Abstract:

This document was designed to provide the US Army CORPS air defenders with the necessary information to effectively use and operate the US Armys Rapid Air Defense Evaluation System RAIDES. There are five manuals for RAIDES. RAIDES was developed by Systems Control Technology, Inc. Palo Alto, CA for the Joint Tactical Fusion Program Management Office JTFPMO. RAIDES is a derivative of USAFEs Force Level Automated Planning System FLAPS and was extensively modified to incorporate a Blue versus Red situation display for the US Army air defenders. The RAIDES program consists of two major stand-alone software programs the SUPR program which defines a 3-D real-world statespace area where the US Army air defenders would operate and RAIDES which provides Blue survivability estimates for Red attacking forces given a specific battlefield scenario and real-world threat. This Positional Handbook contains the basic RAIDES operating instructions for the US Armys Portable Analysis Workstation PAWS and a description of the RAIDES data base files which are managed internally by the program and are unique to the RAIDES program. The RAIDES data base management software is a home grown variety due to program operating speed requirements and data base accessing. Automated planning system.
