Air Force civil engineering planners supporting a tactical aircraft deployment to a bare base in a forward operating location, need to be able to rapidly prepare a master plan for the layout of force beddown facilities. In an automated process, planners can draw on consolidated information concerning the sizing of eight major facility group functions munitions storage area, aircraft maintenance area, aircraft refueling area, flight operations area, command area, base support area, cantonment area, and medical area. Using computer graphics, planners can rapidly locate facility groups and ensure fire, explosive, and airfield safety distance constraints are met. The authors have formulated algorithms to compute the functional area sizes, and a computer graphics program that allows facility group layout with computer subroutines that automatically check safety constraints.
