One of the hardest tasks during the creation of a target description is to give kill criterions to the components. These criterions are used to conclude weather a component copes with or breaks during external loads, such as penetration, heat, pressure or acceleration. In the work presented in this report is a component, which normally would consist of one part in a target description, describes with many small parts. The component in this case was chosen to be a radio. It has been striked from many directions and with alternating penetrator performance. The results are compiled with a hope that they might show a consistent kill criterion that can be used for a "one-part" description of the radio. The results are promising but the method requires a lot of work. A number of other problems are present.
