Abstract: As the Department of Defense (DOD) develops new Survivability/Lethality and Vulnerability (SLV) analysis models, Ballistic Research Laboratory Computer-Aided Design (BRL-CAD) becomes an integral part in completing the task. BRL-CAD is very adaptable at creating new tools with little effort. These tools will assist us in continuing the development of Chemical Agent Deposition Analysis for Rotorcraft Surfaces (CADARS) by allowing the creation of a panelized surface model (PSM) with greater resolution. This PSM conversion methodology may also be utilized by others in the DOD community.
