A NEO is designed to deploy forces in a short or no-notice situation as a result of a deteriorating situation in an foreign nation where the safety of Canadians abroad is adversely affected. In the event of a rapidly deteriorating civil situation that may overwhelming local authorities, the DFATD may seek assistance from the CAF in order to conduct an evacuation of the Canadians from the affected nation. In support of CJOC and by extension DFATD and 1st Canadian Division Headquarters planners,the CJOC OR and A Team initiated the development of the STONE analysis toolset to support NEO planning. This Scientific Report documents the STONE optimization component, STONEOpt.STONEOpt can help to determine the best allocation and utilization of transportation resources and estimate evacuation time.
