The United States Army 75th Ranger Regiment conducts combat parachute operations as part of United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The Rangers are the largest deployable asset of USSOCOM, and are required to plan and execute large-scale parachute assaults into hostile theaters with little or no notice. Generally fighting numerically superior enemy, far from the support of the conventional Army, Rangers must arrive capable of self-sustaining combat operations in any operational environment. This thesis provides Ranger air load planners a tool to rapidly plan feasible mission equipment loads. The Ranger Air Load Planner (RAP) is simple to learn and operate, provides load plans selected from, pre-approved, United States Air Force load templates, and supports dynamic decision support with rapid solution response. An optimization model is used in the thesis to objectively assess the quality of RAP load plans. RAP is a working product that can be adapted for use in air load mission planning by all units under USSOCOM
