Abstract
The DAOR Search and Rescue (SAR) Helicopter Transit Model was developed to support the specification of minimum operating capabilities for a replacement SAR helicopter. For a given set of helicopter characteristics and operating bases, the model could determine the optimal flight paths and transit times to travel to a distribution of available refuelling sites spread across the country. Using the output of the model, coverage areas as a function of time interval can be determined. This report documents a program that produces a coverage map based on the results generated from the helicopter transit program. The final output of the program takes the form of shaded regions overlaid on a map of Canada. This report describes the procedures used by the coverage map generation program to determine coverage areas and to plot them. The report also provides a user guide on how to operate the coverage map program.
