Removal of the Plan of Intended Movement (PIM) Moving Window
MetadataShow full item record
This project compares the fuel consumption of transits constrained by the PIM window against transits where the window wasnﾒt enforced. We also compare fuel consumption under enforcement of PIM window scenarios and when the Transit Fuel Planner (TFP) is used. The TFP is a tool that shows how many hours a ship should spend at which speeds in order to travel a given distance in a set time using the least amount of fuel. To determine fuel consumption under different constraints, we model the transits using the Fuel Usage Study Extended Demonstration (FUSED) tool. FUSED is an Excel/VBAbased tool that allows users to model the effects of different policies and actions on carrier strike groups or groups of cruisers and destroyers.
