Abstract
An important element of military operations is the elaboration, mitigation and evaluation of different Courses of Actions (CoAs) in order to overcome emergency situations. In this kind of decision-making situation, it is important analyses to compare and rank the CoAs according to their ability to meet the selected criteria. It is often necessary to balance the importance of these criteria accordingly to the decision-maker's (Commander) values. The Defence Research Establishment Valcartier has developed an advisory tool prototype, which could be used to describe an airspace violation incident, to describe and evaluate different CoAs, and to perform decision analysis in order to determine the most appropriate CoA. The evaluation of the CoAs is accomplished within a multiple criteria decision aid framework. In this technical note, we briefly report the development of the Commander's Advisory System for the Airspace Protection (CASAP).
