Abstract
A Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation (NEO) is designed to deploy forces in a short or no-notice situation as a result of a deteriorating situation in an foreign nation where the safety of Canadians abroad is adversely affected. In the event of a rapidly deteriorating civil situation that may overwhelming local authorities, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) may seek assistance from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) in order to conduct an evacuation of the Canadians from the affected nation. In support of Canadian Joint Operational Command (CJOC) (and by extension DFATD and 1st Canadian Division Headquarters planners), the CJOC Operational Research and Analysis (OR&A) Team initiated the development of the Simulation Tool for Optimizing Non- Combatant Evacuation (STONE) analysis toolset to support NEO planning. This Scientific Report documents the STONE optimization component, STONE(Opt). STONE(Opt) can help to determine the best allocation and utilization of transportation resources and estimate evacuation time.
