Abstract
North Korea poses a threat to the international community and Republic of Korea through its continuous high-intensity provocations, including the development of nuclear weapons and missile launches. From a national security perspective, such threats require that the Republic of Korea Air Force achieves air superiority. This is a very challenging task due to North Korea's dense air defense network. While advanced long-range weaponry and stealth technology are important assets, employing South Korea's mainstay 4th generation fighter jets in low-altitude penetration operations is also a desired capability. This thesis addresses the problem of finding the optimal route for a single fighter jet to infiltrate from a specific starting point to a target while minimizing its detectability, focusing on low-altitude, terrain-following paths that comply with feasible maneuverability constraints.
