Abstract : Military communication networks can experience severe and rapid changes in both transmission capabilities and traffic demands. Consequently, real-time methods for obtaining optimal traffic routes are needed. Rapid methods are also needed to evaluate new networks or extensions to present networks. A digital computer program is described that can be used for these purposes. The general organization of the program is described, as is the purpose of each portion of the program. Detailed operation instructions are given, specifying all the inputs and outputs. A sample network problem is presented. Flow charts of the program are appended. Finally, possible future extensions to the program are enumerated. (Author)
