Abstract
This work presents recent research to develop a series of optimization- and simulation-based decision support tools to aid in operational maritime mission planning for integration into the Globally Networked Maritime Headquarters with Maritime Operations Center. We present three tools: Global Fleet Station Mission Planner recommends route and mission scheduling for a naval contingent embarked with training teams and sustainment requirements. Combat Logistic Force Planner recommends how to employ special transport ships that carry ship and aircraft fuel, ordnance, dry stores, and food, to sustain navy battle groups operating worldwide for 90-180 days. Container Port Simulation models individual container vessels approaching the west coast of the U.S., starting with their required notice of arrival 96 hours out in the Pacific and, in case of closure of the intended destination port, suggests an alternate destination port in accordance with the shipper’s economic self-interest to minimize time and cost to the ultimate destination.
