Optimal Search and Interdiction Planning
Royset, Johannes O.
MetadataShow full item record
International law enforcement organizations around the world endeavor to combat high drug related mortality rates by seizing illicit drugs in transit over international waters. This mission requires e ective plans that route multiple aerial searchers and position surface interdictors through large expanses of geographical areas in the presence of highly uncertain estimates about drug smuggler whereabouts. This high uncertainty combined with the challenge of coordinating search and interdiction make it particularly di cult to conduct mission planning. We present optimal search and interdiction models that address these important challenges and demonstrate how planners can used these models by applying them to a realistic counterdrug operation scenario.
