Abstract:

A system is described for allocating artillery batteries to targets for an artillery Fire Plan. An optimal allocation, which assigns batteries to targets in the most effective manner, is initially made. This is then modified to ensure that all batteries are firing over the whole duration of the fire plan while preserving the desired effect on each target. The resulting fire plan also satisfies ammunition constraints, ie, a battery is not scheduled to fire more ammunition than what it has. User interaction is supported to allow any specific requirements to be incorporated.
