Well, Beth, it is regrettable that we have to put so much effort into such things, but that is what keeps us safe.  There is a lot of innovation that goes into warfighting. 

I was interested in seeing that they are using software from MSC.  I worked with their NASTRAN software many years ago in the aerospace industry.  NASTRAN was required, and MSC had a great implementation of the package.  You don't see this much in the commercial world.

If this use of analytics software to reduce weight and optimize structural strength was for anything else but a machine gun, I think I could get more excited. Nevertheless, you have a applaud the efforts to continuously refine gear so it's less obtrusive and taxing for our troops. Nice to see simulation software play a key role in that effort.
