Abstract
The Vehicle Protection Factor (VPF) code has been shown to be a useful engineering tool for estimating the radiation protection afforded by armoured vehicles and other structures. The first two versions of VPF have been well received by the military shielding community. A number of suggestions have been offered by users of early versions of the code. These include: implementing some of the more advanced features of the ATR5 code used to perform the air over ground radiation transport analyses; allowing the ability to study specific vehicle orientations within the free field; implementing an adjoint transport scheme to reduce the number of transport runs required; investigating the possibility of otherwise accelerating the transport scheme; and upgrading the CAD package used by VPF. The implementation of these and other features within VPF is discussed in this report.
