Abstract
This report contains preliminary work pertaining to attendance of a meeting regarding preparations for a Very Short Range Air Defence (VSHORAD) modification version of the expanded chassis Grizzly. There is some documentation of discussions and concepts surrounding the trial and the adaptation of the vehicle. A multiparty approach of scientific personnel from DCIEM covering the fields of toxicology of the air in the vehicle, sound overpressure exposure limits assessment and Javelin rocket motor backblast effects on the guns with regard to the Javelin Physical Launch Effects (JPLE) training simulator system. The toxicology and sound overpressure work is being done by other DCIEM personnel. The Biomedical Engineering Lab (BME) is to perform video documentation and backblast wind velocity analysis in coordination with the other two activities. This report describes preliminary thoughts and analysis on the matter.
