Abstract:

The focus of this thesis effort is gaining useful insight into aerial port operations by employing an animated simulation. Understanding airfield capacity, resources, and functioning allows greater accuracy and efficiency in both planning for future force structures and matching mobility assets with commanders objectives. Two current simulations, ACE Airfield Capacity Estimator and BRACE Base Resource Allocation and Capabilities Estimator, model mobility activities at the base level with some deficiencies. The model proposed by this thesis, APOM Aerial Port Operations Model, will provide the mobility analyst an animated simulation with two, new measures of aerial port operations a real-time estimate of airfield capacity subject to changing levels of airfield resources, and an instantaneous count of serviced aircraft service MOG. Additionally, APOM will offer an expanded utility to the mobility analyst by modeling a ground transportation network associated with the aerial port.
