A Decision Support System for Evaluating Ranges and Airspace

Overview

Ranges and airspace for Air Force training purposes are scarce resources for which the Air Force must present a rigorously defensible claim. RAND and the Air Combat Command developed an analytic structure containing a joint mission framework, training requirements, infrastructure requirements, and the current infrastructure. RAND also constructed a relational database containing several embedded models that complete parts of the assessment process for range and airspace infrastructure. A graphical user interface ...

Overview

Ranges and airspace for Air Force training purposes are scarce resources for which the Air Force must present a rigorously defensible claim. RAND and the Air Combat Command developed an analytic structure containing a joint mission framework, training requirements, infrastructure requirements, and the current infrastructure. RAND also constructed a relational database containing several embedded models that complete parts of the assessment process for range and airspace infrastructure. A graphical user interface (GUI) facilitates user access to the database. To realize the power and potential of the decision support system, a continuing investment must be made in the human capital needed to maintain and operate it. The decision support system could be expanded to include other range and airspace management information, efficient calculation of other training resource requirements, and requirements and infrastructure from non-Air Combat Command range and airspace users.
