Weapons with enhanced precision and penetration capability enforce an investigation of the necessity of a defensive aid suite technology for protective structures. The survivability of a protective structure protected by a defensive aid suite depends on the threat, the properties of the defensive aid suite and the properties of the object of protection (the protective structure). In this report different threats for a "medium class" protective structure and different warhead mechanisms for the counter measures are presented on a general level. Further, a general methodology for structuring, analysing and evaluating the defensive aid suite for a protective structure is presented. Finally, the methodology is applied to an example where a "medium class" protective structure is attacked by a penetrating weapon.
