Global Mission Scheduling

gms-dash-boardAs part of the Global Mission Scheduling (GMS) research and development project, funded by Air Mobility Command (AMC) through the sponsorship of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL),  we are developing scheduling algorithms to support human planners in their effort to efficiently allocate resources to airlift requirements. The GMS scheduler relies on incremental constraint-based search and optimization procedures to generate, extend and revise detailed schedules for the airlift requirement missions. The scheduler is integrated with complex visualizations of the overall mission plan (implemented by Raytheon BBN Technologies), to assist the human user in making decisions related to mission itinerary, resource allocation, and mission chaining.
