Electronic warfare support jamming premission route optimization
Watts, Kenneth D.
MetadataShow full item record
An algorithm is developed to determine an optimum route for an ECM support aircraft. Constraints imposed on the problem include aircraft speed limitations, tolerable exposure of the ECM aircraft to enemy fire, and available jammer assets. A prior information required to implement the program consists only of the hostile electronic order of battle and the strike group route. The program is purposely simplified to enable future transfer to smaller minicomputers available to the electronic warfare squadrons.
