Abstract
Airlift load planning is the production, from a list of widely diverse items to be loaded, cargo loads which satisfy all aircraft on/off loading and in-flight constraints while making good use of available space. Current manual methods used in the Canadian Forces do not capture the desired movement statistics required by headquarters at various levels. A project was initiated at Defence Research Establishment Valcartier (DREV) to explore the concept of using an automated load planner. Transport Aircraft Loading and Balancing System (TALBAS), to integrate the loading process into the larger scheduling and tasking processes. The report covers the progress made regarding the development of the TALBAS prototype as well as the investigation of an AI application to the problem of aircraft load planning in the form of a users guide. The comments on the success of the prototype and possible follow-on work are presented in executive summary.
