Abstract
TacTool is a computer based application program system owned by Defence R&D Canada Atlantic. The TacTool software package is used to analyze, research, and optimize sonar sensor deployment by Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA). This report summarizes the results of test cases related to adding enhanced optimization capability to TacTool. In order to meet this objective, the Lipschitz Global Optimizer (LGO) program system has been introduced, installed, and tested – as a fully integrated new module - in the TacTool modeling environment. A concise review of the necessary professional background is provided, followed by implementation details and user guidance. Illustrative numerical results (corresponding to selected deployment test configurations) are presented, with recommendations for future development.
