Abstract:

The Force Level Automated Planning System FLAPS is a computer software package developed by Systems Control Technology Inc SCT for the United States Air Forces in Europe USAFE. FLAPS applies powerful mathematical optimization algorithms, detailed mathematical models, and large data base files to automatically perform critical force planning functions for tactical air assets. Program overall design is aimed towards assisting force planning personnel usually found at Allied Tactical Operations Centers ATOC and Allied Tactical Air Forces ATAF command headquarters. This report documents the proof-of-concept system that was initially delivered to USAFE and, as a demonstration system, shows how modern mathematical optimization techniques and off-the-air-shelf computer systems can assists force planners in quickly generating operating plans with totally effective use of limited assets.
