Abstract:

The study develops a simulation model which can be used to assist in making decisions among competing aerial delivery systems for emergency resupply. It is the result of a request by Tactical Air Command for an examination of the possible use of drone systems for the resupply role. Although the examples covered are concerned with drone type systems the simulation model can easily handle manned systems. The methodology involves the use of a cost structure which can and should be altered to fit the situation under investigation. The simulation model uses the operational characteristics of the competing systems and characteristics of the scenario to provide information required for use with the cost structure.
