Abrams Reverse Engineering

Task

SURVICE METROLOGY was tasked by the Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) to conduct an expedited target exploitation, and reverse engineering effort to produce a high-resolution geometric CAD model of an as-built ABRAMS M1A2 tank.  The intended use for the detailed CAD models is for Vulnerability & Survivability Live Fire Test & Evaluation (LFT&E), Blast Modeling Analysis & Simulation, and space claim studies for equipment integration.
