Optimization models for allocation of air strike assets. Strike planning is one of the fundamental tasks of an advanced Air Force and involves the assignment of strike aircraft to ground targets with a maximum level of efficiency.

Therefore, planning an optimal strike based on the preferences of the decision maker is crucial. The efficiency of the strike plan in this paper implies attacking the maximum number of targets while considering target Cited by: 6.

Li and Curry [2] used a critical-event tabu-search method with navigation on both sides of the. Abstract. The use of optimization models in decision making in the airline industry has become the norm in the modern economy. Optimization models in airline operations can be used for scheduling crews to provide professional services without overworking them, assigning high-capital equipment efficiently, selecting flight routes to cover demand for the services, and scheduling arrival slot.

One drawback of aluminum-air batteries is di culty in recharging the battery without a signi cant loss in capacity. A proposed economic model involves replacing and recycling the aluminum plates after discharge instead, which entails an estimated cost of $/kg of aluminum anode.2 Like lithium-air batteries, aluminum.

One fundamental yield management model consid-ers a single flight leg with booking requests arriving in order of booking class. This single-leg model can be analyzed to determine the structure of optimal book-ing policies and the optimal policy parameters.

Dynamic tactical air strike asset allocation using evolutionary computation Abstract: This work discusses the use of evolutionary search for automatically allocating tactical air strike assets in a coupled environment. The coupling references the dependencies that exist between SEAD and strike force assets assigned to threat and target.

Model framework and formulation In this section, a novel mixed integer linear programming model is proposed that generates optimized flight and maintenance schedules. The model is defined to optimize the operational readiness, while taking into account all relevant operational requirements and maintenance capacity limitations.

Abstract: Dynamic command and control and battle management functions require fast and effective decision aids to provide optimal allocation of resources (object/sensor pairing, weapon/target assignment) for effective engagement and real-time battle damage assessment.

The basic Weapon Target Assignment (WTA) problem considers the assignment of a set of platforms/weapons to a set of. Dynamic tactical air strike asset allocation using evolutionary computation This work discusses the use of evolutionary search for automatically allocating tactical air strike assets in a coupled environment.

The coupling references the dependencies that exist between SEAD and strike force assets assigned to threat and target objectives. Research highlights A military investment assets optimization problem including cardinality constraint can be solved by using semi-variance model.

Propose a clear quantitative solution for military strategic decision maker. Taking semi-variance as a measure of risk, portfolio optimization problem based on military investment assets is proposed.

In this thesis, we introduce and analyze models for air asset scheduling within a military theater. Speci cally, we seek to create models that generate aircraft-speci c schedules for Air askingT Orders (ATOs) within a Joint Aerospace Operations Center (JAOC).

A JAOC provides command and control of all air and space assets tasked to a. This USAF Logistics Process Optimization Study for the Aircraft Asset Sustainment Process -- Phase II Report is the second in a series of technical reports prepared under AELMA Project LM It is published as three separate volumes.

Volume I, USAF Logistics Process Optimization Study for the Aircraft Asset Sustainment Process -- Phase II Report, discusses the result and cost/benefit. The weapon-target assignment (WTA) problem is a fundamental problem arising in defense-related applications of operations research.

This problem consists of optimally assigning n weapons to m targets so that the total expected survival value of the targets after all the engagements is minimal. The WTA problem can be formulated as a nonlinear integer programming problem and is known to be NP.

Modern air cargo optimization solutions, therefore, are part of an integrated IT solution, which consumes, analyzes, and enables an airline to act upon a cohesive data set, providing a unified view of all assets.

This allows you to balance needs, such as capacity utilization, contractual obligations, proactive risk mitigation, cost concerns. typically evident in an air force that relies on numerous heavily utilized and relatively expensive equipment.

For example in US Air Force, repair items alone occupy 2/3 of total inventory asset values (which amounts to US$24b in ) [3].

Third, even though numerous aca-demic studies have underscored the ben-efits of low-volatility investing (see Chong. Asset Allocation Models: The Importance.

It is important to realise the importance of having different asset classes in a portfolio, it is necessary to have sufficiently uncorrelated assets in a portfolio so that when an asset class doesn’t earn, the others to give the investor a positive return on the portfolio.

DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A: APPROVED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE. identify the need for either a Tactical Asset Model or a Strategic Asset Model. Through years of research we have found that implementing these strategies, in accordance to risk appetite, is a more efficient way to find the most suitable investment strategy.

We hope that the preceding information has been a helpful guide in making more. The optimization model combines an Integrated Schedule Design and Fleet Assignment model and a model, based on Passenger Decision Window model, that determines passenger preference for itineraries.

We simultaneously establish frequency, departure times, fleet assignment, passenger loads and revenue within a competitive environment.

Moreover, joint campaigns are increasingly shaped by the ability to deliver strikes from the air. A clear example of the use of air power in this manner is the operation of Allied. Several strategic asset-management models exist (e.g., the Transpor-tation Asset Management Guide); however, turning these frameworks into a useful decision-making tool for Air Force asset management de-manded a comprehensive data model capable of implementing the service’s specific requirements.

Thus, the researchers used a data.The Energy Analysis Task Force (EATF), led by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Air Force Operational Energy, has been systematically visiting Air Force bases around the country to observe actual training and mission flights, and speak with flight crews (to include operators and maintainers) about flight operations, practices, and aircraft.Demand for Air Freight Transport For cargo, air freight caters to high-value, time-sensitive shipments, because the cost of moving freight by air is high, and many goods can be routed via another mode of transport.

If it is of high-value, the goods can absorb the high cost of air freight in its purchase price. If it is time-sensitive (such as.
