Abstract
A recognized problem in the field of surveillance is how to optimally schedule the deployment of a limited number of surveillance assets over a large operating area to provide the most information. Ensuring decision-makers achieve the maximum utility of their assets is essential for effective surveillance planning. Developing a core decision model that supports multiple objectives and a wide variety of operational constraints is required to construct a flexible decision aid. Ensuring a decision aid can support a wide variety of decision-maker considerations is critical to its extended use in an evolving operational environment. This paper provides a flexible linear programming model formulation that could form the core decision model of a surveillance planning decision aid. A detailed example is provided to illustrate its utility.
