Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) vulnerability/lethality table look-up server has gone through several iterations of development since first introduced in 1997 (then as the distributed interactive simulation [DIS] lethality communications server). These development iterations represented migration from its original transmission control protocol/internet protocol client/server communication form based in DIS, to a combined DIS-high level architecture (HLA) form used during the 2001 Research, Development, and Engineering Center (RDEC) Federation ?CalEx? (calibration experiments) and onto this current form that is all HLA and was designed for the RDEC command ?1stApp? (First Application) experiment 2003 and presented in this report. This interface control document (ICD) describes the current state of exposed interface control components of the ARL vulnerability/lethality table look-up server (the server). The ICD describes the interface to an existing implementation of the server (with its look-up table capability). The interface described in this report includes an area that provides for further expansion, allowing delivery of damage descriptions from near real-time physics-based vulnerability models (future dynamic calculation capability).
