Using Optimization to Solve Military Problems

PROFESSOR ALEXANDRA NEWMAN, Colorado School of Mines

Friday, 29 March 12:00PM EST

Professor Newman presents an overview of optimization modeling projects in four services of the military: (i) the Navy (assigning Tomahawk weapons to surface ships and submarines), (ii) the Army (planning personnel assignments), (iii) the Air Force (budgeting for the Air Force Space Command) and (iv) the Coast Guard (scheduling the deployment and maintenance of helicopters). She then discusses three contemporary topics: (i) scheduling cadets into courses at the United States Air Force Academy, (ii) minimizing violence in counterinsurgency operations, and (iii) realigning and closing bases. Professor Newman concludes with future work.
