Abstract:

This document was designed to provide the US Army CORPS helicopter planners with the necessary information to effectively use and operate the US armys CORPS Helicopter Attack Planning System CHAPS. There are five manuals for CHAPS. CHAPS was developed by Systems Control Technology, Inc, Palo Alto, CA for the Joint Tactical Fusion Program Management Office JTFPMO. CHAPS is a derivative of USAFEs Force Level Automated Planing System FLAPS and was extensively modified to incorporate US Army attack helicopters. The CHAPS program consists of two major stand-alone software programs the SUPR program which defines a 3-D real-world statespace area where the helicopters would operate and CHAPS which provides survivability estimates for attacking helicopters given a specific battlefield scenario and real-world threat. There are two volumes to the CHAPS Positional Handbook This Volume contains the basic program operating instructions with Appendixes A and B Volume II Appendix C contains the CHAPS data base specifications.
