Predicting FA-18 Squadron Readiness and Quarterly Flight Hour Execution Using Machine Learning

Corporate Author:

Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific San Diego United States

Report Date:



Given manning-training-equipment datasets from Naval FA-18 squadrons, a machine learning model for determining the monthly mean number of mission capable jets per squadron is created. This model is then extended and used as an input to create an ensemble of models determining the flight hour execution of a squadron over a three-month period. The ensemble of models is then used to predict squadron performance and readiness, and can correctly classify a squadrons future performance with 75 accuracy 90-days in advance.
