Abstract: The widely accepted survivability layers onion model is extended for deployable protected land vehicles by considering separately the aspects of the vehicle and the crew. The survivability layers are subsequently re-defined in the new construct to provide greater distinction between the protection concepts contributing to each layer and each aspect. These protection concepts are used to focus the consideration of applicable protection systems, taking into account the vulnerabilities of the capability system of vehicle and crew, as well as other relevant environmental factors. A framework is introduced to provide a consistent approach to the survivability assessment of deployable protected land vehicles; it can be tailored to fit the required level of decision making. The framework features a one-page double-sided tabular tool, which can be used for any military activities from capability acquisition, doctrine development to training and operations on the battlefield.
