Abstract:

The EA-6B Mission Planning and Route Optimization Program was created for use with the WANG 2200 computer system by aircrewman deployed on board aircraft carriers. It is an interactive computer program designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the mission planning process, while reducing the time involved in this evolution. These goals are accomplished through the use of two schemes. First is an automation of the clerical planning tasks of retrieval, listing, and plotting of information. Second is an optimization routine designed to aid in the selection of the optimum EA-6B route of flight, when in a Modified Escort role. Author
