The ARL Survivability/Lethality Directorate is the premier source of expertise in survivability, lethality and vulnerability (SLV) assessments, for senior leaders, developers and evaluators helping to ensure that U.S. personnel and equipment survive and function effectively in hostile circumstances.

SLAD conducts analytical investigations, modeling and simulations, and laboratory and field experiments to provide its analyses as well as technical advice, and to be the subject-matter expert on survivability and lethality matters to program executive officers (PEOs) and program managers (PMs), users, testers, the Army's independent evaluator, and other customers. Our products support milestone decisions concerning critical operational survivability and lethality issues for Army systems with critical survivability issues that could affect Soldiers' lives. In order to best serve the Army's analytical needs we leverage both research conducted by other Army labs as well as other services and conversely our work is also leveraged.
