Maritime Path Planning in Minefield Threat Environments
Joint ORSUM/Complex Systems Seminar
by Ranga Muhandiramge
Abstract: The Defense Science and Technology Organization (DSTO) have funded a project to investigate the ways in which mathematics, and in particular operations research, may be helpful in the problem of minefield path
transit at sea. These include finding minimum risk paths and detection/clearance of mines.
Many different models of the problem will be formulated and solved using different network algorithms. Of particular interested is network weight constrained shortest path problem (WCSPP) formulation and it
relation to the continuous version of the problem. Improvements to the WCSPP algorithm will also be presented.
