair a damaged system. The threats to system survivability consist of weapons encountered in combat, terrorist weapons, and other hostile environments."
